We are down to our last two preseason games with the season set to start next week. The Hawks trimmed their roster to 14 players yesterday by releasing Ricardo Marsh, Richard Delk, and Evan Brock. With the roster now set, the last two preseason games will probably resemble what you will see during the regular season at least as far as rotations go. With only one win during the preseason it is no secret that the Hawks could use a victory tonight to build some momentum.
On the injury front, Hawks point guard Jeff Teague practiced yesterday for the first time since injuring his ankle in an October 8th practice according to Hawks beat writer Michael Cunningham. He is expected to play tonight. Cunningham also reports that Mo Evans (knee) and Josh Powell (groin) both sat out practice yesterday. No word on their status for tonight's game.
According to the brand new ESPN True Hoop blog The Heat Index, Dwayne Wade will not play tonight, Mike Miller and Mario Chalmers are also listed as questionable. Heat guard Eddie House is expected to make his preseason debut tonight against the Hawks.
