Paul Millsap injury: Hawks All-Star forward expected to play against Grizzlies

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Paul Millsap is expected to return from illness when the Atlanta Hawks take on the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night.

When Hawks All-Star forward Paul Millsap missed practice on Friday, there was legitimate worry about whether he'd be available when the team takes on the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night, but according a report, Millsap is expected to suit up for the game.

Millsap's return is a vital one for the Hawks, as they face-off with one of the most physical front lines in the entire NBA. Memphis relies heavily on the combination of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, and with the Hawks already short-handed without Pero Antic, Millsap will be a focal point as long as he can play at full strength.

Stay tuned for more updates as the game approaches, but as of now, it looks as if the Hawks will be at (virtually) full strength by the time tip-off arrives at 7:30 pm ET.
