WHO: Atlanta (28-20) at Charlotte (19-29)

Hawks Injury Report: Joe Johnson is out. Somehow that topic gets to a brief mention of trade rumors between the Hawks and Suns in Sekou's blog.

Bobcats Injury Report: Gerald Wallace is still out. Andrew Bynum is still not sorry about it. DJ Augustin knows what side his bread is buttered on and hope to return tonight against Mike Bibby. Juan Howard is out, most likely filming a McDonald's commercial.

I have a famous friend: Cue Glamor Shot.

Game Preview:

I wrote this in an answer I gave QC Sports Blog regarding a question on the keys to the game.

Can I say breaking DJ Augustin's leg? Because he has been a killer against the Hawks. With Joe out, Bibby's defensive weakness will be obvious tonight. Still, as long as a Raja Bell type does not light it up from outside, I think our wing players can carry the Hawks to a win.

I really don't like the Bobcats. Not as much as I don't like the Nets, but close. I think it stems from a roadtrip last year to Charlotte, that ended with a Hawks blow out loss and me driving on i-85 at 3 am questioning what I was doing with my life.

So there's that.

Here is to better results tonight.

Go Hawks!
