Zaza Pachulia Out for Remainder of Season

Atlanta Hawks center Zaza Pachulia will undergo surgery on his sore right Achilles and miss the rest of the season.
The Hawks said the 29-year-old Pachulia is scheduled for surgery Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C. The expected recovery time is approximately six months, meaning the Hawks will be without another valuable member of their bench heading into the playoffs. The team already lost guard Lou Williams to a season-ending knee injury.
“I think this is the right decision,” Pachulia said Saturday before the Hawks played Orlando. “I’ll be able to come back as soon as possible. It’s a partial tear … I’ll take this injury rather than a total rupture.”
