The Atlanta Hawks will be without power forward Paul Millsap for at least two more games.
Millsap missed Friday night’s 107-98 victory over the Atlanta Hawks because of a knee injury and he won’t play against the Chicago Bulls Tuesday or the Boston Celtics Wednesday according to Chris Vivalmore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Paul Millsap will not play against the Bulls Tuesday or the Celtics Wednesday, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.
Millsap suffered a right knee contusion in Friday’s loss to the Pistons. The injury forced the power forward to miss Saturday’s win over the Knicks. Now, the Hawks will be without their All-Star for at least two more games.
Millsap was injured after bumping knees with a Pistons player. He returned to the game but his knee swelled during the flight home. An MRI exam was negative.
Millsap was a key to the Hawks’ early season success, but they have since fallen off and are now just 26-29.
Millsap is averaging 17.6 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.
