Hawks Injury Report: Kyle Korver returned with the team on Thursday after missing the last game due to back spasms and the arrival of his first born child (welcome to the world, Kyra Elise Korver), but Korver did not participate in practice. Korver is out for tonight's game and will not travel to Memphis for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies. Devin Harris (ankle) and DeShawn Stevenson (resting) also sat out during Thursday's practice, but both are expected to play tonight.

Wizards Injury Report: John Wall (left patella), Trevor Booker (right knee), and Trevor Ariza (left calf) are all out for the Wizards tonight.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: Al Horford continues to impress, as he has recorded three consecutive double-doubles. In the past 3 games, Horford has averaged an impressive 19.0 ppg, 11.3 rpg, 5.0 apg, while shooting 53% from the field. Also, look for a big game for Josh Smith. Josh Smith has been known to be a Wizard killer in recent history, as he has averaged 22.0 ppg and 11.3 rpg in the last six meetings against them.

Wizards Player(s) to watch: Welcome back to Atlanta, Jordan Crawford. The former Hawks draft pick and player has come up big for the Wizards recently. In a surprising victory against the Miami Heat, Jordan Crawford led the team by scoring 22 points and dishing out 6 assists off the bench. Crawford is averaging 19.3 ppg, 3.3 apg, and 2.3 rpg for the past 3 games.
