Hawks injury report: Lou Williams is out for the season after surgery to repair a torn ACL.

Bucks injury report: No injuries to report

Hawks player to watch: Jeff Teague finished with 20 points and 12 assists in Friday's win over the Kings and will again be tested against the Bucks Brandon Jennings. Teague is averaging career bests in points (14.2) and assists (7.1) but those numbers increase to 15.2 and 9.8 assists over the last five games. How he holds his own with Jennings could be the key to an Atlanta victory.

Bucks player to watch: Brandon Jennings has been red hot since the break scoring 31 and 34 points in two losses to the Brooklyn Nets. He is averaging 19 points and 5.9 assists this season despite shooting just 40 percent from the floor.
