Will the Atlanta Hawks ever be completely healthy?

The world may never know, especially after the Hawks announced that power forward Onyeka Okongwu will miss two weeks after sustaining a toe injury versus the Chicago Bulls on Feb. 12.

At the time, coach Quin Snyder didn't want to commit to the severity of Okongwu's injury or timeline to return.

"I don't want to speak out of turn as far as a timeline goes, but he's not going to be available for the foreseeable future," Snyder said Thursday, according to Brad Rowland of the "Locked on Hawks" podcast.

Okongwu sprained the big toe of his left foot in Atlanta's 136-126 loss to the Bulls. He finished the game with 11 points and 12 boards. On the season, he's averaging 10.2 points and 7.0 rebounds in 53 games played (eight starts).

The Hawks will once again be without a key contributor as they fight for contention in the Eastern Conference, where they sit at 10th place and on the edge of play-in territory.
