ATLANTA Last year the Atlanta Hawks went into the NBA playoffs minus All-Star center Al Horford for the first few games.

Were not as healthy as I want to be, coach Larry Drew said. We got some guys nicked up,...

The Pacers were the number two seed for a period of time, but the Knicks’ late winning streak pushed them down to the third seed. The Hawks’ season has gone as expected. They have had their moments but they can really struggle at times. Let’s take a look at this...
Center Al Horford is sitting out the Atlanta Hawks' final home game of the regular season because of soreness in his chest.
