The Atlanta Hawks will be without center Zaza Pachulia for the sixth straight game due to a sore Achilles. Pachulia has battled the injury for the last couple of months and was to see another doctor to get a second opinion on Wednesday.
Zaza Pachulia out tonight vs. Lakers. Seeing another doctor today about Achilles. #ATLHawks— Chris Vivlamore (@ajchawks) March 13, 2013
Larry Drew was asked about Pachulia over the weekend and indicated that there had been no change and that he was considered day-to-day. Drew also indicated that the team wouldn't rush him back. Johan Petro has seen more minutes in Pachulia's absence of late and figures to see a lot of minutes against Dwight Howard Wednesday night.
There has been no further updates on Jeff Teague's status against the Lakers. Teague suffered an ankle injury Tuesday in Atlanta's loss to Miami. He is currently listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.
