Description: Atlanta center Al Horford conceded that he probably won't play again this season, even if the Hawks were to make the playoffs. SOURCE: David Aldridge, TNT
Insight: Horford tore his right pectoral muscle in Thursday night's win over Cleveland. Who the Hawks start at center from here on out is anyone's guess. It will probably end up being some kind of timeshare between Pero Antic, Mike Scott, Elton Brand and maybe even Gustavo Ayon. It's a crushing blow to Atlanta's hopes of making the postseason.
