Larry Drew said before Monday's game that Anthony Morrow and Devin Harris were both out until at least Saturday when the team returned home from its road trip
Anthony Morrow and Devin Harris will have their statuses updated on Saturday when the Hawks return from their three-game road trip. Morrow missed his second straight game on Monday with a strained hip that he suffered in Friday's win in Cleveland. Harris missed his seventh straight contest with a foot injury.
"We won't know how long [they will be out] until we get back [to Atlanta]," Drew said. "We're still just treating both guys."
Their absence has given rookie John Jenkins the opportunity to get into Drew's rotation. Jenkins scored 10 points in just under 17 minutes of action in Saturday's win over the Indiana Pacers. He set a career-high in minutes played on Monday with 24 and also set a career mark with 15 points on 6-9 shooting. With Jeff Teague and Lou Williams starting, Jenkins was the first guard off the bench on Monday.
Harris has played in 20 games this season and made 10 starts. He is averaging 7.7 points and 2.5 assists per game in about 23 minutes per game. Morrow has appeared in 22 games and is averaging 5.5 points on 44 percent shooting.
Atlanta's road trip continues in New Orleans on Tuesday and then resumes on Friday in Detroit. The team returns home on Saturday for the first matchup of the season against the Boston Celtics.
