Hawks Injury Report: Anthony Morrow and Devin Harris were both cleared for contact, but Morrow (hip strain) will still be unavailable for tonight while Harris (foot) is doubtful.

Timberwolves Injury Report: Chase Budinger (knee), Malcolm Lee (knee), Kevin Love (hand), and Brandon Roy (knee) are all out. Nikola Pekovic (hip) and Ricky Rubio (back) are questionable.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: Josh Smith's shot selection and decision making has been spotlighted the past couple games. The Hawks success and struggles recently have been centered around how well or how badly Josh Smith plays. Which Josh Smith shows up tonight? Also, Korver will be looking to make it 27 straight games where he makes at least one three point shot. His longest career streak is 28 straight games.

Timberwolves Player(s) to watch: The Spanish point guard has missed the past 5 games, but is expected to return and play tonight. The Ricky Rubio Show is always something you can enjoy.
