Goodwin has appeared in four of the Hawks' eight games in February, averaging 6.3 points, 2.5 assists, 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointers in 14.3 minutes.
Though Goodwin has earned 10-plus minutes in three of those four appearances, much of his playing time came when the outcome wasn't in question. Goodwin's failure to get off the bench in Monday's 123-112 loss to the Knicks -- a game that was fairly competitive throughout -- is an indicator that the Hawks don't plan on using him in the rotation most nights. Even while Rajon Rondo (back), Tony Snell (Achilles), Kris Dunn (ankle) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) all were sidelined Monday, Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce still turned to Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, Cam Reddish and two-way rookie Skylar Mays ahead of Goodwin at either backcourt spot.
Goodwin (knee) is available for Saturday's game against the Pacers.
The 25-year-old is dealing with stiffness in his right knee and was considered probable to face Indiana, so his availability never truly appeared in question. Goodwin had 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes Friday against the Spurs, and he could have a similar workload Saturday with Rajon Rondo (back) and Tony Snell (Achilles) sidelined.

Goodwin was quite productive in Friday's loss to the Spurs, recording 13 points, three rebounds and three assists over 16 minutes. He's dealing with right knee stiffness Saturday, but he'll likely be able to suit up for Atlanta during the matchup against the Pacers.
Goodwin posted 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 23 minutes off the bench in the Hawks' 112-94 win Monday over the 76ers.
Goodwin went over 20 minutes for just the second time this season as the Hawks were well out in-front of the 76ers for most of the game. Goodwin set season-highs in points, rebounds, shots attempted, shots made and three pointers attempted while tying a career-high with three three-pointers made.

Goodwin was listed as questionable for Saturday's contest due to a left ankle impingement, but he'll ultimately be able to take the court against Cleveland. He should resume his depth role for Atlanta in Saturday's matchup.

Goodwin has seen backup point guard action for the Hawks, garnering 13.7 minutes per game and averaging 3.7 points, 2.3 assists and 1.7 rebounds. With Rajon Rondo (knee) out, if Goodwin is sidelined, backup point guard duties may go to Bogdan Bogdanovic.

Goodwin emerged as a decent contributor off the bench last season, and the Hawks rewarded him with a guaranteed deal for 2020-21. However, after a series of offseason additions, Goodwin will likely have a tougher time finding regular minutes.
The Hawks plan to fully guarantee Goodwin's $1.7 million contract for 2020-21, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Atlanta won't have to formally decide on whether to guarantee Goodwin's deal until Nov. 29, but the organization doesn't appear to be considering releasing him or trading him elsewhere over the next week and a half. Assuming he remains on the roster, the 25-year-old could open the upcoming season as the top backup to star point guard Trae Young.
Goodwin (coach's decision) didn't see the court Monday in the Hawks' 143-138 double-overtime win over the Hornets.
The Hawks' top four guards (Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, Cam Reddish and Jeff Teague) were all available, and with the contest remaining competitive from start to finish, coach Lloyd Pierce couldn't find any room in the rotation for Goodwin. The 24-year-old had appeared in each of the Hawks' previous six games, logging no more than 19 minutes in any contest.
Goodwin agreed Tuesday with the Hawks on a two-year standard NBA contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Goodwin had occupied one of the Hawks' two two-way spots, but he'll gain a little more security now that Atlanta has opted to add him to the 15-man roster. The second-year pro typically plays a minor role when both Trae Young and Jeff Teague are healthy, but he's been an excellent producer off the bench on a per-minute basis. Over 25 appearances with Atlanta, Goodwin is averaging 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.9 three-pointers in 13.6 minutes.
Goodwin scored 21 points (7-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four assists, two rebounds and a block in 28 minutes off the bench during Friday's 112-107 loss to the Celtics.
With Trea Young (ankle) out of action, Jeff Teague got the start at point guard, but it was Goodwin who took advantage of the available opportunities by tying the career high in scoring he set Dec. 30 in Orlando. The second-year guard isn't seeing the kind of minutes or usage that would lead to consistent fantasy value, but he should be on the DFS radar if Young misses any additional time.
Goodwin chipped in with 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 123-100 loss at Dallas.
Goodwin outplayed Jeff Teague despite playing four fewer minutes in this game, and while the veteran might get the starting nod Monday against the Celtics if Trae Young (ankle) is unable to feature, Goodwin could still see decent minutes as the team's backup point guard if the former doesn't happen. The second-year guard is only averaging 9.0 points and 2.4 assists in 16.0 minutes over his last five appearances off the bench.
Goodwin furnished 19 points (6-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 20 minutes in the Hawks' 102-95 win over the Clippers on Wednesday.
Jeff Teague got the start at point guard in place of Trae Young (thigh), but Goodwin considerably outperformed his veteran teammate. The 24-year-old hit double digits in the scoring column for the first time since Jan. 10, with the fact he put up a career-high number of shot attempts helping his cause in Atlanta's comeback win. Goodwin could be in for another solid allotment of minutes off the bench Friday against the Thunder if Young remains out for that contest.
Goodwin will come off the bench Tuesday against the Suns, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
With Trae Young (hamstring) back in the lineup after a one-game absence, Goodwin will resume his usual bench role. In 10 appearances off the pine, he's averaging 6.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 12.2 minutes.
Goodwin had eight points (3-12 FG, 1-8 FT, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Sunday's 108-86 loss at Brooklyn.
Goodwin was highly inefficient in his first career start, making just one of eight threes and shooting just 25 percent from the field. His value will depend heavily on Trae Young's availability for Tuesday's matchup against the Suns, but even if Goodwin moves back to the bench, he should continue being part of the rotation moving forward.
