Bazemore is dealing with a bone bruise in his right knee and will be reevaluated in 7-to-10 days, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Bazemore played through the injury during Saturday's loss to the Trail Blazers, but after undergoing an MRI on Sunday, the Hawks are going to shut him down for just over a week at the least. That rules Bazemore out for the next three games, with his first shot to return against the Nets next Sunday. With Bazemore out, Tim Hardaway should reclaim a spot in the starting five at shooting guard, where he's thrived in 18 previous starts this season with averages of 17.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists across 33.2 minutes.
