Mack's season ended prematurely when he suffered a separated shoulder in the playoffs. He averaged 5.4 points, 0.7 three-pointers, 1.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 0.5 steals in 15 minutes per game through 55 games in 2014-15.

At 25 years-old, the four-year NBA veteran is under team control through 2016-17. Mack will miss 3-4 months rehabbing his surgically repaired shoulder. He had a mediocre season from an efficiency standpoint, averaging 40 percent from the field, 32 percent from three, and 81 percent from the free-throw line. With Jeff Teague playing 31 minutes per game and Dennis Schroder playing 20 minutes per game, Mack will most likely fill a bench role next season coming off of his injury.

Mack (shoulder) will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a Grade 5 AC separation and is expected to miss 3-to-4 months, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Mack sustained the injury late in Tuesday's Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers and was seen exiting the arena with his arm in a sling. With ligament tearing in the shoulder along with the AC separation, Mack will be limited for most of the offseason, but the hope is that he'll be at full strength for the start of training camp in the fall.

Mack suffered a separated shoulder in Tuesday's game and will undergo surgery next week, Jessica Camerato of Basketball Insiders reports.

Mack left the Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday with a sling on his injured shoulder. Camerato reported that there is no timetable for Mack's return at this point, but that should become more clear after Mack goes under the knife.

Mack suffered a shoulder injury during Tuesday's series-ending loss to the Cavaliers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Mack left the arena in a sling Tuesday night after suffering what the team's medical staff believes to be a right shoulder separation. The injury occurred late in the fourth quarter after Mack posted 10 points, two rebounds and an assist in 24 minutes. More details will emerge once Mack is able to be evaluated back in Atlanta, but for now it looks as though he could be sidelined for part of the early offseason.

Mack scored 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT) with four rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes in the overtime loss to the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Mack fell out of the rotation earlier in the playoffs and did not play in four straight games. With Kyle Korver (ankle) out, the former Butler guard is back and getting minutes. He could be a nice DFS play on Tuesday in Game 4.

Mack logged four minutes on the floor in Atlanta's 99-92 win over Brooklyn in Game 1. In his limited time on the floor, Mack posted two points, two steals, and two assists.

Although Mack was effective in his time on the court, he'll likely to continue to have a limited role off Atlanta's bench. Atlanta's top two point guards, Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder, simply provide too big of a road block to Mack getting meaningful minutes.

Mack had 10 points (4-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with five assists and three steals over 19 minutes Wednesday against Golden State.

Mack got a good bit of playing time for the third straight game Wednesday, although this time it was not due to a player ahead of him on the depth chart getting a night off. Atlanta got run out of the building, which led to a lot of playing time for the Hawks' reserves. Mack has been solid lately when given a good chunk of playing time, averaging 14 points and 3.3 assists in 25 minutes over his last three games. Still, he's usually only relevant when Atlanta rests a starter. That said, Kyle Korver's absence makes Mack a fringe option in deep leagues.

Mack came off the bench to play 35 minutes Sunday with Kyle Korver (nose) leaving the game early. He scored a season-high 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) in addition to dishing out three assists.

Korver broke his nose Sunday, so it's unclear how long he'll be out for. Should he miss extended time, Mack could become fantasy relevant, but Kent Bazemore would be a more likely candidate to play the wing in his possible absence.

Mack made his first appearance in over a month Friday against the Raptors. He scored nine points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and added one rebound and one assist in 13 minutes off the bench.The Hawks lost the game by 25 points, and the result seemed inevitable even before the start of the fourth quarter. The blowout loss is probably the main reason for Mack's action. Though he is a decent scorer, he is buried pretty deep on the Hawks' depth chart, and it would take some major injuries for Mack to become anything more than a deep league afterthought.

Mack (calf) was available for Friday's game against the Warriors, but never made an appearance.

The Hawks only used nine players in this game, so it's not shocking that Mack didn't make it into the game. In 31 games this season, he's averaging just 13.7 minutes per game. His next chance to return from an injury that has kept him out since Jan. 17 is Sunday against the Grizzlies.
