Al Horford out vs. Blazers
ATLANTA -- Hawks center Al Horford is sidelined with a sore left ankle and will not play Saturday night against Portland.
Horford played 40 minutes but finished with just six points and no offensive rebounds in Atlanta's 94-76 loss Friday at Chicago.
Hawks coach Larry Drew said the two-time All-Star rolled his ankle during the game. Horford, a former No. 3 overall pick, is averaging 15.9 points and 9.8 rebounds. He is listed as day-to-day.
Atlanta has lost four straight and five of six.
Zaza Pachulia will make his fourth start of the season in Horford's place.
