The Magic have point guard issues with both Chris Duhon and Jameer Nelson listed as questionable. Gilbert Arenas started on Monday against the Knicks but Nelson could play against the Hawks. Atlanta looks to win the season series after taking two of the first three games between the two teams.

Joe Johnson is expected to return to the lineup and it is likely that Hawks coach Larry Drew will elect to go with the big lineup with Jason Collins drawing Dwight Howard. Ironically that move will in all likelihood move Marvin Williams to the bench just one game removed from him scoring a season high 31 points last time out against the Cavaliers.
