Larry Drew told the media at Friday's shootaround that Al Horford, Zaza Pahculia and Devin Harris will all be game-time decisions for tonight's game against the Boston Celtics.

Al Horford has been battling hamstring and calf issues for over a week now while Pachulia has a sore Achilles tendon. Both players sat out Wednesday's win over the Bobcats in Charlotte. Devin Harris twisted his ankle on a drive against the San Antonio Spurs last Saturday. He sat out Monday's win against the Minnesota Timberwolves and did not play against the Bobcats on Wednesday.

Obviously the Hawks don't want to go into a game against the Celtics frontline without Horford and or Pachulia. Ivan Johnson made his first career start at center against the Bobcats and responded with 15 rebounds. Josh Smith turned in a near triple-double performance against the Bobcats but the Hawks will need some depth up front against Boston.

All three players will get checked during pre game and have their status reevaluated at that time.
