Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Atlanta Hawks said Thursday that Pero Antic has a stress fracture in his right ankle and will be out approximately two-to-four weeks.

The 6-foot-11 Antic suffered a mild right ankle sprain in Atlanta's loss to Brooklyn in London on Jan. 16 and played in the next two games after X-rays taken following the game were negative.

An MRI on Thursday revealed the stress fracture. Antic, who is averaging 5.8 points and 3.4 rebounds this season, will wear a protective walking boot.
