Sounds like who will be sitting out tonight's regular season finale with the Dallas Mavericks. Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports that Pargo is doubtful with a stiff back that he has been battling for the last several days. While tonight's game is meaningful for the Hawks they are highly unlikely to push the issue with Pargo.can be added to the list of players
Zaza Pachulia and Al Horford will both miss tonight's game as the Hawks try to nail down home court advantage in the first round. Any combination of a Hawks win over the Mavericks or a Boston loss in Milwaukee will give Atlanta home court in the first round of the playoffs over the Celtics.
The game also has meaning for the Mavericks who currently are in seventh place in the Western Conference but can move up to sixth place with a win over the Hawks combined with a Denver loss in Minnesota.
