Isaiah Taylor: Misses out on roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raptors waived Taylor on Sunday, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

Taylor was the Raptors' penultimate cut as the team looks to reduce its roster count to 15 before the start of the regular season. The 25-year-old point guard will likely turn his focus to finding work in the G League or overseas.

Raptors' Isaiah Taylor: Signs partial deal with Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor agreed to a partially-guaranteed contract with the Raptors on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Taylor, undrafted out of Texas in 2016, has played 71 career games between Houston and Atlanta. He's averaged 6.3 points, 2.9 assists and 1.4 rebounds across 17.2 minutes. Taylor will fight for a reserve point guard role in Toronto.

Isaiah Taylor: Waived by Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (leg) was waived by the Cavaliers on Saturday, Sam Amico of reports.

With Taylor suffering a stress fracture, the Cavaliers have opted to move on and open up a roster spot for a healthier prospect. Taylor may be out for about a month, but then will be able to sign with another organization.

Cavaliers' Isaiah Taylor: Could be out for one month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (leg) could be out for up to one month, Chris Fedor of reports.

Taylor was fighting for one of the final spots on Cleveland's 15-man roster, but after a CT scan revealed a stress fracture in left leg Thursday, that spot is now in jeopardy. Whether or not Taylor will be awarded a spot on the Cavaliers' roster should be revealed at some point next week.

Cavaliers' Isaiah Taylor: Suffers stress fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor suffered a stress fracture in his left leg, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Taylor will undergo testing and rehab for the injury and his return date will be determined over the next several days. It seems unlikely that undrafted guard out of Texas will play in Friday's preseason finale against the Pistons. Look for more updates on his status to come throughout the next week.

Cavaliers' Isaiah Taylor: To join Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor agreed to a one-year contract with the Cavaliers on Thursday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Taylor, undrafted out of Texas in 2016, got his first real stab at NBA action last season with the Hawks. He appeared in 67 games for the team, including nine starts, averaging 6.6 points and 3.1 assists. He'll be behind Collin Sexton, George Hill and likely Jordan Clarkson on Cleveland's depth chart, so it will be tough for Taylor to garner consistent rotational minutes.

Isaiah Taylor: Waived by Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was waived by the Hawks on Saturday, KL Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

After a four game stint with the Rockets his rookie season, Taylor suited up for 67 games with the Hawks this past year including nine starts. He averaged 6.6 points and 3.1 assists across 17.4 minutes. The Hawks are in rebuilding mode, and apparently Taylor was not in their plans, so he will now look for a new opportunity.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Sees action in 67 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor mustered 6.6 points, 3.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds across 67 games played with Atlanta during the 2017-18 season.

Taylor was a reliable contributor off the bench for the Hawks this season as he shot a fine 41.8 percent from the floor and 70.0 percent from the free-throw line. The rookie from Texas will begin the second year of his fully guaranteed contract signed in July 2017 next year.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Set for bench role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor will shift to a bench role for Sunday's matchup with the Celtics.

Taylor has been the Hawks starting point guard since Dennis Schroder (ankle) was ruled out for the rest of the season, but it appears coach Mike Budenholzer will experiment with Damion Lee in that top spot alongside DeAndre Bembry in the backcourt. As a result, Taylor heads to the bench and could be stuck with minutes in the upper-teens or low-20s. He'd already been trending in the wrong direction after logging 25 and 19 minutes, respectively, over the last two contests.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: One assist away from double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor finished with 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt), nine assists and two rebounds during Tuesday's 101-98 loss at Miami.

Taylor was one assist away from his first career double-double, as he also shot a fine 50 percent from the floor Tuesday on his way to the 15-point mark. Currently, the former Texas Longhorn is averaging 6.5 points and 3.0 assists for the Hawks during his second season in the NBA.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Scores 12 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor scored 12 points (5-18 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Friday's 101-91 loss to Philadelphia.

