Mike Dunleavy has been diagnosed with right ankle synovitis and will be out an undetermined length of time, the Hawks announced Friday night.
An MRI taken at the Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center on Feb. 28th revealed the injury and a second opinion by Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute also confirmed the diagnosis.
Dunleavy will undergo a period of rest, treatment and rehabilitation and his status will be updated as appropriate, according to the team.
The guard/forward missed his fourth straight game Friday with the injury. He was averaging 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 16.2 minutes in his 19 games with the Hawks. He was acquired from the Cavaliers in the January trade for Kyle Korver.
