Pero Antic traveled with the Atlanta Hawks to London Monday night per a team source despite sitting out Sunday's game in Memphis due to back spasms. His status for Thursday's game will be updated closer to tip off but he is on the trip which is a good sign that he could be back in the lineup.

Antic started the last five games for the Hawks at center before sitting out on Sunday. He's averaging 10.3 points and 5.4 rebounds while making 12-25 attempts from three-point range as a starter. Antic finished with eight points and three rebounds in Atlanta's 91-86 loss at Brooklyn earlier this month.

Antic is averaging 5.0 points and 2.9 rebounds in 26 games on the season. He has seen his minutes increase rapidly in wake of Al Horford's season-ending pectoral injury.
