Shelvin Mack's return to the court is getting closer but it won't happen Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.

Shelvin Mack will be inactive again Wednesday night for the Atlanta Hawks when they face the Washington Wizards. Wednesday's game will be the ninth straight game that Mack has missed due to strained calf.

Mack suffered the injury in a win over the Chicago Bulls back on January 17. The Hawks upgraded Mack's status on Tuesday to questionable before ruling him out on Wednesday. His injury situation appears to be improving but he's not all the way back yet.

DeMarre Carroll told the AJC on Wednesday that he is good to go against the Wizards and expects to play his normal minutes. Carroll returned from a two-game absence due to a strained Achilles in Monday's loss in New Orleans. The Hawks are already without Thabo Sefolosha who will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a calf injury.
