Al Horford Out Indefinitely
A MRI revealed on Friday that Al Horford will be out indefinitely with a torn right pectoral muscle. Horford suffered the torn muscle during the double-overtime victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it obviously came at a great cost.
General Manager of the Hawks, Danny Ferry, said, “We will work with Al and complete our due diligence to determine the next best steps. Injuries are part of the challenge of an NBA season."
Horford was having another All Star caliber year prior to his injury, so it would be ashame if Horford had to miss a long duration of time. The big man was averaging a solid 18.6 ppg and 8.4 rpg to help lead the Hawks to a 16-13 record. The Hawks are already small upfront, so they may have their hands full until Horford can return.
