"After thoroughly reviewing the possible options with Zaza, we all felt this was the best decision to ensure Zaza's complete recovery so that he can be at 100 percent going forward," Hawks president and general manager Danny Ferry said. "Zaza is a professional with a strong work ethic. The Hawks will continue to be completely supportive as he tackles the return-to-play process."

Pachulia has been with the Hawks for eight seasons and became a fan favorite with his rugged play, most notably a forehead-to-forehead confrontation with Boston's Kevin Garnett in the 2008 playoffs. But the Hawks are expected to make a major overhaul no matter how far they advance in the playoffs, since they have only a handful of players under contract for next year.

Atlanta was missing two other players against the Magic. Horford missed his second straight game due to an illness, while backup guard John Jenkins was out with a concussion.
