Hawks coach Larry Drew still hasn't revealed what players will be in the Hawks starting lineup for Sunday's preseason opener against the Miami Heat. However, he may have revealed a sneak peak during practice on Saturday according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore:

The white group consisted of Jeff Teague (PG), DeShawn Stevenson (SG), Kyle Korver (SF), Josh Smith (PF) and Al Horford (C). While Anthony Toliver also wore white, the first five were on the floor as coaches went over game-planning for the Heat. Drew would say that in addition to returning starters Teague, Smith and Horford that Korver and Stevenson will "play a big role for us this season."

Now Stevenson was held out of the contact portion of practice a couple of times earlier this week but the injury wasn't deemed as serious. Devin Harris and Zaza Pachulia have also missed the contact portions of practice this week and may not dress for Sunday's game.

Drew also indicated that he may change up his starting lineup for each preseason game as he tests out different combinations. Harris and Pachulia could both find themselves in the starting lineup at some point as well as players like Anthony Morrow and Lou Williams.
