The Atlanta Hawks issued a release on Tuesday stating that injured center Al Horford had successful surgery to repair his torn left pectoral muscle. He will be out for three-four months following the surgery. Since going down, Atlanta has won three straight games over the Charlotte Bobcats, Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors. They will get a much bigger test Wednesday night from the Portland Trail Blazers. Horford was averaging 12.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per game at the time of his injury.

Since Horford went down, both Josh Smith and Joe Johnson have elevated their games as the team has also been dealing with injuries to Marvin Williams and Tracy McGrady.
