Injury report: Hawks banged up in Washington

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Per report, the Atlanta Hawks will be without Kyle Korver on Saturday night in Washington DC, and the status of Pero Antic and DeMarre Carroll remains to be determined.

It was a busy shootaround for the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday morning, as they have multiple injuries to update. In that vein, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution brings a bit of clarity to the situation revolving around Kyle Korver and Pero Antic, and even sheds light on a new addition to the injury report.

It was expected that Korver would be unable after he didn't initially travel to Washington, but the note that Pero Antic will very likely play is exceedingly positive. Unfortunately, that return could be mitigated by a significant absence.

DeMarre Carroll has been added to the injury list via illness, and this would be a massive loss. With Korver out, the Hawks are already short-handed on the perimeter (and Atlanta is 1-8 without Kyle this season), and Carroll provides the team's best defender on the wing, as well as with some much-needed athleticism and length.

It remains to be seen who will be available when tip-off occurs against the Wizards, but if Korver is joined by Carroll on the sidelines, it could be trouble.
