Millsap mustered up 23 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 11-13 FT), 14 rebounds, and four assists in 35 minutes during the Hawks' 116-101 win versus the Grizzlies on Friday. Millsap was an absolute monster on Friday, turning in a superb stat-line despite committing three turnovers. The Grizzlies simply had no answers for him all night, and Millsap made it look effortless. Over the last two games he's producing 24.0 points per game on an unsustainable 67 percent shooting from the field. The Hawks are back in action on Saturday versus the Spurs.
Millsap (shoulder) showed no signs of injury in Tuesday's blowout win over the Celtics. He scored a team-high 25 points (10-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with nine rebounds and three assists over 32 minutes. It was believed that Millsap was dealing with a shoulder ailment, but that didn't appear to hamper him much. He came a rebound short of his third straight double-double, but has still managed to fill up every category on a consistent basis this season.
Millsap (shoulder) will start Tuesday's contest against the Celtics, KL Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. There was a belief that Millsap was dealing with a right shoulder injury, which was seemingly substantiated due to visible kenesio tape on the region during practice Monday. However, he'll brush off the concern, as he has all comers, with marks of 17.9 points (on 47 percent shooting), 9.3 rebounds, 3.7 rebounds, 2.1 steals, 1.2 three-pointers, and 1.1 blocks in 34 minutes per contest this season.
Millsap is believed to be nursing a right shoulder injury, but practiced fully Monday and is probable for Tuesday's game against the Celtics, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Millsap was shooting around with kinesio tape on his shoulder during Monday's session, according to KL Chouinard of Hawks.com, but it doesn't appear to be anything that will put him at risk of sitting out Tuesday or even seeing a notable reduction in minutes. Fantasy owners can probably rest easy in keeping Millsap active, as even a less-than-100-percent version of himself is still incredibly valuable.
Millsap scored 14 points (3-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT) with 11 rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks in 31 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Cavaliers. He struggled with his shot, but Millsap contributed more than enough in other categories to be valuable. It's his second straight double-double and seventh in 15 games, and the fourth time this season that he's had multiple steals and blocks in the same game.
