Heat vs Hawks: Mike Scott upgraded to probable, likely to play

New, comment

The Hawks will likely receive an infusion of depth on Monday evening.

The Atlanta Hawks have operated without Mike Scott in the lineup for the past three games, but on Monday, that appears likely to change. The team announced that Scott, who has battled a left knee contusion, has been upgraded to probable in advance of the game against the Miami Heat at Philips Arena.

Beyond that, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports that both Scott and Tiago Splitter (who is also listed as probable) will be available to participate on Monday. In the absence of Scott, the lion's share of backup minutes at the power forward spot have gone to Mike Muscala, and it will be interesting to see what Mike Budenholzer elects to do with his rotation moving forward with both players healthy.

For the first time in quite a while, the Atlanta Hawks appear to be at full strength for Monday night, and against a quality opponent, that is certainly a positive sight.
