Paul Millsap out against Blazers, Pero Antic will dress but likely not play

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Hawks power forward Paul Millsap will reportedly miss his fifth consecutive game due to a knee contusion.

In an all too familiar refrain, Atlanta Hawks power forward Paul Millsap will reportedly miss his fifth consecutive game when the Hawks take on the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports that Millsap will be absent from the game, but in more positive news, both he and Pero Antic took part in a 3-on-3 scrimmage that could indicate an upcoming return. Antic will reportedly dress for the game in Portland, but he is expected to be on the sideline for the duration.

Without Millsap and Antic (again), the Hawks will reportedly turn (again, according to Vivlamore) to a starting lineup of Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Mike Scott, and Elton Brand, and with only Mike Muscala available on the bench from a size standpoint, it could be yet another "ironman" performance from Brand in the middle.
