Hawks Injury Report: Devin Harris (toe) and Kyle Korver (stiff back) did not participate in practice on Tuesday, but both are expected to be ready for tonight. Josh Smith (sore knee) was a limited practice player on Tuesday, but he will play tonight.

Bobcats Injury Report: Bismack Biyomobo (leg contusion) is a game-time decision. Tyrus Thomas (calf strain) and Gerald Henderson (foot strain) are listed as "out".

Hawks Player(s) to watch: Al Horford has been such a big part of the Hawks' 5 game win streak that the NBA named him the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Horford's best game of the season came last week, on the road, against the Bobcats when he scored a season high 26 points (career high tying 13 FGM) and grabbed a season high 13 rebounds. Teague's match-up against Kemba Walker should also be spotlighted. Teague has recorded consecutive double-doubles for the first time in his career, and he will look to continue that double-double streak tonight.

Bobcats Player(s) to watch:The duo of Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions should be spotlighted. Both players are having a career year. Kemba Walker is averaging 16.6 ppg (up 4.5 from last season), and Ramon Sessions is averaging 16.4 ppg (up 5.1 from last season) off the bench. Both players are also the two top assists leaders for the team.
