Hawks' Al Horford Out Indefinitely
(NEW YORK) -- Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford will be out indefinitely with a torn right pectoral muscle which he suffered during the team's double-overtime win on Thursday night.
An MRI on Friday revealed the tear, but Horford remained positive.
"A bump on the road with this injury, but I will focus to get back more focus and better!" Horford tweeted on Friday.
The two-time All-Star is one of six players in the NBA leading his team in both points (18.6) and rebounds (8.4) per game.
"We will work with Al and complete our due diligence to determine the next best steps," Hawks general manger Danny Ferry said in a statement. "Injuries are part of the challenge of an NBA season."
The Hawks currently sit in third place in the Eastern Conference at 16-13.
