Hawks' Paul Millsap: Out next two games

Millsap (knee) has been ruled out for both Monday's game against the Hornets and Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Millsap was held out of Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers because of soreness in his knee and with the playoffs less than a month away, the Hawks want to avoid aggravating the injury further, so Millsap will sit out at least the next two games. That would leave a potential return for Friday's tilt against the Bucks, although he could be held out even longer depending on whether or not the tightness subsides. With Millsap out the next two games, we should see more Ersan Ilyasova and Mike Muscala at power forward.
