Tracy McGrady was noticeably absent from the Hawks lineup down the stretch in their 76-74 loss to the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night. McGrady was limited to just two points in just over 15 minutes of action due to a bone bruise on his left knee.

McGrady has played well off the bench this season and has added a veteran presence at crunch time when paired with the Hawks starting unit. McGrady scored 16 points in Monday's victory over the Miami Heat and the Hawks will be hard pressed to replace McGrady if he is sidelined for any length of time.

Atlanta is off on Wednesday but then begins a stretch of three games in three days starting on Thursday with a rematch with the Heat. Atlanta then travels to Charlotte on Friday before returning home on Saturday to take on the Bulls.
