Pero Antic will miss Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies due to back spasms. Gustavo Ayon will start at center.

The Atlanta Hawks will be without center Pero Antic for Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies due to back spasms.

Antic has started the last five games for the Hawks at center. He tied his season high in points with 16 in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

Gustavo Ayon will get the start in place of Antic leaving Elton Brand in a reserve role. Ayon was slowed by an ankle injury in December and last played in Atlanta's win over Boston on December 31. He was a healthy DNP-CD for the last five games.
