Atlanta Hawks forward/center Paul Millsap's (knee) status is up in the air for Tuesday's game against the Phoenix Suns, per head coach Mike Budenholzer. What It Means: Budenholzer didn't sound especially optimistic, saying "Hopefully between now and then he makes more progress and there is a chance but at this point we don’t know about Tuesday." If Millsap can't go, Ilyasova will once again draw the start and play a big role for Atlanta. Millsap is averaging a career-high 18.1 points to go with 7.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks in 34.3 minutes per game this...

Mike Dunleavy out, Kent Bazemore probable against Sixers

Mike Dunleavy out, Kent Bazemore probable against Sixers

The Hawks will likely get a starter back on Wednesday but will be without a bench option. The Atlanta Hawks are in Philadelphia on Wednesday evening to take on the 76ers and, after a much needed victory on Tuesday, the team is in search of back-to-back wins. In advance of tip-off, the Hawks released an official injury report and, while one tidbit is on the positive end, there is another that leaves Atlanta shorthanded once again in this game. Paul Millsap and Thabo Sefolosha remain on the shelf to the surprise of no one, but Kent Bazemore has been upgraded to probable as he recovers from a...

Suns vs. Hawks preview: Can Atlanta right the ship against Phoenix?

Tuesday evening brings another opportunity for the Hawks to stop the bleeding. The Atlanta Hawks are hemorrhaging at the moment and Tuesday evening provides an opportunity to right the ship. Paul Millsap, Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha are, once again, out of commission for the home team but optimism arrives in the form of a (very) beatable Phoenix Suns team. It would be fair to point out that this same Hawks group lost a 15-point decision at home to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon. In the same breath, the current collection for the Nets is probably better than the available talent...

Paul Millsap's knee exam comes back clean, still out Sunday for Hawks

An MRI on Atlanta Hawks forward/center Paul Millsap's left knee came back clean according to head coach Mike Budenholzer. What It Means: Millsap has already been ruled out for the fourth straight game on Sunday, but based on Budenholzer's comments, the All-Star forward is likely day-to-day. His injury was previously described as "tightness" in his left knee, but Budenholzer added that he has some swelling as well. He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game, and Ersan Ilyasova will continue to be the primary beneficiary in his absence. Our algorithms project...

Atlanta Hawks Weekly Wrap: Shaking Off Frustration

Atlanta Hawks Weekly Wrap: Shaking Off Frustration

The team added three losses to their streak this week, and everyone is frustrated It’s hard to imagine things going much worse for the Atlanta Hawks last week. After learning that Paul Millsap would be out for at least a few games, the team dropped games in Charlotte, Washington, and Milwaukee. These aren’t terrible teams to lose to, and playing all three on the road without Atlanta’s best player is a clear disadvantage. However, the losses are starting to pile up, and the team feels almost desperate for a win right now. If there’s a theme for how everything this week has gone,...
