The Atlanta Hawks will be down three starters again for Tuesday’s home game against the Phoenix Suns. Atlanta will be without the services of Paul Millsap (knee), Kent Bazemore (knee) and Thabo sefolosha (groin) according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Chris Vivlamore.

Millsap has missed five-straight games with tightness in his knee. Mike Budenholzer didn’t offer any further updates on Sunday and his status remains very much a day-to-day thing.

Kent Bazemore is recovering from a bone bruise in his knee that has kept him out for four straight games. The team is optimistic however that Bazemore might be able to return in time for Wednesday’s game in Philadelphia.

Thabo Sefolosha was a late scratch from Sunday’s lineup due to a groin strain. He will miss his second straight game. Taurean Prince made his first career NBA start in place of Sefolosha and finished with 17 points in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
