Hawks injury report: None reported

Wizards injury report: John Wall is out with a knee injury while Trevor Booker (knee) and Nene (foot) are questionable. It looked like Nene might make his debut tonight against the Hawks but now it looks much more doubtful. Booker injured his knee on Friday against the Pacers and is headed for an MRI.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: Josh Smith has struggled this season thus far but has averaged 21.4 points and 11.2 rebounds over his last five matchups against the Wizards. Smith is due to breakout and the winless Wizards seem like a good opponent for that to happen against.

Wizards player(s) to watch: Jordan Crawford is averaging a team best 12.2 points per game for the Wizards on 39 percent shooting from the field. He started and scored 11 points Monday against the Pacers on 2-12 shooting. He figures to be back in the starting lineup tonight against the Hawks. Crawford is the definition of a streak shooter but you can imagine that he'd love to have a big game against his former team and to help the Wizards get their first win.
