UPDATE: As of the beginning of March, Al has begun Rehab on his shoulder and working on conditioning.
Atlanta Hawks Center, Al Horford, will be out for 3-4 months while he heals from a Torn Left Pectoral Muscle injury suffered on January 11th against the Indiana Pacers.
Al Horford was injured about 6 minutes into the 1st quarter of the game last night against the Pacers. Al was seen grimacing in pain on the court shortly after he was knocked down by Roy Hibbert, who blocked Al’s two layup attempts. (pictured above) Al was taken to the back where the Pacers medical staff evaluated him and it was initially said that he had a shoulder strain. MRI’s last night showed that nothing was broken. Earlier today Al was evaluated by the Hawks medical staff and they concluded that he had a Torn Left Pectoral Muscle. Al will miss the remainder of the regular season at this point, due to the shortened season 3-4 months will put us about about April/May when they season ends.
