Zaza Pachulia Injury: Hawks Center Hopes To Return This Season

While the Hawks still have not confirmed anything regarding Zaza Pachulia's injury, he made a couple of comments to the AJC's Michael Cunningham that indicate that he could be dealing with more than a simple foot sprain.

An earlier report on Monday indicated that Pachulia could miss the remainder of the regular season. Atlanta may opt not to rush Pachulia back given their lack of quality depth at the center position. Jason Collins has started the last two games in Pachulia's absence and Ivan Johnson has played well off the bench. Still Johnson is an undersized option at the pivot and could be over matched against larger opponents.
