Dunleavy was waived by the Hawks on Friday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Dunleavy was let go by the Hawks in an attempt avoid his guaranteed contract before the 12:01AM deadline on Saturday. After joining Atlanta mid-season following a stint with Cleveland, Dunleavy shot nearly 43 percent from long range. He will likely draw interested from playoff-bound teams as a veteran sharpshooter off the pine.

Dunleavy is expected to be waived prior to the start of free agency, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's contract for next season becomes guaranteed if he's not waived before July 1, so the Hawks will likely proceed with that move prior to 12:01AM on Saturday. After beginning last season with the Cavaliers, Dunleavy came to Atlanta as part of the Kyle Korver trade and went on to appear in 30 games for the Hawks, averaging 5.6 points and 2.3 rebounds, while shooting nearly 43 percent from beyond the arc. While he's well past his prime at age 36, Dunleavy will likely draw interest from playoff-caliber teams as a shooting specialist off the bench.

Dunleavy contributed 20 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 20 minutes during Friday's 114-100 victory over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

With Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) sidelined due to injury, Dunleavy was asked to play 20 minutes off the bench against his former team. In response, he tied his season-high of 20 points while drilling four of his five three-point attempts. He had been shooting poorly in the seven games leading up to Friday, averaging 2.6 points across 13.9 minutes per game while hitting only 33.3 percent of his attempts. But, the matchup against his former team seemed to drive him to perform above and beyond his recent averages. That being said, he probably shouldn't hastily be added to fantasy rosters as a result of his impressive outing, considering that he'll probably lose playing time to both Sefolosha and Bazemore once they return.

Dunleavy (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Dunleavy's sore right ankle doesn't look like it will prevent him from missing a second straight game, the Hawks are entering a weekend back-to-back set, so it wouldn't be surprising if coach Mike Budenholzer held the veteran sharpshooter out Sunday against the Nets. Injuries have limited Dunleavy to just four appearances in March, with the 36-year-old averaging 4.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.8 three-pointers in 17.0 minutes per game in those contests.

Dunleavy will not play Wednesday against the 76ers due to a sore ankle, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunleavy tweaked the ankle Tuesday against the Suns, and he'll be held out on what's likely a precautionary basis. The 36-year-old missed several games earlier in the month due to an issue with the same ankle, but he'd appeared in four straight games, playing at least 15 minutes in each contest. In Dunleavy's absence, expect rookie DeAndre' Bembry to pick up a few extra minutes.

Dunleavy (ankle) contributed nine points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 15 minutes in a 104-100 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It was Dunleavy's first appearance since Feb. 24, as a case of right ankle synovitis has sidelined him for nearly a month. Dunleavy should be able to provide the Hawks with a three-point shooting presence off the bench when called upon, but he could be at risk of losing his rotation spot when Kent Bazemore (knee) returns to action.

Dunleavy (ankle) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's tilt with the Wizards, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being cleared for Monday's game against the Hornets, Dunleavy ended remaining on the bench and hasn't seen the court since Feb. 25. He was given a probable designation coming into Wednesday as well, so his availability was always expected. That said, considering he's coming off a lengthy absence and he's a bit buried on the depth chart, Dunleavy likely won't be relied upon for more than just a handful of minutes.

Dunleavy (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunleavy was cleared to suit up in Monday's lost to the Hornets in what would have been his first appearance since Feb. 25, but the Hawks were only keeping him available for emergency purposes and didn't use him. After getting in a practice Tuesday, Dunleavy should have a more realistic chance of suiting up Wednesday, but he likely won't be asked to play more than a handful of minutes. Even with Kent Bazemore (knee) out Wednesday, Dunleavy looks to be no better than fourth in the pecking order on the wing behind Tim Hardaway, Thabo Sefolosha and Taurean Prince.

Dunleavy (ankle) will be active for Monday's game against the Hornets, but is unlikely to play, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunleavy has missed the entirety of March thus far while working back from right ankle synovitis, but is finally nearing a return to the court. He's expected to be active for Monday's game, which could mean he'd be alright to play in an emergency situation. That said, it seems more likely that Dunleavy will continue to sit out for another game or two, with the hope of being at full strength ahead of the playoffs.

Dunleavy is out indefinitely after being diagnosed with right ankle synovitis, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran wing has had a second opinion on an MRI taken Feb. 28, which confirmed he will be out for an undetermined length of time. Dunleavy averaged 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 19 minutes per game after being acquired by the Hawks from the Cavaliers. Taurean Prince and DeAndre' Bembry figure to take on Dunleavy's minutes providing depth at small forward.
