Al Horford out indefinitely with a tear of his right pectoral muscle


Al Horford is out indefinitely with a tear of his right pectoral muscle.  According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, the Hawks do not know if he will be out for the whole season, but know he will be out for a while.

“We will work with Al and complete our due diligence to determine the next best steps,” Hawks GM Danny Ferry stated. “Injuries are part of the challenge of an NBA season.”

In January 2012, he tore his left pectoral muscle, playing only 11 games and was not healthy for four months.

This is a huge loss for the Hawks. Horford was having one of his best  seasons statistically, ranking in the top 15 for centers in points, assists, rebounds and blocks.  To add, Horford is one of six players who leads his team in points/rebounds per game.
