ATLANTA (AP) — The struggling Atlanta Hawks got more bad news: All-Star forward Paul Millsap will miss at least two more games with a left knee injury, while guard Kent Bazemore is expected to miss at least a week with a bruised right knee.
The team updated its injury situation Sunday (Monday, PHL time) after losing its third straight game the previous night, getting blown out at home by Portland 113-97.
Millsap was a late scratch because of left knee tightness. He will definitely miss Monday night's (Tuesday, PHL time) game at Charlotte and Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) contest at Washington.
Bazemore was injured with 5.5 minutes to go. An MRI showed a bone bruise that will require treatment before a re-evaluation in 7-to-10 days. He definitely won't play against the Hornets and could miss up to six games.
