The Atlanta Hawks will be without forward Mike Scott on Friday due to a strained toe.

The Atlanta Hawks will be without one of their key weapons off the bench Friday night as Mike Scott will miss the game due to a strained toe. Scott was listed as doubtful on Thursday's injury report but was declared out on Friday afternoon.

With Scott out, Mike Budenholzer will have to juggle his frontcourt rotation a bit possibly opening up some playing time for Mike Muscala or even Elton Brand. Scott has appeared in 60 games this season and is averaging 7.5 points and 2.7 rebounds in just under 16 minutes of playing time a night.

The Hawks did get a bit of good news in regards to guards Dennis Schroder and John Jenkins. Schroder is dealing with a sore ankle while Jenkins has a sore left wrist. Both players are listed as probable and Budenholzer told the AJC earlier today that he expects both to be available for Friday's game against the Suns.

Phoenix guard Brandon Knight is battling an ankle injury and has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.
