The injuries continue to pile up for the Atlanta Hawks. Al Horford left Sunday's Game 1 early in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a dislocated finger.

Horford suffered the injury while battling for a rebound with Brooklyn center Brook Lopez. He immediately headed to the bench area and was then ushered to the back by trainer Wally Blase.

Atlanta is leading the Nets early in the fourth quarter but will miss Horford's contributions if he is unable to return to the game. Horford had logged a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds in 28 minutes. He was 5-10 from the floor.

Here is a look at Horford with trainer Wally Blase courtesy of SI.com's DeAntae Prince.

Update No. 3
