Paul Millsap injury: Hawks forward "probable" against Heat

The Atlanta Hawks have updated their injury report and list Paul Millsap as "probable" for Sunday's game in Miami.

The Atlanta Hawks received a bit of good news on the injury front on Saturday as the team updated its injury report and listed power forward Paul Millsap as "probable" for Sunday's game in Miami.

Millsap suffered the injury with 2:50 remaining in the second quarter of Thursday's game in Indiana. Millsap was initially listed as probable to return but did not return after trying to warm up at halftime. Follow up X-Rays came back negative and he should be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's game barring a setback.

Atlanta has lost two straight and four of its last five games. Millsap was named a reserve for the Eastern Conference All-Star team also on Thursday.

In other injury-related news, Walter Tavares suffered a hip contusion in Friday's D-League contest with the Austin Spurs. Tavares was held scoreless in just eight minutes of action. He is however listed as "probable" for Saturday's game against the Idaho Stampede.
