Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha out six to eight weeks
Just after Kurt declared “Everything Atlanta touches is gold,” the Hawks have seen a run of bad news.
And now, they get some actual bad news.
INJURY UPDATE: Thabo Sefolosha has a calf strain and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.— Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) February 1, 2015
Thabo Sefolosha started Atlanta’s win over the Trail Blazers on Friday, because DeMarre Carroll was already injured. Kent Bazemore started in a 91-85 win over the 76ers on Saturday.
Obviously, relying on a backup’s backup is not ideal. Sefolosha is a solid cog in the Hawks’ machine, and they’ll miss him.
But with three All-Stars (Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague) and a fourth player who came close (Kyle Korver), Atlanta should have the depth to keep rolling.
