Dunleavy was waived by the Hawks on Friday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
As expected, Dunleavy was let go by the Hawks in an attempt avoid his guaranteed contract before the 12:01AM deadline on Saturday. After joining Atlanta mid-season following a stint with Cleveland, Dunleavy shot nearly 43 percent from long range. He will likely draw interested from playoff-bound teams as a veteran sharpshooter off the pine.
Dunleavy is expected to be waived prior to the start of free agency, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The veteran's contract for next season becomes guaranteed if he's not waived before July 1, so the Hawks will likely proceed with that move prior to 12:01AM on Saturday. After beginning last season with the Cavaliers, Dunleavy came to Atlanta as part of the Kyle Korver trade and went on to appear in 30 games for the Hawks, averaging 5.6 points and 2.3 rebounds, while shooting nearly 43 percent from beyond the arc. While he's well past his prime at age 36, Dunleavy will likely draw interest from playoff-caliber teams as a shooting specialist off the bench.
Dunleavy contributed 20 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 20 minutes during Friday's 114-100 victory over the Cavaliers.
With Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) sidelined due to injury, Dunleavy was asked to play 20 minutes off the bench against his former team. In response, he tied his season-high of 20 points while drilling four of his five three-point attempts. He had been shooting poorly in the seven games leading up to Friday, averaging 2.6 points across 13.9 minutes per game while hitting only 33.3 percent of his attempts. But, the matchup against his former team seemed to drive him to perform above and beyond his recent averages. That being said, he probably shouldn't hastily be added to fantasy rosters as a result of his impressive outing, considering that he'll probably lose playing time to both Sefolosha and Bazemore once they return.
Dunleavy (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
While Dunleavy's sore right ankle doesn't look like it will prevent him from missing a second straight game, the Hawks are entering a weekend back-to-back set, so it wouldn't be surprising if coach Mike Budenholzer held the veteran sharpshooter out Sunday against the Nets. Injuries have limited Dunleavy to just four appearances in March, with the 36-year-old averaging 4.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.8 three-pointers in 17.0 minutes per game in those contests.
Dunleavy will not play Wednesday against the 76ers due to a sore ankle, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dunleavy tweaked the ankle Tuesday against the Suns, and he'll be held out on what's likely a precautionary basis. The 36-year-old missed several games earlier in the month due to an issue with the same ankle, but he'd appeared in four straight games, playing at least 15 minutes in each contest. In Dunleavy's absence, expect rookie DeAndre' Bembry to pick up a few extra minutes.
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.
Dunleavy (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dunleavy is set to miss his fourth straight game, as he's yet to shake a lingering ankle injury. His next opportunity to take the court will be Sunday against the Pacers, but even once he's healthy, it's possible that coach Mike Budenholzer could opt to keep rookie Taurean Prince in the rotation over Dunleavy.
Dunleavy (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Dunleavy missed Monday's game against the Hawks with the same injury, and after failing to practice Tuesday, it looks like the Hawks will err on the side of caution and keep him out for another contest. The veteran forward's minutes were already on the decline following the recent return of Thabo Sefolosha, so Dunleavy isn't a lock to be included in coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation once he's back to full strength.
Dunleavy is inactive for Monday's contest against the Celtics with an ankle injury, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dunleavy was listed as probable for Saturday's contest against the Magic, but didn't see the floor, and will miss Monday's game with a different injury. In his place, regular rotation players such as Kent Bazemore, Tim Hardaway, and Thabo Sefolosha will likely see extended run. Dunleavy's next chance to play will come Wednesday against the Mavericks.
Dunleavy is dealing with a right knee issue, but is still listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Magic, Hawks' beat writer KL Chouinard
The veteran wing presumably sustained the injury in Thursday's win over the Rockets. He has played between 17-and-22 minutes in each of the past four games, and barring any setbacks, figures to be in line for a similar workload Saturday.
Dunleavy scored 20 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 111-98 win over the Bucks.
In his second game with the Hawks, Dunleavy came through with his best scoring performance of the season and first game with 20 or more points since the 2014-15 playoffs. The 36-year-old wing may not have much left in the tank, but Atlanta's ball movement on offense could allow him to find some occasional shooting success from their second unit.
Dunleavy is expected to make his Hawks debut Friday against the Celtics, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The veteran officially reported to the Hawks on Tuesday, nixing earlier notions that the two sides were working toward a buyout. After passing his physical and taking part in a pair of practices, Dunleavy will be available Friday in what will likely be a minor role off the bench. Dunleavy was used sparingly during his time with the Cavaliers, but he could eventually work his way into a larger role with the Hawks, who are in need of three-point shooting after dealing Kyle Korver to Cleveland as part of the Dunleavy deal.
Dunleavy will report to the Hawks on Tuesday, but won't be available for that evening's game against the Nets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After a brief standoff, Dunleavy ultimately agreed to report to the Hawks following his acquisition from the Cavaliers, but he won't be available to play right away. Dunleavy still needs to pass his physical, and though that's considered a formality, coach Mike Budenholzer likely wants to put the veteran through a practice before deploying him off the bench. The Hawks are off Wednesday and Thursday, giving the veteran some time to acquaint himself before likely making his debut Friday against the Celtics. He's expected to hold only a limited role off the bench for the Hawks, though he could see an uptick in the 15.9 minutes per game he averaged while working behind LeBron James in Cleveland.
Updating a previous report, Dunleavy now plans to report to the Hawks on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
It was previously suggested that Dunleavy, who was disgruntled about being traded to the Hawks over the weekend, would attempt to secure a buyout of his contract. However, after meeting with Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer, the veteran wing apparently received assurances that the Hawks are intending to compete this season, and plan to have a regular role available for him. With Dunleavy now in the fold, it appears that the trade that sent Kyle Korver to the Cavaliers has now been completed, though Dunleavy will still need to pass a physical. He could be in uniform as soon as Tuesday against the Nets, but the Hawks may want to give Dunleavy some time to get familiar with his new team before he dresses in games.
Dunleavy has no plans to report to the Hawks and is hoping to secure a buyout of his contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Dunleavy was traded to the Hawks over the weekend as part of the deal that sent Kyle Korver to the Cavaliers, but since the veteran signed with Cleveland this offseason with the expectation he'd contend for an NBA title, he's likely less than enthused to land with Atlanta, a middle-tier team in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks likely don't have major plans to include Dunleavy in their rotation and were reportedly attempting to include a third team to the trade willing to absorb the 36-year-old in a deal, but found no takers. Dunleavy has until 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday to report to the Hawks before the team could begin fining him. According to Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio, the Hawks have no intention of rescinding the trade with the Cavaliers, as they made the deal specifically so they could pick up a future first-round draft pick.
Dunleavy was officially traded to the Hawks on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The deal was initially reported on Thursday, but it's now official, as Dunleavy and Mo Williams will head to Atlanta, along with a future first-round pick, in exchange for Kyle Korver. The Cavs added Dunleavy with a three-point specialist role in mind, but he's struggled when given opportunities this season, and Korver, one of the better outside shooters in recent memory, represents a tangible upgrade for a Cleveland team that ranks second in the NBA in both made threes and three-point attempts. With Atlanta seemingly entering a rebuild, it's unclear if Dunleavy will remain with the Hawks. Despite his struggles, Dunleavy, should the Hawks decide not to keep him, would likely be able to catch on with another team in need of shooting off the bench.
