Hawks injury report: None reported

Bobcats injury report: Gerald Henderson (foot) and Tyrus Thomas (calf) are out

Hawks player(s) to watch: Today's players to watch is going to center on the matchup at point guard between Jeff Teague and Kemba Walker. Teague played over 45 minutes in Wednesday's win over Washington and finished with 14 points and seven assists without a turnover despite shooting 6-18. Offensively, Teague can put pressure on Walker but how he plays defensively may be more important. It will be important for Atlanta to dictate the tempo early and that can be done by not allowing Walker to find a rhythm early. On another note, if the Bobcats do start both Mullens and Haywood in the backcourt it could provide Larry Drew with an excuse to go with the big lineup.

Bobcats player(s) to watch: Walker finished with 19 points and seven assists in the Bobcats' win over Toronto on Wednesday. He leads the team in minutes played, points per game and assists while hitting 44 percent of his shots. He has made ample progress from his rookie season and has played a huge part in Charlotte's early season success.
