The Philadelphia 76ers will be without the services of Spencer Hawes for the second consecutive game in tonight's matchup against the red-hot Atlanta Hawks. Just like the Sixers, the Hawks will be without their starting center Al Horford, who will miss about three or four months this season after undergoing successful surgery on his torn left pectoral muscle. 

Hawes is dealing with an Achilles injury that has kept him out of the past two games. Prior to his current injury, Hawes dealt with back troubles that nagged him throughout a few games early on in the schedule and forced him to miss the Sixers trip to Madison Square Garden. 

Hawes' absence this year has clearly affected the Sixers this season. The Sixers only have four losses this season, with two of them coming in the games Hawes was unable to play in.
