News: Carroll posted 24 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and three treys in 33 minutes of action Friday against the Heat.
Impact: Carroll has been solid over the last five games, averaging 15.6 points, 6,4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers made during that span. He's a consistent source of multiple counting categories, and while the magnitude of his production is far from impressive, he still makes a strong all-around impact in 8-man formats.
News: Schroder got the start for the ailing Jeff Teague (ankle) Friday against the Heat and contributed a double-double for 12 points, three rebounds, 11 assist, and one steal in 33 minutes of action.
Impact: Schroder is averaging 14.0 points, 2.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.6 three-pointers made over the last five games. He's worth owning in standard leagues even if he doesn't start for much longer, as much of his production has been off the bench.
News: Scott (toe) has shed his walking boot, marking the first time without it since suffering a left big toe sprain Mar. 11 against the Nuggets, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Impact: Scott did a little work on the court at morning shootaround Friday, but likely remains a little ways away from returning. His initial timetable was slated as two-to-four weeks, and he currently sits at the early end of it. Scott will likely need to get in a full practice or two before returning to the court, however.
News: Antic (neck) may be held out of Friday's game against the Heat, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Impact: Antic has a stiff neck, but the team has not stated whether or not he'll take the court Friday. With a playoff spot locked up, the Hawks have intimated that they may rest some players down the stretch, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Antic is ultimately held out.
News: Schroder will get the start Friday against the Heat, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Impact: Jeff Teague has a "tender ankle," so Schroder will enter the starting five and should have a chance to see big minutes. The Hawks may rest some regulars over the next few games - Friday marks the start of a four-games-in-five-nights set - but Schroder is unlikely to be included in those plans.
News: Teague (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Heat due to a "tender ankle," the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "Jeff is tender and will not play tonight," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "He is not able to go. We will just wait and see how it goes and err on the side of caution. We'll see how he does today."
Impact: With a playoff spot locked up and a comfortable lead on second-place Cleveland, the Hawks are just being cautious with their starting point guard as they begin a four-games-in-five-nights set. Dennis Schroder will get the start at point guard in Teague's place.
