The Atlanta Hawks, who are enjoying a 2-0 lead in their first round Playoff series against the Boston Celtics, announced Wednesday night that their mascot is going to be taking it easy for a few days after taking a nasty spill in Game 2.

Get better soon, Harry.
Per the AJC:
After a battery of tests and examinations by the team doctors, Harry has been placed on the injury report as “Questionable” for playoff Games 3 and 4 in Boston against the Celtics this upcoming weekend.
Harry has been limited to strict “nest rest” in hopes of having him back in the lineup for a possible Game 5 in Atlanta on Tuesday, April 26, according to the Hawks.
“This is a serious blow to our roster for these crucial games on Friday and Sunday. We are asking for all of our fans to send their thoughts and prayers for Harry’s speedy recovery,” remarked Steve Koonin, CEO of the Atlanta Hawks in a press release.
