Hawks veteran guard Kent Bazemore will miss “several weeks” with a bone bruise in his right knee, according to a person familiar with the prognosis. Bazemore suffered the injury on Sunday during a game against the Bulls at Philips Arena. The injury means that Bazemore is likely to miss the remainder of the season. The Hawks (20-47) were officially eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday and have 15 games remaining. Their final game is on April 10.
Even wing Kent Bazemore is not getting much love on the market, despite having the most productive season of his career. Bazemore is a good perimeter defender averaging 13.2 points and making 38.9 percent of his 3s, a career high. But he is due $37 million over the next two seasons (the second is a player option, and he is expected to opt in). The Pelicans have had interest in Bazemore, but the Hawks likely would have to take back Solomon Hill ($26 million over the next two years) and would not be able to get a first-rounder out from New Orleans until 2020. “There’s a dozen teams who could use [Bazemore], but no one wants to pay him that,” one exec said.
