Atlanta Hawks C Dedmon out 3-6 weeks with injured left leg

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon is expected to miss three-to-six weeks with an injured left leg.

The team announced Wednesday that Dedmon underwent an MRI that revealed a tibia stress reaction.

Dedmon has played all 20 games in his first season with the rebuilding Hawks, averaging 11.1 points and a team-high 7.8 rebounds.

The injury isn't believed to be related to a specific incident. Dedmon underwent the MRI after complaining recently of shin pain.

Atlanta (4-16) hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night.
