Pero Antic will suit up and play Sunday evening against the Indiana Pacers but Lou Williams will not due to a sore hamstring according to the AJC's Chris Vivlamore.

Antic was listed as a game-time decision due to a sore ankle but will start and give it a go against Roy Hibbert. Williams has played well of late scoring in double figures in six of his last seven games. Williams finished with 16 points and six assists in Friday's big win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Neither Shelvin Mack nor Cartier Martin played in Friday's win so either could see some time today in place of Williams.

Sunday's game will be the first game missed for Williams since he was a DNP-CD for seven straight games in March. He has appeared in 55 games in his first season back from an ACL injury and is averaging 10.3 points on 39 percent shooting.
