Atlanta Hawks Headlines is back with a selection of articles that focus on Atlanta’s recent struggles, their injury issues, and much more.
The last thing the Atlanta Hawks needed right now was an injury to their best player, but that’s what they are currently dealing with. Both Paul Millsap and Kent Bazemore will be out for the next two games (at least) due to injury.
This news comes at the worst possible time. The Hawks have lost three games in a row and find themselves in a bit of a predicament. If the losses keep piling up, the team could slip out of the playoff picture. That’s not likely, but it’s possible. Last month that would have been unthinkable. The Hawks appeared to be on a path towards a top four seed, rather than the lottery.
Due to the recent news, today’s assortment of Hawks goodies do not emit a positive vibe. Things are slightly melancholy around these parts. That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Let’s fight through the disappointment so we can stay informed on all things Atlanta Hawks.
Here are today’s links.

Atlanta Hawks Game Preview: March 20th at Charlotte Hornets
The time machine also features our preview of Atlanta’s game against the Charlotte Hornets. Our preview mostly focuses on what has happened to Charlotte this season. They started the season as a playoff hopeful, but quickly faded during the middle of the season. Kemba Walker’s scoring exploits have not been enough to pull them through. Serious regression from Nicolas Batum and Marvin Williams, along with some hits to their overall depth, have caused them to become a lottery team. Still, they’re well coached and feisty. We predicted that they would beat the injury riddled Hawks. Were we correct?
