The Atlanta Hawks will get back a key member of their frontcourt while the Utah Jazz will be missing one of their regulars. Zaza Pachulia will be active for the Hawks after missing Monday's game in Detroit due to a sore Achilles. Pachulia will come off the bench as Larry Drew will go with a starting lineup that consists of Jeff Teague and Devin Harris in the backcourt and Kyle Korver, Josh Smith and Al Horford up front.
Utah power forward Paul Millsap will miss his first game of the season after being ruled out with an ankle injury. Millsap sat out Tuesday's practice and did not take part in the team's shootaround on Wednesday.
