Millsap is dealing with left knee synovitis and will miss at least the next three games, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Millsap visited with team doctors recently and was advised to undergo a non-surgical procedure, which has now been completed. Following the procedure, the Hawks went ahead and ruled him out for the next three games, which means Millsap's next opportunity to see the floor would be Sunday's matchup against the Nets. Millsap could very well miss additional time as well, but the Hawks are expected to update his status after reevaluating him this weekend. Look for Ersan Ilyasova to continue to start in his place at power forward, giving him a slightly bigger role than usual.
Millsap (knee) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Suns, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. While an MRI over the weekend came back clean, Millsap is still battling discomfort in his left knee and will miss a sixth consecutive game Tuesday. That means the Hawks will be down three regular starters, as Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) have also been ruled out. Coach Mike Budenholzer acknowledged that Bazemore could be ready to play Wednesday against the 76ers, but didn't comment on the statuses of Millsap nor Sefolosha beyond Tuesday, suggesting both could be in store to miss further time. Ersan Ilyasova will continue to hold down a starting role at power forward for as long as Millsap is out.
Millsap, who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nets, recently had an MRI on his left knee come back clean, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Millsap will be missing his fifth straight game Sunday as he continues to deal with swelling in the knee, and he could be on tap for more absences, despite the positive news from the MRI. Ersan Ilyasova will continue to start at power forward until Millsap is able to return.
Millsap (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Hawks had hoped to have Millsap back Sunday, but the All-Star will miss his fifth consecutive game while battling a sore left knee. Expect Ersan Ilyasova to make a fifth straight start in Millsap's place with the Hawks looking to snap a six-game skid.
Coach Mike Budenholzer acknowledged that it hasn't been determined if Millsap (knee), who has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bucks, will be ready to play Sunday against the Nets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Friday will mark Millsap's fourth consecutive absence due to the sore left knee, an injury he first experienced during pregame warmups back on March 18. The veteran forward didn't even travel with the Hawks to Milwaukee ahead of Friday's game, but it looks like he'll be reevaluated when the team returns to Atlanta on Saturday before a verdict is rendered on his status for Sunday. The Hawks have lost all six games that Millsap has missed this season, reflecting the immense value he brings to the team.
