The Atlanta Hawks could be without the services of center Pero Antic who is a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Indiana Pacers because of a sore ankle per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Antic missed about a month earlier this season due to a broken ankle and has battled soreness since returning. He's averaging 6.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game this season although he has been slumping of late. He finished with six points and five rebounds in Friday's win over the Cavaliers. Elton Brand is expected to start if Antic can't play.

The Hawks could use Antic against the Pacers as a means to force Indiana center Roy HIbbert away from the basket. Antic finished with 16 points and four rebounds in his only appearance against the Pacers this season.
