Schroder is out for Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons due to a back injury. Schroder had been dealing with back tightness prior to Friday's contest against the Cavaliers, which is apparently flaring up following Tuesday's game against the Bucks -- the first half of a back-to-back set. With both him and Kent Bazemore (rest) out of action, Malcolm Delaney, Isaiah Taylor, Tyler Dorsey and DeAndre' Bembry are all candidates to see extra run.
Schroder scored 23 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-12 FT) while adding seven assists, three rebounds and two steals across 34 minutes in Sunday's 118-115 win over the Pistons. Schroder put up a very efficient afternoon Sunday, getting to the rim with ease and absorbing contact en route to a season-high in free-throw attempts and makes. Schroder continues to act as the unquestioned leader of this young Hawks squad, which should allow for him to continue posting serviceable numbers for the remainder of the season, barring injury.
Schroder scored 25 points (10-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding five rebounds and four assists in 26 minutes during Friday's 123-107 loss to the Cavaliers. While he handled his business on the offensive end, he also allowed Kyle Korver to ring up 30 points with some spotty defense. Schroder's now averaging 20.2 points, 4.2 boards, 4.2 assists and 1.2 three-pointers through five games in February, and the lack of reliable options around him on the Atlanta roster should keep his usage rate inflated for the rest of the season.
Schroder (back) will start Friday against the Cavaliers, Hawks' writer Kevin Chouinard reports. Schroder was dealing with some lower back tightness earlier in the day but he'll manage to assume his regular starting role in the Hawks' rotation. If he is limited at all because of the injury, expect Malcolm Delaney to see some extra action off the bench.
Schroder is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Cavaliers due to lower back tightness, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. It looks like the addition of Schroder to Friday's injury report is just precautionary, as all signs are pointing to the point guard suiting up for a home matchup with Cleveland. Expect Schroder's status to be confirmed later in the day as tip-off approaches.
