The Atlanta Hawks will be down a pair of starters for Tuesday's game in Brooklyn after the announced that neither Jeff Teague or Kent Bazemore made the trip.

Bazemore suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss against the Utah Jazz. X-Rays were negative and an MRI confirmed a sprain. There is no timetable for his return and his status will be updated accordingly. Teague will miss his second straight game with an ankle injury that he suffered in Friday's loss against Boston.

Atlanta lists Kyle Korver, Mike Muscala and Thabo Sefolosha as probable for Tuesday's game.

Dennis Schroder will make his second straight start in place of Teague, but Mike Budenholzer will have a decision to make in regards to replacing Bazemore. Thabo Sefolosha seems to be the most likely candidate but has yet to play more than 24 minutes in a game this season. That could mean more minutes for Justin Holiday or someone like Lamar Patterson or even Tim Hardaway Jr who has yet to appear in a game so far this season.
