Jeff Teague missed this morning's shootaround but will be in the starting lineup Monday night against the Jazz. Teague was absent due to a trip to the doctor to have a wax buildup removed from his left ear.

Teague finished with nine points and nine assists in Saturday's 109-108 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. He's started 58 games this season and is averaging 16 points and 6.9 assists.

The Hawks will go with the same starting lineup from Saturday against the Jazz. Teague and Kyle Korver will be at the guards with DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Pero Antic up front. Millsap logged 33 minutes against the Clippers and showed no ill effects of the knee contusion that sidelined him for five games. Antic played in his third straight game since returning from injury and finished with 16 points and six rebounds in 30 minutes.
