Hawks F Paul Millsap Ruled Out Two Games with Knee Injury

With news that fellow starter Kent Bazemore will be out 7-10 days with a bone bruise to his knee, the Atlanta Hawks received some more bad news on Sunday. 

All-Star power forward Paul Millsap, in the midst of a career-best season, has officially been ruled out for the next two games with tightness in his left knee. 

Millsap was out for the team's game against Portland on Saturday, but it was suggested that his absence was ore to do with rest. That's obviously not the case. 

The good news here for Atlanta is that this injury doesn't seem to be of the long-term variety. Millsap will sit out upcoming games against the Hornets and Wizards before hopefully returning Friday night in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Millsap is averaging a career-high 18.1 points to go with 7.7 rebounds and is shooting at a 44 percent clip from the field. With him out of action, look for Ersan Ilyasova to see an uptick in minutes from the 22.2 he's averaging since coming over from Philadelphia in a deadline trade. He's averaging 10.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 13 games with the team.
