Hawks Injury notes: Jeff Teague and Zaza Pachulia sat out Atlanta's victory over Dallas with ankle injuries. John Jenkins has missed the last two games with a hand contusion. Their status for tonight's game is unknown at this time. Al Horford also missed the second half of the win over Detroit with a sore calf. He is expected to return to the lineup tonight.

Pistons Injury notes: Corey Maggette is not expected to play tonight due to a calf strain.

Player(s) to watch: Anthony Tolliver, Damion James and James Anderson are all fighting for a spot on the Hawks' final roster. Atlanta currently has 16 players on its roster and must cut one player before Monday's deadline to get down to at least 15. Larry Drew and company have not said how many players they will carry on the final roster. Tolliver appears to be the safest and is followed by James and then Anderson. Tonight's game will be the last opportunity for someone to impress before the final roster decisions are made.
