Atlanta’s Al Horford injures shoulder, does not return to game

Leave a comment

Atlanta is the third best team in the East, gut that could fall if they were to miss Al Horford for any length of time.

Horford injured his right shoulder during the first overtime against the Cavaliers. He was trying to reach around and knock down an inbounds pass only to hurt his shoulder in some fashion.

No word yet on how long the Hawks coudl be without Horford. For their sake, hopefully not long.
