Mike Dunleavy missed his third straight game Friday night and it may be a while before he is back on the court for the Atlanta Hawks.
The team announced on Friday that Dunleavy is out indefinitely with right ankle synovitis. He underwent an MRI at the Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center on Feb. 28 which revealed the injury and a second opinion by Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute also confirmed the diagnosis.
Dunleavy will now undergo a period of rest, treatment and rehabilitation and his status will be updated as appropriate.
Dunleavy has appeared in 19 games with Atlanta and is averaging 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. He is shooting 44 percent from three-point range in a Hawks uniform. With Dunleavy out, Taurean Prince has moved back into Atlanta’s rotation.
