Atlanta Hawks Center Al Horford Out 3-4 Months

The Atlanta Hawks will be without their starting center for the next couple of months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears revealed on Thursday that Al Horford will miss the next 3-4 months of the season due to a torn pectoral muscle in Wednesday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers.

In his first 11 games of this shorten season, Horford’s numbers are a bit down compared to his career averages. The center is averaging 12.4 points per game, his lowest since his second year in the league. Horford’s rebounding totals are the lowest they have been in his entire career.

Nevertheless, this is still a big blow to Atlanta with the Hawks already missing Marvin Williams. A lock to be a Top Five team in the Eastern Conference before the injury, the Hawks are going to have to battle to make another postseason appearance with Horford sitting on the sidelines.

Horford’s injury means more playing time for Zaza Pachulia. A backup center for most of his career, Pachulia scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds in last night’s game against Indiana. Veteran Vladimir Radmanovic will see some more time on the court as well.
