For the second consecutive game a key Hawks player will be affected by a stomach bug. Al Horford is a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors. If Horford can't go then Zaza Pachulia is the likely starter at center.
Stomach illness hits Hawks again. Al Horford a game-time decision, Devin Harris out tonight vs. Warriors. #ATLHawks— Chris Vivlamore (@ajchawks) November 14, 2012
Both Josh Smith and Lou Williams were game-time decisions on Monday in Portland with a similar illness. Both ended up playing with Smith scoring a team-high 19 points. Williams contributed 11 points off the bench in just over 18 minutes.
Devin Harris won't play tonight after straining his hamstring against the Trail Blazers. Without Harris, Williams becomes the back up point guard behind starter Jeff Teague. Harris absence may also open the door for Anthony Morrow to get into tonight's rotation.
The Hawks have one game remaining on this four-game trip which ends Friday in Sacramento.
