The Atlanta Hawks will be without backup center Zaza Pachulia for Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons after he was a late scratch due to a sore achilles.

Larry Drew has not announced a starting lineup for Monday's game yet but the newly acquired Jeremy Tyler will be active for the first time with the Hawks. Atlanta is catching somewhat of a break that Pistons rookie Andre Drummond is also injured and will not play in Monday's game.

Pachulia has battled the injury off and on since before the All-Star break. He scored just three points but grabbed 11 rebounds, including a franchise record seven offensive rebounds in the second quarter, in Saturday's win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Pachulia has played in 49 games this season and is averaging 6.0 points and 6.6 rebounds in 22 minutes of playing time.
