Will Al Horford Miss Game 2?

by May 07, 2009

If his ankle doesn’t improve in a few hours, Horford could be in street clothes tonight: “Al Horford’s right ankle is a problem again for the Hawks. Horford said his ankle began bothering him in the second half of the Hawks’ Game 1 loss to Cleveland on Tuesday night. Wednesday morning, it kept him off the practice floor. It could keep him out of the lineup for Game 2 Thursday night. ‘If I had to say right now, I’d say probably not,’ Hawks coach Mike Woodson said after practice when asked if Horford was going to play. ‘He looked good before halftime. But the long break must have done something, because he was having all sorts of trouble after that.'”
