According to the sports director for WSB in Atlanta Zach Klein, Al Horford's torn pectoral might put him on the sidelines for the rest of the season. The report was confirmed when Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears tweeted that Horford would miss at least three to four months. The Hawks last game is April 26, so at best, he might be able to get a week or two of play before the postseason. Horford's 12.4 points, 7 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game have helped Atlanta to a strong 7-4, during which they crushed the league-leading Chicago Bulls. Zaza Pachulia will likely start in his place.
