Paul Millsap injury: Hawks forward to miss next 2 games with knee contusion

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap will miss the next two games due to a knee contusion.

The injuries continue to mount for the Atlanta Hawks who will be without All-Star forward Paul Millsap for at least the next two games due to a knee contusion.

Millsap suffered the injury on Friday when the banged knees with Detroit's Greg Monroe. Millsap limped to the bench but later returned to action. He did not play in Saturday's win over the Knicks.

Atlanta went with a small lineup against the Knicks that featured DeMarre Carroll at the power forward slot. If Atlanta reverts to a more traditional alignment then Mike Scott is a safe bet to replace Millsap. Scott scored a career-high 30 points in Saturday's win over the Knicks. That followed a 20 point performance against the Pistons.

Millsap has appeared in 53 games for the Hawks this season and is averaging 17.6 points and 8.3 rebounds.
