The Atlanta Hawks look to snap a six-game losing streak on the road and record back-to-back wins for the first time in 2013 Wednesday night when they face the Charlotte Bobcats. Atlanta is just 4-8 in January and have fallen into sixth place in the Eastern Conference Standings entering play on Wednesday. Charlotte might be as good a place as any to snap out of those road woes given that the Bobcats have lost 15 straight at home.
Atlanta got some mixed news on the injury front Tuesday. Both Devin Harris and DeShawn Stevenson returned to practice and could play against the Bobcats. Stevenson had a cortisone shot in his knee last week and looks like a good bet to be on the court Wednesday. Harris will likely go through shootaround before his status is determined. However, Zaza Pachulia has a sore Achilles tendon and was unlikely to make the trip to Charlotte. Anthony Morrow also continues to deal with a back injury and won't play against the Bobcats. Charlotte will be without center Byron Mullens who is out with an ankle injury.
Getting Harris back would certainly improve Atlanta's backcourt situation where they were down to just Jeff Teague and the newly signed Jannero Pargo as options at point guard. The Hawks have won all three meetings between the two clubs this season.
