Horford scored 25 points (9-18 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and three blocks against the Pacers on Monday night.

This was a fine outing for Horford - he contributed across the board. Horford managed to drain his one and only three-point attempt and even went perfect from the free throw line by going six for six from the stripe. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for Horford.

Horford scored six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3 FT) with two rebounds, three assists and one block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's win against the Heat.

This was a very disappointing game considering he looked to be slowly finding some form. The door is still slightly ajar for some buy low offers.

Horford scored 23 points (11-16 FG, 0-1 3P, 1-2 FT) with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

He hasn't been able to get going so far, averaging just 14.1 points and what would be a career-low 6.6 boards per game even after Wednesday's big night, so hopefully for Horford's fantasy owners the performance was a sign he's returning to his usual healthy form.

Horford had a solid Friday outing against the Heat as he managed to put up 19 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 28 minutes.

Horford most notably connected on his first three pointer of the season, otherwise it was a pretty typical night for the center. The three that he converted on was just his second attempt from beyond the arc this season and so it might be wishful thinking to expect more deep shots from Horford in the future.

Horford scored 20 points (9-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 28 minutes in the win over Indiana on Saturday.

Horford had a nice offensive game after scoring just 12 points in the opener. He wasn't much of a factor on the boards, but that will be an outlier. Look for Horford's minutes to be limited in the early going as he returns from a pectoral tear.

Horford made a successful return to the court Wednesday, scoring 12 points (6-15 FG) with 13 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 31 minutes during a loss to the Raptors.

A healthy Horford will be a big addition to a Hawks' roster that barely squeaked into the playoffs last season. Once he shakes off the rust, look for the center to start scoring close to 20 points a night once again.

Horford (chest) was able to play 16 minutes in Thursday's preseason game against the Bulls and finished with four points, six rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

Horford has now successfully played in two exhibition games as he continues to make his way back from a major chest injury that stifled his 2013-14 season. Even so, he averaged 18.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.5 blocks during 29 games last year. With significant numbers across the board, the 28-year-old is a tough option to pass on despite his recent struggles with injuries.

Horford (chest) is expected to play in at least one of the Hawks' three exhibition games this week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "I think we are hopeful that at some point during the week he'll get a chance to play," coach Mike Budenholzer said following Monday's practice.

Horford has been out since tearing his right pectoral muscle 29 games into last season. He's progressed slowly throughout camp, but Horford is finally close to returning to full-contact action. He took part in nearly all of the team's five-on-five work Monday and his health will continue to be monitored on a daily basis. The Hawks have games Tuesday (Heat), Thursday (Bulls) and Saturday (Pistons) this week.

Horford (chest) won't play in Saturday's exhibition game, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports.

He continued contact work and played four-on-four Friday, and while the team feels good about how he's progressing, they will play it safe and sit him out Saturday. Unless he experiences a setback, it seems likely that he'll be ready to go for the start of the regular season.
