* Anthony Tolliver will become the second Hawks player to become a first-time father this season. Tolliver’s wife is scheduled to be induced Thursday morning.
“I’m excited,” Tolliver said. “It’s an awesome thing to bring life into this world.”
The birth will allow Tolliver to accompany the Hawks on their upcoming six-city road trip.
Kyle Korver’s wife also delivered a child earlier this season.
