Atlanta Hawks center Zaza Pachulia told the AJC that he has a chipped bone in his foot and the original time table for his return was 4-6 weeks. That would make him very unlikely to play in Games 4 or 5 and probably not Game 6 should the series go that far.

There have been very few updates regarding the status of Pachulia and the injury was originally reported as a strained ligament in his foot. Pachulia told Michael Cunningham that he suffered the chipped bone along with a sprained ankle. Pachulia has not been cleared by his doctor to resume workouts thus would seem to be a long shot to appear in any of the games during this series.
