Probable Starters
Jeff Teague PG Goran Dragic
Kyle Korver SG Jared Dudley
DeShawn Stevenson SF P.J. Tucker
Josh Smith PF Luis Scola
Al Horford C Marcin Gortat

Hawks injury report: Lou Williams is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Suns injury report: Channing Frye is out for the season due to a heart condition.

Hawks player to watch: It'd be easy to go with either Al Horford or Jeff Teague after the way both have been playing but Josh Smith will provide a pretty big challenge for Luis Scola. Smith is averaging over 25 points and nine rebounds in his last four trips to Phoenix and had a monster performance in a Hawks win there last season.

Suns player to watch: I mentioned it in the preview but Goran Dragic is leading the Suns in scoring, assists and steals and has posted double-doubles in five of his last nine games. His matchup against Jeff Teague will be critical for the Suns.
