The Atlanta Hawks finally received some good news on the injury front as both Marvin Williams and Ivan Johnson are expected to return to action Friday night against the New Jersey Nets. However, Vladimir Radmanovic has been ruled out already for Friday.
Having two more players available to come off the bench will be a much needed shot in the arm for a Hawks team that has grown accustomed to playing shorthanded this season. Marvin Williams hurt his hip against Denver back on March 13 and has missed the Hawks last five games. Ivan Johnson returned home to San Antonio on a personal matter and missed Wednesday's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
