The Atlanta Hawks currently sit third in the weak Eastern Conference and that's where they may have stayed for the entire season, but that thinking will have to change with the loss of starting center Al Horford to a complete tear of his right pectoral muscle. Horford is likely out for several months and could miss the rest of the 2013-14 season, so head coach Mike Budenholzer will have to promote one of the backups to the starting spot.
