News: Horford (chest) was able to play 16 minutes in Thursday's preseason game against the Bulls and finished with four points, six rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Impact: Horford has now successfully played in two exhibition games as he continues to make his way back from a major chest injury that stifled his 2013-14 season. Even so, he averaged 18.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.5 blocks during 29 games last year. With significant numbers across the board, the 28-year-old is a tough option to pass on despite his recent struggles with injuries.(RotoWire, )

News: Horford (chest) is expected to play in at least one of the Hawks' three exhibition games this week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "I think we are hopeful that at some point during the week he'll get a chance to play," coach Mike Budenholzer said following Monday's practice. Impact: Horford has been out since tearing his right pectoral muscle 29 games into last season. He's progressed slowly throughout camp, but Horford is finally close to returning to full-contact action. He took part in nearly all of the team's five-on-five work Monday and his health will continue to be monitored on a daily basis. The Hawks have games Tuesday (Heat), Thursday (Bulls) and Saturday (Pistons) this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Horford (chest) won't play in Saturday's exhibition game, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports. Impact: He continued contact work and played four-on-four Friday, and while the team feels good about how he's progressing, they will play it safe and sit him out Saturday. Unless he experiences a setback, it seems likely that he'll be ready to go for the start of the regular season.(RotoWire, )

News: Horford (chest) played in full contact five-on-five situations during Wednesday's practice, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Horford is incrementally increasing his practice load following last season's torn pectoral muscle. After being cleared for two-on-two contact earlier in the week, Horford went through five-on-five activities Wednesday. According to Horford, how his body responds Thursday will help guide his schedule moving forward, but the Hawks' center maintains that he intends on playing during the preseason.(RotoWire, )
