Hawks Injury Report: Anthony Morrow (back) has missed the last two games and is a game time decision. DeShawn Stevenson, who normally sits one game in a back-to-back will still most likely play despite playing yesterday against the Wizards. Ivan Johnson received a cut on his right hand that required four stitches yesterday, but it shouldn't affect his status for the game as he is expected to play. Devin Harris left the game early yesterday with a sore foot and is questionable coming into this game.

Thunder Injury Report: Perry Jones (ankle sprain) is day-to-day.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: In the earlier matchup against the Thunder this season, Al Horford carried the Josh Smith-less Hawks into a win by putting up 23 points, 12 rebounds, and shooting 11-19 from the field.

Thunder Player(s) to watch: One of the biggest reasons to the Thunder's loss against the Hawks earlier in the season was the play of Russell Westbrook. Westbrook had one of his worst shooting games of the season, when he only scored 14 points in 5-18 shooting. Kevin Martin countered Westbrook's performance with one of his best, when Martin scored 28 points in 8-11 shooting. Oh yeah, I'm not sure if you've heard, but the Thunder also have this player named Kevin Durant...
