Hawks’ Ayon leaves game with shoulder injury

Oct 7, 2013, 11:12 PM EDT

The Atlanta Hawks are expecting a fair amount out of Mexico native Gustavo Ayon this season. Al Horford, Elton Brand and Paul Millsap are the names you know along their reconstructed front line, but Ayon is going to have a nice sized role with that group. At FIBA Americas this summer he played like a guy ready to take that on.

So what happened Monday night was less than ideal — Ayon went straight to the locker room with a shoulder injury after a first-quarter collision with Norris Cole of the Heat.  He did not return this game.

The Hawks gave no update tonight and will do so tomorrow, reports Chris Vivlamore at the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
