An MRI done Sunday revealed the extent of the injury. Capela told the team he was experiencing discomfort during the Hawks' 141-134 overtime win over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday. Capela will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days, the Hawks said.
The 29-year-old has played in 47 games this season — all starts — and is averaging 11.5 points and 10.6 rebounds. The last seven games have helped those totals, as Capela has recorded a double-double in six of those contests.
The Hawks (22-27) are currently on a four-game winning streak and have the 10th-best record in the Eastern Conference.