Making his third straight start, Taylor once again scored in double-figures. However, the guard was less than efficient on Friday, shooting 5-of-18 for 27.3 percent. His 18 field goal attempts were a career-high. Taylor should have an extended run in the starting lineup with Dennis Schroder (ankle) being ruled out for the remaining six games of the regular season. He will look to extend his run of double-digit scoring performances against Orlando on Sunday.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Scores 20 points Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor scored 20 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3PT, 8-9 FT) to go with two rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 126-114 loss to Minnesota.

In the second of back-to-back starts, Taylor eclipsed the 20 point mark once again. The guard was an efficient 54.5 percent from the floor while sinking a career-high 8-of-9 free throws Wednesday. Starting in three out of the last four games, Taylor has found a rhythm offensively, averaging 16.7 points while playing 26.7 minutes per night. However, this run may come to an end with Dennis Schroder (ankle) possibly returning to the lineup as early as Friday against Philadelphia. If not, Taylor will have at least one more start to add to run of impressive scoring performances.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Pours in 26 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor compiled 26 points (10-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 118-99 loss to Houston.

Taylor moved into the starting lineup with Dennis Schroder (ankle) on the sidelines, recording a career-best 26 points in the process. He was on fire in this one, draining shots from everywhere. If Schroder is forced to miss more time, Taylor could be a sneaky add in many formats, especially now that the playoffs have arrived.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Starting at point guard Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor will start at point guard in Sunday's game against the Rockets.

With Dennis Schroder (ankle) out Sunday, Taylor will get his second start at point guard in the last three games. In his last start against the Kings, Taylor scored an impressive 18 points to go along with three rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Leads team in scoring during loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor generated 18 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 26 minutes in Thursday's 105-90 loss to the Kings.

Taylor drew the start at point guard for Dennis Schroder (rest) and thrived with the opportunity, generating a team-high scoring total while drawing even with Taurean Prince for the team lead in shot attempts. Taylor has had his moments while seeing some extra run over the last six games -- often in place of Kent Bazemore (knee) -- and has proven capable of providing solid scoring and assist numbers in particular when seeing sufficient minutes.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Starting at point guard Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor, with Dennis Schroder (rest) out, will start at point guard for Thursday's contest against the Kings, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Taylor should see extended run Thursday, which could boost him into DFS relevance. In the 12 games this season that Taylor has seen over 20 minutes, he's averaged 11.7 points and 4.9 assists.

Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Cleared to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (back) has been cleared to play in Saturday's matchup with the Bucks, KL Chouinard of reports.

Taylor is dealing with some upper back spasms, but after going through his pregame routine without any issues, is set to be active and available to play. With the Hawks still dealing with a plethora of injuries, Taylor should continue to see minutes in the mid-to-low 20s off the bench. Over his last three games, Taylor has averaged 10.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists across 23.7 minutes.

March 16, 2018 06:04 PM
Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Probable with upper back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is probable for Saturday's contest against the Bucks due to upper back spasms, KL Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

This is the first word of Taylor nursing an injury, so it seems possible he picked it up during Thursday's contest against the Hornets. More word on his status should arrive following Saturday's morning shootaround.

March 13, 2018 06:12 PM
Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Headed back to bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor will shift back to a bench role for Tuesday's matchup with the Thunder, Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Taylor picked up the start on Sunday against the Bulls with Dennis Schroder (elbow) sitting out, posting seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 FT), one rebound and eight assists across 27 minutes. However, with Schroder back to full strength and taking on his typical starting spot, Taylor will shift back to a bench role. The likes of Malcolm Delaney (ankle), Antonius Cleveland (ankle), Jaylen Morris (ankle) and Kent Bazemore (knee) are all still out, so Taylor could still see an elevated role despite coming off the bench.

March 11, 2018 02:04 PM
Hawks' Isaiah Taylor: Will play, start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ankle) will start at point guard for Sunday's game against the Bulls, KL Chouinard of reports.

Taylor was questionable for Sunday's contest with an ankle injury, but has since been cleared to take the court as usual. With Dennis Schroder (elbow) being ruled out, Taylor will get the opportunity to make the spot start in his place, giving him some temporary utility in DFS contests.
