Hawks Injury Update: Jerry Stackhouse, Willie Green Are Game-Time Decisions

Both Willie Green and Jerry Stackhouse took part in today's shootaround for the Hawks but both players remain game-time decisions for tonight's contest against the Pacers.

Green has missed the last two games after injuring his back against the Golden State Warriors. Stackhouse missed practice on Monday with a stomach bug but made the trip to Indiana with the team.

With Joe Johnson doubtful to play, Atlanta could use either Green or Stackhouse to help provide depth in the backcourt. Kirk Hinrich is likely to start alongside Jeff Teague with Jannero Pargo also filling in off the bench.
