Dunleavy (ankle) contributed nine points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 15 minutes in a 104-100 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday. It was Dunleavy's first appearance since Feb. 24, as a case of right ankle synovitis has sidelined him for nearly a month. Dunleavy should be able to provide the Hawks with a three-point shooting presence off the bench when called upon, but he could be at risk of losing his rotation spot when Kent Bazemore (knee) returns to action.
Dunleavy (ankle) has been cleared to play in Wednesday against the Wizards, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Despite being cleared to play in Monday's game against the Hornets, Dunleavy ended remaining on the bench and hasn't seen the court since Feb. 25. He was given a probable designation coming into Wednesday, so while he'll be available again, it's no lock that Dunleavy will actually play.
Dunleavy (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Dunleavy was cleared to suit up in Monday's lost to the Hornets in what would have been his first appearance since Feb. 25, but the Hawks were only keeping him available for emergency purposes and didn't use him. After getting in a practice Tuesday, Dunleavy should have a more realistic chance of suiting up Wednesday, but he likely won't be asked to play more than a handful of minutes. Even with Kent Bazemore (knee) out Wednesday, Dunleavy looks to be no better than fourth in the pecking order on the wing behind Tim Hardaway, Thabo Sefolosha and Taurean Prince.
Dunleavy (ankle) will be active for Monday's game against the Hornets, but is unlikely to play, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Dunleavy has missed the entirety of March while working back from right ankle synovitis, but it sounds like he's finally made enough progress in recent days to dress. Even so, the Hawks likely want to have him get in some more practice time, so he'll only be available in an emergency situation Monday.
Dunleavy is out indefinitely after being diagnosed with right ankle synovitis, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The veteran wing has had a second opinion on an MRI taken Feb. 28, which confirmed he will be out for an undetermined length of time. Dunleavy averaged 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 19 minutes per game after being acquired by the Hawks from the Cavaliers. Taurean Prince and DeAndre' Bembry figure to take on Dunleavy's minutes providing depth at small forward.
