Atlanta Hawks swingman Cartier Martin has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Miami Heat but center Gustavo Ayon appears to be a gametime decision as reported by the AJC's Chris Vivlamore:

Ayon has missed six games due to an ankle injury and leg contusion that was suffered in the final moments of a win over Cleveland on December 6. Martin was apparently hurt a week later in a win over Washington and has missed the last four games.

Elton Brand has seen more action of late at the center position for the Hawks. Ayon started in the previous meeting between the Hawks and the Heat and finished with four points and six rebounds in over 25 minutes.

The loss of Martin has been lessened thanks to the return of Lou Williams who finished with 25 points in Friday's win over Utah.
