Hawks injury report: Lou Williams is out for the season with a torn ACL

Lakers injury report: Pau Gasol is out with a foot injury and Jordan Hill will miss the remainder of the season after hip surgery.

Hawks player to watch: Jeff Teague finished with six points and one assist in Friday's loss to the Suns and the Hawks will need a much better performance at both ends of the floor on Sunday. Teague will be matched against former MVP Steve Nash and will need to use his speed and athleticism to attack at every opportunity.

Lakers player to watch: Kobe Bryant has scored 40, 38,29, and 33 in his last four games and the Hawks will try to avoid another superhuman performance tonight. DeShawn Stevenson and Dahntay Jones are likely to see a lot of time matched on Bryant tonight.
