Game Thread: Hawks missing three vs. 76ers

The Hawks will be without three players, including starting small forward DeMarre Carroll, for tonight's game against the 76ers.

Carroll will miss his second straight game due to a left Achilles strain suffered in Wednesday's win over the Nets. He missed Friday's win over the Trail Blazers.

Thabo Sefolosha started in place of Carroll against the Trail Blazers but suffered a right calf strain 2:21 into the game. He did not return and has been ruled out for tonight's game.

In addition, Shelvin Mack will miss his seventh straight game with a left calf strain.

The likely candidate to start in place of Carroll is Kent Bazemore, who played a career-high 40 minutes against the Trail Blazers.
