Zaza Pachulia injury: Hawks center will seek 2nd opinion on Achilles, won't travel to Miami

USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks will be without center Zaza Pachulia on Tuesday as he will seek a second opinion on his sore Achilles and will not travel to Miami.

Zaza Pachulia will not travel with the Hawks to Miami and will seek a second opinion on the sore Achilles that has hampered him for nearly two months.

Pachulia has missed the last four games with the injury that has popped up sporadically since before the All-Star break. Larry Drew had no answers to give reporters asking about Pachulia on Saturday other than he was still considered as day-to-day:

"He has seen doctors," coach Larry Drew said. "Right now we are waiting to see how he progresses. It won't be anything that we rush. We'll wait on whenever he feels he can come back, or if he can come back. Right now, he's just day-to-day."

The fact that Drew did bring into question whether or not Pachulia would be able to return this season raised a few eyebrows and now that a second opinion is being sought out brings into question if Zaza is dealing with a more serious injury.
