The Atlanta Hawks will be without starting center Zaza Pachulia for at least the next two games with a foot injury. Pachulia suffered the injury in the first half of Atlanta's win over the Orlando Magic on Friday.

X-Rays were negative on Pachulia's foot but the Hawks will play things safe with him down the stretch. Atlanta was also without Ivan Johnson who was sent home for conduct detrimental on Friday but he is expected to rejoin the team on Saturday.

Pachulia will miss both Sunday's and Monday's matchups against the Toronto Raptors and will be reevaluated after that. Pachulia has started 44 of Atlanta's 58 games this season and is averaging 7.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. He has helped pick up the slack after Al Horford was lost for the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
