Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer will go with Cartier Martin in his starting lineup to replace Kyle Korver who is out with a rib contusion. Budenholzer opted to go with Martin to get a bigger body in the starting lineup against the Rockets.

I speculated earlier that injuries to Korver and Shelvin Mack could provide an opportunity for John Jenkins and Dennis Schröder to make their case for more playing time. Budenholzer talked about that situation during his pregame media availability.

There still nothing definite in regards to the status of shooting guard James Harden for tonight's game although it appears that it is doubtful that he will play due to a foot injury.
