Larry Drew will stick with the same starting lineup that he has used for the past two games with Devin Harris in the starting lineup. Harris returned from a foot injury three games ago and played sparingly off the bench in a loss to the Cavaliers last week. He returned to the starting lineup a couple of nights later against Utah and was the catalyst in a Hawks' win over the Utah Jazz with 24 points and five assists. Harris had eight points in Saturday's loss in Washington.
Harris will be joined in the backcourt by Jeff Teague. Kyle Korver and Josh Smith will start at forward with Al Horford at center.
Hawks starters: Teague, Harris, Korver, Smith and Horford. Morrow out. #ATLHawks— Chris Vivlamore (@ajchawks) January 14, 2013
Anthony Morrow will miss his tenth straight game Monday night with a back injury. Chicago is expected to go with a lineup featuring Kirk Hinrich and Richard Hamilton at guard, Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer at forward and Joakim Noah at center. Derrick Rose is back practicing with the team but isn't expected to return to action until sometime in February.
