Hawks injury report: DeShawn Stevenson has missed the last two games with soreness in his knee. His status for Monday's game has not been determined. Kyle Korver sat out Sunday's practice with an ankle injury but is expected to play Monday night. Lou Williams is out for the season with a torn ACL.
Update* Kyle Korver is a game-time decision per @AJCHawks
Mavericks injury report: Chris Kamen is listed as questionable with a concussion.
Hawks player to watch: Josh Smith is leading Atlanta in scoring and is second in rebounds and assists. Yet trade rumors continue to swirl as the February trade deadline draws near. Smith has said that he remains focused but these next three games before the deadline could be a big test.
Mavericks player to watch: Shawn Marion is averaging 17.7 points over his last seven games and scored 26 points in Saturday's win over the Golden State Warriors. The small forward position is one the Hawks often have trouble matching up with and they will need to hold Marion much closer to his season average.
