The Atlanta Hawks updated their injury report on Monday and listed Thabo Sefolosha as out for Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat. Sefolosha is still not fully 100 percent and the team has opted to take things slowly in regards to his health. Tuesday's game begins a stretch of four games in five nights for Atlanta.

Mike Muscala is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game as he continues to recover from an ankle injury that he suffered in the opener against the Detroit Pistons. Muscala was back in uniform for Sunday's win in Charlotte but did not make an appearance in the game. Mike Scott has seen the bulk of minutes behind Paul Millsap with Muscala sidelined.

Atlanta lists Kyle Korver and Jeff Teague as probable against the Heat. Korver is still recovering from offseason ankle surgery and could be a candidate to sit out the second game of the back-to-back on Wednesday. Teague suffered what the Hawks are calling a finger sprain during Sunday's win in Charlotte. Teague played 32 minutes against the Hornets and finished with 18 points but went in for X-Rays following the game. Those came back negative and he appears to be good to go for what will be a busy week for the Hawks.
