Paul Millsap PF ATL 3 days ago

While Millsap was able to play in Wednesday's game, he is still dealing with soreness in his shoulder and likely will be for awhile, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The sore shoulder will not prevent Millsap from suiting up in the postseason, but it could limit his production a bit. Millsap will have the benefit of extra rest during the playoffs, but he shot just 2-of-9 in Wednesday's game -- his first action since Apr. 4.

Millsap (shoulder) was not made available to the media Friday morning, meaning he likely will not play versus the Hornets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Millsap has missed the last two games with a right shoulder sprain, and he appears on track to miss a third contest. The team has not issued an update on his injury, but with the No. 1 seed in the East locked up, Atlanta really has not reason not to rest the All-Star forward.

Millsap will miss the next two games on Tuesday and Wednesday and be re-evaluated after that due to a right shoulder sprain, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution repots.

Expect the Hawks to continue to be cautious with Millsap for the rest of the regular season. Depending on how bad the sprain is, and how it responds to recovery, Millsap may not play enough minutes to be useful for fantasy players during the remainder of the regular season.

Millsap left Saturday's game against the Nets with a right shoulder injury and will not return.

The Hawks have the top seed in the East locked up, so they're only playing their starters to keep them in game shape for the playoffs. It's possible the Hawks are merely being cautious with Millsap, but regardless, more details on his injury should be forthcoming in the next couple days. The Hawks' next game is Tuesday against the Suns.
