Mike Scott's injury is reportedly more serious than was first thought.

Atlanta Hawks forward Mike Scott has a broken toe and there is no timetable yet for his return according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore.

Scott was originally diagnosed with a sprained toe. Vivlamore cites a "person familiar with the situation" in his story and says that Scott will likely see a foot specialist. The Hawks have yet to issue an update in regards to Scott's status.

Its unclear how serious the injury is but a broken to would clearly be more serious and require longer to heal than a sprain. It takes another of Atlanta's key bench weapons out of the equation. With Scott out on Friday, Pero Antic and possibly Elton Brand were expected to see an increase in playing time.

We will update this story as soon as more information becomes available.
