The Atlanta Hawks will, once again, be without a key piece to their success, as All-Star power forward Paul Millsap will miss the next two games as a result of a shoulder injury.

Millsap has already missed two games after exiting a 32-point win over the Nets early after injuring his shoulder, and the team is rightly playing it close to the vest with his return. Atlanta is notoriously stingy with injury information, but releasing a "definite" two-game timeline opens the door for Millsap to potentially return for a home game against the New York Knicks on Monday.
The Hawks host the Charlotte Hornets on Friday for a game marked by the raising of the Southeast Division banner, and Mike Muscala appears to be in line for additional playing time for the third straight game. Stay tuned for more information on Millsap as it is available, but the most important thing is that he is ready to fire on all cylinders when the playoffs arrive.
