Sefolosha only Hawks player out in rematch with Cavaliers


The Hawks will be back to near full strength for Sunday’s rematch with the Cavaliers.

Not that they need to be.

After a stunning 114-110 win at the Cavaliers Friday without five starters, the Hawks will only be missing Thabo Sefolosha. Sefolosha is still dealing with a right groin strain that has sidelined the starting small forward for seven games.

The Hawks injury report issued Saturday lists Kent Bazemore (right knee bone bruise), Malcolm Delaney (back spasms), Kris Humphries (neck spasm), Paul Millsap (left knee synovitis) Dennis Schroder (right mid-foot sprain) as probable.

In addition to the injuries to Bazemore, Millsap, Schroder and Sefolosha, Dwight Howard did not play for rest on the second of back-to-back games after the Hawks defeated the Celtics Thursday.

Tim Hardaway Jr. started Friday after being listed as doubtful with a left wrist sprain and a right knee contusion. He was not on the latest injury report.
