The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on forward James Johnson bringing their training camp roster down to 17 players.

The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly trimmed their training camp roster to 17 by waiving forward James Johnson per a report by the AJC's Chris Vivlamore.

Johnson didn't play in Sunday's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies but saw action primarily at the small forward position throughout the preseason. The move would leave Atlanta with 17 players on their training camp roster including three non-roster invites in Eric Dawson, Royal Ivey and Cartier Martin.

Martin was signed early last week and saw his first action in Sunday's game. He struggled finishing with just two points while going 1-for-12 from the field. Neither Ivey nor Dawson played on Sunday. The Hawks have not confirmed any roster moves as of yet.

Update - The Hawks have confirmed the AJC's report via team press release.

Here is a look at the Atlanta roster as it stands minus Johnson:

1. Jeff Teague
2. Kyle Korver
3. DeMarre Carroll
4. Paul Millsap
5. Al Horford
6. Dennis Schroder
7. John Jenkins
8. Mike Scott
9. Pero Antic
10. Elton Brand
11. Lou Williams
12. Gustavo Ayon
13. Jared Cunningham
14. Shelvin Mack
15. Eric Dawson
16. Royal Ivey
17. Cartier Martin
