The Atlanta Hawks will make a change to their starting lineup and will get an injured player back against the Suns. Mike Scott will start at power forward in place of the injured Paul Millsap and Pero Antic will dress and be available to play.

Mike Budenholzer had elected to go with a small starting lineup for the last several games that featured two point guards in Jeff Teague and Shelvin Mack. Scott will make his second start of the season and has been a key contributor off the bench for Atlanta this season. Scott is averaging a career-best 9.6 points on 48 percent shooting.

Antic has been out since January 22 with a stress fracture in his ankle. Antic has appeared in 29 games and is averaging 5.8 points and 3.4 rebounds and is shooting 37 percent from three-point range.
