• Taurean Prince
    F, Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince (sprained ankle) will not play on Tuesday against the Hornets.

    Prince wanted to repeat last season's feat of playing in all 82 games but that won't happen now. Hopefully this doesn't sideline him for too long, though the Hawks have no incentive to push one of their best young players. In his absence we'll probably see a little bit more from a number of players — Omari Spellman, Kevin Huerter, DeAndre' Bembry, Alex Poythress and Vince Carter among them. There's no real move to make here just yet but we'll see what the Hawks do with his empty minutes tonight and re-evaluate.
