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, )
