Dennis Schröder sat out practice on Thursday and his status for Friday's Game 3 is still uncertain. Schröder is still getting treatment according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore.

Schröder was injured on a drive late in the fourth quarter of Atlanta's Game 2 win. He was helped to the locker room and did not return. X-Rays were negative and Mike Budenholzer told reporters on Wednesday that he was progressing.

Schröder is averaging just four points and 1.5 assists in just over 15 minutes of playing time over the first two games of the series. He is shooting just 25 percent from the field in the series but did make 3 of 6 attempts in Game 2.

If Schröder is unable to play, the Hawks will likely be forced to turn to veteran Kirk Hinrich as the back up point guard behind starter Jeff Teague.

The team will also recall Lamar Patterson and Walter Tavares from the NBA D-League on Thursday after the Austin Spurs were eliminated from the D-League playoffs on Wednesday. Patterson was in uniform for the Hawks in Game 2 as an insurance option.
