More extended minutes for Brand?

On Tuesday, Atlanta ruled out Paul Millsap (knee) and Pero Antic (ankle) for yesterday's game against Chicago as well as tonight's contest at Boston, but they held out some hope that Gustavo Ayon (shoulder) may be able to play against the Celtics. On Wednesday, Ayon was ruled out, putting the Hawks' frontcourt in a bad spot for at least one more game.
