Schroder scored just eight points, but dished out 10 assists and pulled down five rebounds over 29 minutes in Tuesday's 90-88 loss to the Nets. In his second straight start in place of the injured Jeff Teague, Schroder went 3-of-11 from the field and 1-of-4 from distance, as he had a tough time against the bigger Jarrett Jack. But as long as Teague remains out, Schroder will get a nice boost in fantasy value.
Schroder is expected to enter the starting lineup at point guard during Sunday's game against the Jazz with Jeff Teague (ankle) listed as doubtful, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. Early on in the season, Schroder has occasionally started alongside Teague at shooting guard while Kyle Korver has rested during back-to-back sets, but the 22-year-old looks like he'll get the opportunity to conduct the offense by himself Sunday. Schroder has been quite effective in limited playing time, averaging 12 points, 4.1 assists, and 0.9 steals over 23.1 minutes per game. If Schroder surpasses 30 minutes of playing time Sunday, he could represent a worthy target in daily formats.
Schroder will start Wednesday's game, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports. With Kyle Korver (rest) inactive Wednesday, the Hawks will go with two point guards in the starting backcourt. Jeff Teague still figures to be the primary ball-handler, but both he and Schroder will have an opportunity to see big minutes.
Schroder will start Friday's game against the Hornets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Reports. Schroder will get the nod alongside Jeff Teague with Kyle Korver (ankle) sitting out Friday's game. Schroder averaged 16.5 points and 3.0 assists in the first two games of the season despite averaging just 22 minutes per contest, and he will have a good chance to match or improve upon those numbers with more minutes likely to come Friday night.
Schroder had his 2016-17 team option picked up by the Hawks on Tuesday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Now entering his third season with the Hawks, Schroder, the 22-year old German national will be looking to improve on a 2014-15 campaign where he averaged 10.0 points, 4.1 assists and 19.7 minutes in 77 games. Schroder has shown promise throughout the preseason, but All-Star point guard Jeff Teague will continue to limit Schroder's fantasy value as long as he's producing like he did last season. Barring a dramatic breakout from Schroder or an injury to Teague, expect Schroder to continue getting similar minutes to last season in a backup role.
