Dennis Schroder was arrested last week on misdemeanor charges, but despite that, he suited up for the preseason game against the Miami Heat. Schroder scored 12 points, grabbed four rebounds, dished out five assists, and registered one steal while shooting 35.3 percent from the field.

DeWayne Dedmon shines in debut game

DeWayne Dedmon was acquired by the Atlanta Hawks last month after the Spurs opted out on Dedmon's team option. He played terrific basketball in his first preseason game as a member of the Atlanta Hawks team roster. He registered 12 points, three rebounds, two steals, and one block while shooting five for seven from the field (71.4 percent).
