Per Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Pachulia told reporters Thursday that he has a bone chip in his foot that occurred on April 13. The original timetable for the injury was 4-6 weeks, which would set back Pachulia at least another week. The center said he will be out for Games 3, 4 and 5, and will probably miss Game 6 if the game is necessary.
The ailing Hawks are still hoping Smith will return for Game 3 despite patellar tendonitis that took him out of Game 2. Smith said he would go harder than usual during practice Thursday to gauge how his knee responds.
