Already without Lou Williams, Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow and DeShawn Stevenson, the Atlanta Hawks suffered another devastating loss when "Skyhawk," their popular mascot, injured his leg in a trampoline stunt in the first quarter of the Hawks' game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. "Shyhawk" had to be helped off the court.

The injury robs the Hawks of their third-best healthy shooting guard. In his absence, the man from the hot dog stand will need to step in and try to pull up the slack. "Skyhawk" averaged 24 high-fives, 14 waves and three trampoline dunks per game this season, his strongest in many years.
