Here is your Hawks injury report following Saturday's practice in preparation for the five-game western road trip. As I reported yesterday, Paul Millsap (right knee contusion) will not play against the Suns Sunday. He did not practice Saturday but did more light shooting following the brief workout. Millsap will travel with the team but there is no timetable for a return. The game with the Suns will be the fourth straight game miss due to the injury. "He is going to travel and we’ll continue to work with him and hopefully he progresses," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "There is no more outlook than that.” As I also reported yesterday, Pero Antic (right ankle stress fracture) had his status updated to day-to-day. He will also make the road trip. According to Budenholzer, Antic took part in 5-on-5 halfcourt scrimmaging in Friday's practice. That is a positive sign that his return could come sooner rather than later. "We’ll see how he reacts today and after we go through shootaround tomorrow," Budenholzer said. Following Saturday's practice, a coach bounced a basketball high off the court and Antic grabbed it and did a reverse dunk. He has missed 16 straight games dating back to Jan. 24.
Millsap, Antic to travel
