Al Horford and Devin Harris Out vs. Warriors; Petro Active

As reported by Chris Vivlamore of the AJC after Larry Drew's press conference, Al Horford (illness) and Devin Harris (hamstring) will both be inactive against the Warriors tonight, while Johan Petro will be activated to provide depth at center.

Larry Drew will start Zaza Pachulia (per Hawks official Twitter) tonight in Horford's place. This means the Hawks will have Teague, Stevenson, Korver, Smith, and Pachulia up against the Warriors (who have their own health issues in the frontcourt). If Mike Scott were ever to get minutes, tonight would be the night. I still wouldn't expect much of Mike barring a blowout, but Ivan's role will be expanded, and the Hawks will likely run small lineups at times when David Lee is moved to the center slot.

The Warriors will start Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, David Lee, and Festus Ezeli. While the Warriors are starting big, expect them to play Lee at the 5 and Carl Landry to play the 4 (as they did for a good portion of the game against Denver), which will allow the Hawks to counter with either Josh or Ivan at the five and rotate in Tolliver or Scott into the lineup at the four.
