ATLANTA (AFP) - Atlanta Hawks scoring leader Al Horford will be sidelined indefinitely after suffering a torn right pectoral muscle, the National Basketball Association club announced on Friday.

Horford, who has averaged 18.6 points as well as 8.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 29 games this season, suffered the injury during the Hawks' double-overtime victory on Thursday at Cleveland.

"We will work with Al and complete our due diligence to determine the next best steps for him," Hawks president of basketball operations and general manager Danny Ferry said.

"Injuries are part of the challenge of an NBA season."
