Gordon Hayward (hip) is listed as a game-time decision for their next game on Monday versus Denver.
Hayward sat out Friday's home loss to the Cavs due to what the team is calling a sore left hip flexor. Hayward will sit out practice on Saturday in hopes that the extra rest will allow him to be healthy enough to go in Monday's home game against the Nuggets. Alec Burke started in place of Hayward Friday and finished with a very respectable 16 points, five rebounds, and two assists.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
