The Atlanta Hawks are coming off of a 102-94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night but could be without the services of some key players for Saturday's matchup against the Indiana Pacers.
Devin Harris didn't travel with the club to Cleveland but remains questionable with a foot injury. Ivan Johnson traveled with the team to Cleveland but remained at the team hotel with a stomach bug during the game. Both Josh Smith and Anthony Morrow left the game with muscle strains. Neither injury was deemed serious but we likely won't find out anything about their status until closer to tipoff.
One player the Hawks will get back tonight is DeShawn Stevenson who sat out the first game of Friday's back-to-back and will play on Saturday.
Indiana comes in with a season-high four-game winning streak but will have to exorcise some demons in Atlanta if they hope to extend it. The Pacers have lost 10 consecutive trips to Philips Arena. The Hawks are on a three-game winning streak and are two games back of Miami in the Eastern Conference standings.
Atlanta used an 18-0 fourth quarter run to defeat the Pacers 89-86 in the only previous meeting this season between the two clubs.
