Hawks vs. Rockets: Josh Smith returns to starting lineup

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Josh Smith will return to the Hawks's starting lineup tonight as Atlanta tries to extend their four-game winning streak against the Houston Rockets.

The Atlanta Hawks will get Josh Smith back in their starting lineup in time for Monday's matchup against the Houston Rockets. Smith sat out Saturday's win over Indiana with a strained hip flexor. Smith will start alongside Jeff Teague, Lou Williams, Kyle Korver and Al Horford.

Smith originally suffered the injury in Friday's win at Cleveland. He sat out the fourth quarter against the Cavaliers and wasn't in uniform Saturday against the Pacers. Zaza Pachulia got the start in Smith's place Saturday and had a big game with 17 points and 14 rebounds while matching up against Roy Hibbert.

Atlanta is without the services of Anthony Morrow and Devin Harris who remained in Atlanta nursing injuries. Morrow suffered a hip strain against the Cavaliers on Friday night while Harris has missed the last six games with a foot injury.
