ATLANTA (AP) _ The Atlanta Hawks activated guard Matt Maloney from the injured list and waived guard Pepe Sanchez, who was acquired in the Dikembe Mutombo trade.

Maloney has made two stints on the injured list with a strained right hand, missing a total of 23 games. When healthy, he has averaged 7.5 points and 2.9 assists per game.

Sanchez, who was obtained in the six-player deal that sent Mutombo to the Philadelphia 76ers on Feb. 22, appeared in only five games for the Hawks and did not score.
