Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer would not say whether Paul Millsap would return to the starting lineup for Thursday’s game against the Celtics. Millsap is listed as probable on the team’s injury report Wednesday after missing eight consecutive games with synovitis in his left knee. Millsap returned in Sunday’s loss to the Nets and played 26 minutes off the bench.
The team’s injury report also lists Kent Bazemore (right-knee bone bruise), Malcolm Delaney (back spasms) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (right-knee contusion) as probable.
Bazemore has come off the bench in his three games since returning from injury. Delaney missed the past two games. Budenholzer said the reserve point guard participated in much of practice Wednesday, but was still limited. Hardaway briefly left the game against the Nets with the injury.
Thabo Sefolosha (right groin strain) is listed as out and will miss his sixth consecutive game.
