Free agent point guard Isaiah Taylor will work out for the Nuggets this week in Denver, according to Harrison Wind of BSN Nuggets.
Taylor was sidelined last year with a tibia injury but appeared in 67 games for the Hawks in the 2017-18 season. He has also worked out for the Suns and the Celtics during the summer without being able to secure a contract yet.

The Cavs have waived Isaiah Taylor, Kobi Simmons, Emmanuel Terry and Bonzie Colson.
It's been a rough few days for Taylor, who was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his leg yesterday. The Cavs now have their roster down to 14 players.

Isaiah Taylor has a stress fracture in his leg.
Taylor, one of Cleveland's two-way contract players, will be re-evaluated in the coming days. This won't have an impact on fantasy leagues but the Cavs might scour the waiver wire for some guard insurance.

The Cavaliers signed guard Isaiah Taylor to a two-way contract on Thursday.
The Cavs have been looking to add another point guard over the last few weeks, and Taylor fills that role at a baseline level. Whether he will actually play many meaningful minutes for this team isn't clear and at this stage is probably not very likely.

Isaiah Taylor has been waived by the Hawks.
Taylor spent last season sharing backup point guard duties with Malcolm Delaney but now it appears both men will be looking for new homes. Taylor played in 67 games last year and missed some time with a retinal tear and back soreness. He averaged 6.6 points, 3.1 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 triples in 17.4 minutes last year. The third-year player and will look to catch on as a second/third string point guard elsewhere.

Isaiah Taylor scored 10 points on 5-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's finale against the Sixers.
Taylor played in 67 games and averaged 17.5 mpg this season, dealing with a retinal tear of his eye that cost him about two weeks and some back soreness late in the season. He finished outside of the top-350 and hit just 41.8 percent from the field and 70.2 percent from the line. If he can't improve there he'll have a real hard time supporting a stat set with just 0.9 money counters per contest.

Isaiah Taylor moved to the bench on Sunday afternoon but still proved helpful for fantasy owners with 13 points, two rebounds and six assists.
Taylor hasn't quite burst onto the scene as hoped when Dennis Schroder was ruled out for the season but he's still be a decent low-end guard play. It's possible he moves back into the starting lineup for Atlanta's next game but he'll probably hold onto some assists value either way.

Isaiah Taylor threw up a dud on Wednesday night against the Heat, shooting 1-for-8 and finishing with just two points and three assists in 19 minutes.
Taylor remains a strong play in just about all formats but the Hawks have shown a brazen willingness to yank any players who are moderately productive for the sake of the tank. That wasn't quite the case with Taylor tonight but it's still tough to stomach such a limited workload. There's little recourse but to keep him in lineups and hope the Hawks just let him go.

Isaiah Taylor picked up 15 points, nine assists and a 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Heat on Tuesday.
Taylor should be owned in all leagues as the Hawks have no other healthy point guards left. He won't dazzle you, but should be able to serve as an assists specialist and a nightly double-double threat. The Hawks may be trying to lose but someone will be out there picking up stats.

Isaiah Taylor wasn't anything special in Sunday's win over the Magic, posting nine points and five assists on 4-of-11 shooting.
Taylor could've performed better tonight but still should be picked up in all leagues with Dennis Schroder out of commission. He'll be the starting point guard from here on out and will help owners in terms of assists, steals and threes.

Isaiah Taylor got 12 points (on 5-for-18 shooting, no threes) and added seven assists and one steal in Friday’s loss to the Sixers.
The shooting wasn’t pretty but with Dennis Schroder (ankle) out the rest of the season, it’s Taylor’s job to run the point. San Schroder last week, Taylor put up top-100 value with 19.3 points, 1.0 threes, 6.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.3 turnovers. He’s pretty much a must-add for the rest of the seosn and even better in 8-cat formats.

An MRI showed a Grade 2 ankle sprain for Dennis Schroder and he will miss the rest of the season.
The writing’s been on the wall for a while now but here;s confirmation. If your leagues play next week, Isaiah Taylor is a must-add player with averages of 16.3 points, 1.0 threes, 5.7 assists and 1.0 steals over the last three games.

Dennis Schroder (ankle) is being termed doubtful for Friday's game against the Sixers.
Schroder has missed two games in a row after sustaining the injury and returning to the game against the Warriors on Friday. In those two contests, Isaiah Taylor has started and averaged 23.0 points, 5.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 triples on 14.0 shots per game. Those look like must-own numbers to us with Schroder currently sans a timetable.

Isaiah Taylor chipped in 20 points, two rebounds, eight assists and two steals in the Hawks’ 126-114 defeat at the hands of the Wolves.
This is the third time Taylor has gotten the start in the last four games and he’s been awesome in each of them. In the three starts, Taylor is averaging 21 points and five dimes on 61 percent shooting. With the Hawks embracing the tank, it’s not out of the question that they could shut down Dennis Schroder and let Taylor start the rest of the way. If that happens, he’s a must-add.
