Miles Plumlee has a strained right quad and the injury will force him to miss the next few weeks, according to a team press release.
Plumlee will be reevaluated after two or three weeks, and the timeline means the Hawks will be without the center for several games to begin the year. Atlanta opens the season at Dallas next Wednesday and the franchise plays six additional games before the end of the month.
Mike Muscala should see additional minutes at the five and No. 19 overall pick John Collins, who had an impressive Summer League, could see more playing time over the next few weeks as a result of the Plumlee’s injury.
