ATLANTA — Atlanta Hawks guard Kent Bazemore will miss the remainder of the season with a bone bruise in his right knee.

Bazemore, tied for second on the team with his average of 12.9 points per game, left Sunday’s loss to Chicago in the second quarter after landing awkwardly. He hopped off the court, straight into the tunnel toward the locker room.
