The Atlanta Hwks will be without the services of Mike Muscala for the rest of the afternoon after he suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Muscala suffered the injury while defending a drive by Milwaukee’s Michael Beasley. Muscala appeared to have stepped on another player’s foot and rolled his ankle. Beasley was whistled for an offensive foul on the play.
Muscala was down on the floor for several minutes but eventually limped his way back to the bench area and headed straight to the locker room. Kris Humphries replaced him in the Atlanta lineup.
