The shorthanded Hawks begin a three-game road trip in Charlotte.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks look to snap a three-game losing streak when they begin a three-game road trip Monday night against the Charlotte Hornets. Atlanta will be missing a pair of key players for at least the first two games of the trip. Paul Millsap has been ruled out for the next two games due to stiffness in his knee. Kent Bazemore suffered a bone bruise to his right knee in Saturday's loss to Portland. Bazemore will be out for the next 7-10 days and will then be reevaluated.
