Hawks granted Disabled Player Exception

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA has granted a Disabled Player Exception for the Atlanta Hawks in the amount of $5.25 million.

The Atlanta Hawks have been granted a Disabled Player Exception worth $5.25 million per a report by Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Hawks received the exception due to the loss of Al Horford for the remainder of the season.

The exception can be used in trades or for signing a free agent. The exception will expire on March 10. This would give the team a little more wiggle room with the salary cap to sign a free agent or to pursue a trade due to the loss of Horford.

The Brooklyn Nets were granted an identical exception earlier this season after losing Brook Lopez. The report also states that the Milwaukee Bucks also received an exception worth $1.75 million due to the loss of Carlos Delfino.
