WASHINGTON (AP) Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap is out of the starting lineup for Game 3 against the Washington Wizards because of flu-like symptoms.
Millsap was listed in Atlanta's expected starting lineup Saturday. But when a new list of starters was issued shortly before tipoff, Pero Antic replaced Millsap.
Millsap is averaging 15.9 points and 10.1 rebounds this postseason. Antic's averages are 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds.
The Hawks and Wizards were tied at a game apiece heading into Saturday.
The Wizards were without point guard John Wall in Game 3 because of an injured left hand and wrist.
