The Atlanta Hawks could get both Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll back in time for Monday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Both Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll took part in the Atlanta Hawks' shootaround Monday morning and could be back in the lineup against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The AJC's Chris Vivlamore reports that both players returned this morning and that Korver expects to play barring a flare up from the back injury that has sidelined him for the last six games.

Carroll sat out Saturday's loss in Washington due to an illness. Getting both back in the starting lineup would be a significant boost. Shelvin Mack and Cartier Martin started against the Wizards on Saturday and would likely return to the bench if both Korver and Carroll are ready to return.

Atlanta enters play on Monday with a slight one game lead over the Knicks for the eighth and final playoff spot.
