The Atlanta Hawks will have their full complement of players available for Tuesday's preseason game against the Miami Heat. Al Horford will return to the starting lineup for the first time since suffering a season-ending pectoral injury last season.

Kent Bazemore and Pero Antic will also make their preseason debut for the Hawks against the Heat.

Antic will play with a protective mask due to a broken nose that he suffered during the first week of training camp when hit with an inadvertent elbow from rookie Adreian Payne. Bazemore was limited at the start of training camp due to a foot injury that he suffered during the offseason. He returned to full contact practice last week.
