Hawks News

Tim Hardaway Jr.    G/F  Hawks



Mike Budenholzer said he has no intention of altering his starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Wizards. It sounds like the Hawks will again go with their standard starting group of Dennis Schroder, Tim Hardaway Jr., Taurean Prince, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard for Game 2, with Kent Bazemore coming off the bench. Hardaway Jr. struggled with his shot during Atlanta's Game 1 loss, connecting on just 2 of his 11 shot attempts, so he'll need to be much better on Wednesday night for the Hawks to have a chance of stealing a game on the road.

Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Hawks



Mike Budenholzer confirmed that Thabo Sefolosha was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday. "It’s good to know that Thabo is there and I’m sure he’ll have a role and he’ll stay ready," Budenholzer said. "To go more than 10 deep is not easy but he’s a heck of an option to have at 11." Taurean Prince started alongside Tim Hardaway Jr. on Sunday, with Kent Bazemore and Mike Dunleavy earning minutes off the bench, so there's no clear spot for Sefolosha in the rotation.

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks



Schroder scored 25 points (8-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding nine assists, three rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 114-107 Game 1 loss to the Wizards.

Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Hawks



Thabo Sefolosha picked up a DNP-CD during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Wizards. Sefolosha is out of the rotation in Atlanta right now, and that might not change anytime soon, so he can't be relied upon in fantasy hoops at the moment.

Kent Bazemore    G/F  Hawks



Kent Bazemore (right knee bone bruise) scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one block and one turnover in 28 minutes. Bazemore missed seven of Atlanta's final 13 games of the regular season due to the bruised knee, but his right knee was a complete non-issue during this one, and it would be shocking to see him spend any additional time on the sidelines.

Dwight Howard    C  Hawks



Dwight Howard hauled in 14 rebounds during Sunday's Game 1 loss, adding seven points, one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes. The Wizards went with a lot of small ball lineups to try and make things uncomfortable for Howard, and that strategy worked. D12 didn’t really have any plays called for himself, more so being tasked with cleanup duty on the boards, and that’s likely the role he’ll have during this first-round series.

Taurean Prince    F  Hawks



Taurean Prince scored 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Wizards, adding two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 32 minutes. Prince was quiet for most of the game, but then he caught fire during the fourth quarter of action, scoring 10 of his 14 points on 4-of-5 shooting. With Prince scoring 14 points in his postseason debut, he became the first Hawks' rookie to score at least 10 points in his playoffs debut since Al Horford.

Paul Millsap    F  Hawks



Paul Millsap went 5-of-8 from the field and 9-of-11 from the charity stripe on his way to 19 points during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Wizards. Scoring wasn’t much of an issue for Millsap in this one, as he was ultra-aggressive at getting to the charity stripe, but unfortunately, he wasn’t really able to bring any other supporting stats to the box score. He should be able to bounce-back with a more robust stat line in Game 2.

Apr 16 - 5:04 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr.    G/F  Hawks



Tim Hardaway Jr. couldn't get his shot to drop during Sunday's Game 1 loss, going 2-of-11 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line on his way to seven points in 28 minutes. Hardaway Jr. got into some early foul trouble and just never really got going in this one, but he averaged 18.0 points against Washington during the regular season, so he should be able to bounce back during Game 2.

Apr 16 - 4:59 PM

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks



Dennis Schroder scored 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Wizards, adding nine assists, three rebounds, one steal, three 3-pointers and two turnovers in 36 minutes. Schroder's left foot was not an issue at all, so there's no reason to expect him to miss any more time moving forward. He was also a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe in this one, giving him a sterling true shooting percentage of 67.1 on the evening, which was particularly impressive with how well John Wall defended him. It'll be interesting to see if this efficient trend continues in Game 2.
