2012/2013 NBA Regular Season Game #52
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
8 p.m. ET
SportSouth HD, 680 AM/93.7 FM
Probable Starters
Mario Chalmers PG Jeff Teague
Dwyane Wade SG DeShawn Stevenson
LeBron James SF Josh Smith
Shane Battier PF Al Horford

Hawks injury report: Lou Williams is out for the season with a torn ACL. Everyone else is expected to be available Wednesday against the Heat.

Heat injury report: Mike Miller is out with an illness and Udonis Haslem is probable with a leg injury

Hawks player to watch: Josh Smith for as many off court reasons as on court. Smith is averaging more than 24 points and 10 rebounds over the last four games. He has also been at the forefront of trade rumors and could be moved in advance of Thursday's trade deadline.

Heat player to watch: LeBron James has scored at least 30 points in his last seven games while making 60 percent of his field goal attempts. If the Hawks hope to snap their losing streak to the Heat then they will need to slow down James.
