Zaza Pachulia Injury Update: Hawks C Will Miss Next Two Games

The Atlanta Hawks have once again flown under the radar and have quietly posted the fourth best record in the Eastern Conference this season. One reason for the their success has been the consistent play of Zaza Pachulia, since he stepped in for All-Star big man Al Horford. With the end of the season drawing near, Pachulia's ankle injury isn't what Larry Drew had in mind going into the playoffs.

X-rays on Pachulia's foot came back negative as he finished with eight points, four rebounds, and two assists in 16 minutes of action on Friday. With just seven games remaining, look for the Hawks to tread lightly with their big man.
