DeMarre Carroll will be back in the starting lineup against the Miami Heat. The Atlanta Hawks will go with their normal starting lineup of Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver in the backcourt along with Carroll, Paul Millsap and Pero Antic up front.
Carroll didn't travel with the team to London staying behind for the birth of his daughter. The Hawks struggled defensively without him surrendering 127 points and a big day to Joe Johnson. Carroll will draw the matchup against LeBron James on Monday.
Miami will be without guard Dwyane Wade for the third consecutive game due to a sore knee. Wade is anticipating returning to the lineup back at home on Tuesday.
Dwyane Wade out tonight for Heat. Figure on him playing Tuesday at home against Celtics.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) January 20, 2014
Wade has missed both meetings against the Hawks this season. He's averaged 22.1 points per game in 31 career games against the Hawks.
