Budenholzer: Al Horford has gone through everything without incident after dislocating his pinky. Doesn’t expect any further issues.

Kris Willis

Al Horford with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists

Kris Willis

Nice pass from Al Horford, even better cut by Kent Bazemore

Devin Kharpertian

That pass Al Horford just made to Bazemore is the biggest difference between him & Brook Lopez. Lopez doesn’t see those angles.

Rod Boone

End of first Q: #Hawks 29, #Nets 24: Al Horford has 8 points and 4 boards. Joe has 7 points.

Tim Bontemps

9-2 run for the Nets to end the first makes it 29-24. Hawks killing the Nets on the glass, Millsap and Horford both look much better.

Kevin Arnovitz

The @Jaryd Wilson haven't given up a single offensive rebound. Millsap and Horford shooting well and very active. Bellwethers lookin' good.

Chris Vivlamore

There are ZERO issues with the injuries to Horford and Millsap. #ATLHawks

Kevin Arnovitz

Al Horford's first mid-range jumper -- tape job and all -- silky smooth. Good sign for the Hawks. ATL 9, BKN 2 after 100 seconds.

Lenn Robbins

Two bad signs for #Nets, @Al Horford he of the dislocated pinky, hits a jumper. #Nets commit a turnovers and its 9-2 #Hawks

Lopez hanging in the paint, daring Horford to shoot outside. Horford hits his first one.

Al Horford wearing a splint on his pinky connected to his ring finger, but with a spacer in between fingers presumably to mimic natural feel

Lenn Robbins

Coach Budenholzer opened presser by asking for no ?'s about sale of #Hawls He also was asked about @Al Horford pinky. Distractions? #Nets

Lang Greene

Watched Al Horford get up shots pre-game. Clearly trying to adjust to tape on injured pinky. True test will come when a Nets player bangs it

Mike Mazzeo

Bud on Al Horford (finger): I definitely hope it goes in when he shoots it. (Laughs)

Interested to see how @Al Horford plays thru that dislocated pinky. That happened to me, affects entire hand. My pickup game skills suffered

Chris Vivlamore

Paul Millsap on injuries: "Al (Horford) came back and played. He’s a tough guy. I’m a tough guy." #ATLHawks

Anthony Puccio

As @Nets Daily noted, Horford questioning his status for a Wednesday game may imply that it's a serious injury. Was treated all last night.

Anthony Puccio

The Hawks already shaking injuries with Sefolosha out & Millsap not at 100%. Now Horford is questionable for Game 2 with a pinky injury.

Sekou Smith

Al Horford said there is still "some question" as to whether or not he will play in Game 2 Wednesday vs the Nets. Treatment galore.

David Aldridge

Al Horford says there's "still some question" about his availability for G2 Wednesday against the Nets. Treated all night, not much sleep.
