No word about potential resting from Coach Mike Budenholzer today, but the injury report is out and confirms that point guard Jeff Teague and forward Mike Scott are out again for the game in Charlotte. Teague has his sore left ankle and Scott has his sore left toe. Pero Antic has a sore trap muscle, but is considered probable for the game tonight.
The Hawks clinched the top seed with their win over the Miami Heat, so resting players is going to be on the menu throughout the rest of the regular season as Coach Bud is going to want to have a fully healthy squad at his disposal come playoff time. But while the bumps and bruises are needed to heal, Coach still has to have his team sharp when the playoff bell rings, so that mix of rest, healing and on-court execution will be a delicate balance the rest of the way until the playoffs.
There will be more game day coverage right here @PeachtreeHoops as the game gets closer.
Let's Go Hawks!
