Paul Millsap PF ATL 12 Days
Paul Millsap's bruised knee will keep him out of at least the Hawks' next two games.
He won't play Tuesday or Wednesday and this leaves him with a maximum of one game during the week ahead, assuming he can return to action in Phoenix on Sunday. The Hawks may stick with a small lineup featuring DeMarre Carroll at PF, but either way owners should give Mike Scott a long look -- he's coming off a 30-point, eight-rebound game in 30 minutes off the bench and should see similar run for at least a couple more games.

Paul Millsap (bruised knee) did not attend Monday's practice.
This discouraging update leaves Millsap iffy to play in Tuesday's home game and Wednesday's road game in Boston, though we'll pass along another update after the Hawks' shootaround. Mike Scott is coming off a career-best game with 30 points and 11 rebounds and he'd be worth a spot-start if Millsap is sidelined once again.

Paul Millsap will not play against the Knicks on Saturday due to a right knee contusion.
He injured his knee in the third quarter of Friday's game and was able to play through it without incident. Millsap must be dealing with some pain or swelling and it's unclear if he'll need any further evaluation. Mike Scott is the favorite to start and is coming off a season-high 20 points on Friday. Millsap should be considered questionable for Tuesday.

Paul Millsap played 35 minutes against the Pistons on Friday with 23 points, eight boards, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.
He banged knees with Greg Monroe and had to go to the bench for about a minute, but came back on the court and immediately hit back-to-back treys on the next two possessions. Millsap is a stud and he just needs to get his field goal shooting issue rectified to become a true fantasy stud.

Paul Millsap got off to a slow start on Wednesday after struggling on Tuesday, but finished up strong with 21 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer in a loss to the Wizards.
The Hawks have now lost seven straight games and it looks like Millsap is going to have to put the team on his back if they're going to start winning again. He was awful in the first half tonight, but redeemed himself after the break. He's probably tired after carrying the Hawks all season, but is also healthy.

Coming off his first All-Star Game appearance, Millsap just couldn't get going against a tough Pacers' defense tonight, and he wasn't the only Hawk with that problem. It feels like he's either putting up a monster line or a dud this season, but more often than not, he's the man for the Hawks.

Paul Millsap hit 6-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, but had just two rebounds and one block in Tuesday's loss.
It seems like Millsap is either posting a monster line or struggling from game to game, but he's still healthy and is having a great season. And despite the lack of boards and general struggles against Taj Gibson's defense, he still salvaged a decent line thanks to the 3-pointers.
