Hawks Injury Report: Kyle Korver is not with the team as he continues to recover from back spasms.

Heat Injury Report: None reported

Hawks player(s) to watch: Josh Smith was just named as the Eastern Conference's player of the week after averaging 21 points and 12 rebounds while shooting 48 percent from the field. Atlanta went 3-0 that week and will need another big performance from Smith tonight if they hope to capture another difficult road win in Miami.

Heat player(s) to watch: It'd be easy to go with either LeBron James or Dwyane Wade here but Chris Bosh finished with 24 points and five boards in the earlier meeting between the two teams. While Atlanta can't afford for James or Wade to go way above their averages, Bosh has been big on both ends of the floor in recent matchups. If Atlanta can force Bosh into jump shots and keep him off the glass then they may be able to take MIami's Big 3 and make them a Big 2.
