Mack (calf) will not play Wednesday against Brooklyn, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
A calf strain has kept Mack out of the last four games, and he'll miss a fifth straight contest Wednesday. He's without a timetable at this point but should be considered questionable to play Friday against Portland. In his absence, Kent Bazemore and Dennis Schroder should continue to pick up a few extra minutes.

Mack (calf) underwent an MRI on Tuesday which confirmed he's dealing with a left calf strain, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Mack suffered the injury against the Bulls on Saturday and sat out Monday's win over the Pistons. Coach Mike Budenholzer said Monday that Mack could miss the rest of the week, and Tuesday's official diagnosis would seem to confirm that he'll sit out at least a game or two. Mack will not play Wednesday against the Pacers, and it's unlikely he plays Friday when the Hawks host Oklahoma City.

Mack (calf) could be out for a week, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Mack has already been ruled out for Monday's game after getting forced out of Saturday's game with the strained calf, and it appears an extended absence is possible. The Hawks went to Kent Bazemore on the point as Teague's backup with Dennis Schroder unavailable Saturday, but Schroder is expected to be available Monday. A combination of the reserve guards will likely pick up Mack's 14 minutes off the bench in his absence.

Mack had been playing sparingly. With many of its starters resting, Atlanta was able to give Mack more playing time and he came through with a big game against the woeful 76ers. Jeff Teague (rest) should be back on Wednesday, so Mack will likely head back to the bench.

Mack received more with Jeff Teague (hamstring) out. He had not appeared in the previous two games, but had the semi-mythical hot hand against the Cavaliers. If Teague remains out, Mack could have some short-term value in deeper leagues.

Mack received nearly 15 minutes in the Hawks opener against the Raptors and finished with two points, one rebound, and five assists.
Mack and Dennis Schroder are the two backup point guards for Jeff Teague. Schroder ended Wednesday's game with only three minutes compared to Mack's 15, so it seems as if Mack has the rights to be first in the pecking order. Although Mack shot only 1-for-6 from the field and 0-for-2 from beyond the three point line, it was good to see him get the five assists. With Teague probably playing over thirty minutes for most games this season, Mack could struggle to put up fantasy worthy numbers.
