Al Horford will play in Game 2 vs. the Nets

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Late in Sunday's Game 1 matchup between the Hawks and the Nets, Al Horford dislocated his pinky finger, left the game momentarily, and returned. However, he was uncertain on Monday as to whether or not he'd play in Wednesday's Game 2 against the Nets. Now, though, there's a bit of certainty that he will play.

Horford played 34 minutes and scored 10 points with 10 rebounds. Of course, having the former All-Star on the floor will bode much better for the Hawks who already are dealing with injuries, with Paul Millsap still not at 100 percent.

Some on the Hawks, though, had no doubt that Horford was going to play in Game 2.

Maybe more wishful thinking for some, but the Nets themselves didn't seem to believe that Horford wasn't going to play. So, here we are, Horford seems ready to go. Game 2 tips off on Wednesday night at 7:00 PM.
