Shelvin Mack PG ATL 1 Day
Shelvin Mack hit 7-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for a career-high 17 points and six assists in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder.
He caught fire late and helped lead a late Hawks charge, but it wasn't enough as the Thunder held them off. Mack's been playing well as the backup point guard, but unless you're in a 20-team league or deeper, there's no reason to pick him up.

Shelvin Mack (ankle) returned to action on Friday, scoring three points with one rebound and one steal in 21 minutes.
Even when playing significant minutes he is not going to produce with Jeff Teague and Lou Williams around to handle the rock. Mack can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Shelvin Mack won't play on Wednesday after spraining his ankle during Tuesday's game.
He will stay in Atlanta while the team travels, as will Kyle Korver (ribs) and Lou Williams (knee), which leaves Jeff Teague and Shelvin Mack as the team's only active PGs. He is day-to-day and could return as soon as Friday's game vs. Dallas.

Shelvin Mack suffered a left ankle sprain in the first half of Tuesday's game and is questionable to return.
He had leapfrogged rookie Dennis Schroder and was backing up Jeff Teague before the injury. Teague will handle most of the point guard duties and it should be interesting to see if Schroder gets some playing time tonight.

Shelvin Mack has been the first point guard off the bench in the Hawks' last three games.
With Dennis Schrder apparently falling out of favor with two DNP-CD's in his last three games, Shelvin Mack seems to have assumed the backup point guard role behind Jeff Teague. Coach Mike Budenholzer was non-committal in his remarks, but did shower praise on the Butler alum, "I think that Shelvin has played well, obviously the last couple games but also earlier when he's had opportunities." Even though Mack has averaged 22 minutes per game over his last three contests, his stats still don't justify a pickup in anything but the deepest fantasy leagues just yet.

Shelvin Mack will assume backup PG duties with Dennis Schrder suspended for Thursday's game.
"[Jeff Teague] has been playing pretty big minutes," said coach Mike Budenholzer. "Could he play a couple more? Sure ... [But we] feel good about Shelvin and feel good about our group. I don't think I want to run Jeff into the ground this early in the season." Teague is averaging a career-high 34 minutes through four games, which is a nice sustainable number for fantasy purposes.

The Hawks may waive PG Shelvin Mack, whose 2013-14 contract is fully unguaranteed, and he's already drawing interest from Olimpia Milano.
Atlanta could decide to keep Mack as a third PG but he'd be unlikely to earn many minutes with Jeff Teague and rookie Dennis Schroeder in uniform. He averaged 4.6 points and 2.2 assists in 31 appearances with the Wizards, Sixers and Hawks last year, while shooting a career-best 36.7 percent from downtown.

Shelvin Mack has a team option in his contract for next season.
When the Hawks signed Mack for the remainder of the season, the team tacked on an option so Mack could play in summer league. This way, the Hawks can evaluate him before deciding on a final roster entering the 2013/14 season.
