Hawks' Kent Bazemore to miss rest of season with knee injury

Sporting News — (Arthur Weinstein)

Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Kent Bazemore will miss the team's final 15 games with a knee injury, the team announced Monday.

Bazemore left Sunday's game against the Bulls in the second quarter, hopping off the court and to the locker room after landing awkwardly. An MRI revealed a bone bruise to his right knee.

In his fourth season with the Hawks, the 6-5 shooting guard averaged 12.9 points per game, tied for second on the team in scoring.

The Hawks also reported that guard Jaylen Morris sprained his ankle in the Bulls game and will be out two to four weeks. He's seen limited playing time this season.
