Paul Millsap will miss at least two games with a right shoulder injury. The Atlanta Hawks can live with that diagnosis, as long as their All-Star forward is healthy for the playoffs. X-rays were negative, the Hawks announced Monday, with an MRI showing that Millsap sprained and bruised his shoulder against Brooklyn this past weekend. Aiken Standard

Millsap suffered a right shoulder contusion and mild sprain during Saturday’s game against the Nets. He will miss the next two games – versus the Suns Tuesday and at the Nets Wednesday – and will be re-evaluated. X-rays were negative and an MRI exam revealed the sprain. “When someone has an MRI or gets banged like that you are worried something more might be revealed,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “We are pleased.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
