Thabo Sefolosha injury: Hawks forward leaves game with calf strain

New, comments

Atlanta Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha left Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers in the first quarter due to a right calf strain.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks lost another small forward early on when Thabo Sefolosha left in the first quarter of Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers with a right calf strain.

Sefolosha's injury is problematic given that the Hawks were already without DeMarre Carroll who didn't suit up because of an Achilles injury. Atlanta is also without Shelvin Mack who has missed the last five games with a calf strain of his own.

Sefolosha won't return and he will be reevaluated after the game. Using Mack's injury as a barometer, the Hawks could be without Sefolosha for the near future.
