The Hawks got a little healthier Wednesday.
Kent Bazemore returned after missing five games with a right knee bone bruise. Bazemore will come off the bench and be under a minute restriction against the 76ers, according to Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer.
The Hawks will again be without starters Paul Millsap (left knee synovitis) and Thabo Sefolosha (right groin strain). Mike Dunleavy was also added to the injury list and will miss Wednesday’s game with right ankle soreness.
The Hawks will keep the same starting lineup of late with the three starters out with Dennis Schroder, Tim Hardaway Jr., Taurean Prince, Ersan Ilyasova and Dwight Howard.
Sefolosha was scheduled to do some on-court work prior to Wednesday’s game.
“I think he is going in a good direction,” Budenholzer said. “Tomorrow we’ll have him do some more stuff and I think he’ll do some on the court tonight. We’ll know more tomorrow after he works out.”
