The Atlanta Hawks were back at work on Thursday with a team practice before departing on a three-game western road trip that will take them through Utah, Portland and Los Angeles.
The Hawks got a bit of good news as Al Horford returned to practice. Horford was a late scratch from Tuesday's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers due to an upset stomach. Horford told the AJC on Thursday that he was feeling better and didn't expect to miss any additional time. The Hawks have listed him as "probable" for Friday's game against the Jazz.
Atlanta was without forward DeMarre Carroll during Thursday's practice as he sat out due to dehydration. Per the AJC, Mike Budenholzer didn't expect Carroll to miss any time due to his condition but the team did list him as "questionable" on the injury report.
The upcoming road trip will be another challenge for the Hawks as they face a three-game in four day stretch.
