Al Horford injury: Hawks' center out against Bobcats

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Al Horford did not travel with the Atlanta Hawks to Charlotte and will miss Wednesday's game against the Bobcats.

Al Horford sat out practice on Tuesday with a sore hamstring and calf and will not play in Wednesday night's game against the Bobcats. Horford did not travel with the team to Charlotte and will remain in Atlanta with hopes of returning to the court in time for Friday's game against the Celtics.

The Hawks are also without Zaza Pachulia and Anthony Morrow but will get DeShawn Stevenson and Devin Harris back in the lineup. With both Pachulia and Horford out, the Hawks will have to go with a new starting lineup that could include Ivan Johnson.

No matter who ends up starting, there will be plenty of minutes available for Mike Scott, Anthony Tolliver and likely Johan Petro. The situation is similar to the one that the Hawks faced on Monday when Jeff Teague and Jannero Pargo were the only options at point guard. Petro is the only true center that will be available for tonight's game.
