Hawks Injury Report: Kyle Korver returned and practiced with the team yesterday and is expected to play. Kyle Korver has missed the past 5 games due to back spasms and the birth of his first child.

Magic Injury Report: Al Harrington (knee) and Hedo Turkoglu (broken hand) are out.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: In the earlier game against the Orlando Magic this season, Al Horford was the game high scorer with 15 points. He was the only Hawks starter to shoot 50% from the field that night. In the past 6 games, Al Horford is averaging 18.3 ppg and 12.2 rpg while shooting 55% from the field. Horford will be looking for his 7th straight double-double. His career long double-double streak is 8.

Magic Player(s) to watch: Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson has seen his minutes increased the past two games, and so has his production. The rookie forward is coming off his best game of his career, when he scored a career high 19 points (9-11 shooting) and grabbed a career high 9 rebounds. In his first match-up against the Hawks, Nicholson only played 13 minutes and scored 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds.
