Hawks backup big man Mike Muscala (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Pacers.
Muscala missed the last 21 games and has been assigned to the Hawks G-League affiliate for rehab, but could be called up on Wednesday to play. The big man had a decent start to the year with top-170 value on 22.7 minutes per game over the first nine games. However, much has changed since then with rookie John Collins and Dewayne Dedmon (tibia) playing well as starters and Ersan Ilyasova healthy. It remains to be seen if he will still see the same workload when he returns so he is just a lottery ticket in leagues of 14-16.
