Millsap collected a monstrous double-double Saturday in the Hawks' Game 3 loss to the Nets. He put up 18 points (7-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists, five steals, and one block in 35 minutes.

Millsap's versatility as a power forward is what makes him such a unique fantasy player. He has the ability to contribute in every category on a given night, and he can contribute elite numbers in steals and three-pointers from the power forward position.

Millsap scored a team-high 19 points (7-11 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 34 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Nets.

It was a nice bounce-back for Millsap, who removed the pad protecting his shoulder after struggling with his shot in the series opener. Assuming he doesn't have any further issues with the shoulder, he should be in line for another solid performance on Saturday in Brooklyn for Game 3.

Millsap was seen practicing without a protective compression shirt or pad Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Millsap played with the pad on his shoulder in Game 1, and it sounds as though he's hoping to go without it in Game 2 on Wednesday. Millsap had only kinesiology tape on the shoulder at practice, but he did not speak to reporters so at this point it's unclear what his plan is for Game 2.

Millsap may attempt to play Game 2 without the protective pad on his shoulder to improve his range of motion, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Millsap's added range of motion could make him more effective on both ends of the floor, but it will likely come down to how his shoulder holds up without it. He should be in the lineup either way, but shedding the padding could provide the Hawks with a boost as they look to extend their series lead to 2-0.

Millsap (shoulder) struggled in a Game 1 win against the Nets on Sunday. He posted six points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 33 minutes of action.

Millsap went just 2-for-11 from the field and was clearly struggling to find his shot. Still, he stuffed the stat sheet in other categories and remains a top-tier player. Look for him to bounce back in Game 2.

Millsap (shoulder) will start in Sunday's Game 1 against the Nets, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Millsap had a rough close to his regular season as he dealt with lingering shoulder soreness. In fact, he missed five of the last six games of the regular season with this injury. Obviously there's some concern that he won't be able to play at the high level we've been accustomed to over the course of the year, although Millsap is still a potent threat on the court at less than 100 percent.

While Millsap was able to play in Wednesday's game, he is still dealing with soreness in his shoulder and likely will be for awhile, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The sore shoulder will not prevent Millsap from suiting up in the postseason, but it could limit his production a bit. Millsap will have the benefit of extra rest during the playoffs, but he shot just 2-of-9 in Wednesday's game -- his first action since Apr. 4.

Millsap (shoulder) scored five points (2-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with six rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks in 27 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Bulls.

His shot wasn't falling, but otherwise it was a productive night for Millsap, who'd missed the previous five games with a shoulder injury. Expect him to see his normal workload when the Eastern Conference regular season champ Hawks begin the playoffs.
