Hawks forward Josh Smith sat out Saturday's practice but is still planning on returning to the lineup against the Celtics in Game 4.

When pressed further, Smith left little doubt that he was in fact returning to the lineup regardless of how his knee feels.

So barring any unexpected trips down escalators Smith is planning on playing in Game 4. Hopefully he was telling the truth when he also indicated that every day he rested his knee the better it felt. Its do or die time for the Hawks who can ill-afford to go down 3-1 in the series.
