Raptors Vs. Hawks: Jason Collins To Start, Tracy McGrady Not Playing

Without Zaza Pachulia available Larry Drew will insert Jason Collins into the starting lineup for tonight's game against the Toronto Raptors. Despite being limited at both ends of the floor, Drew is going with Collins size over the much smaller Ivan Johnson.

Pachulia is expected to miss at least two games with a foot injury and isn't the only Hawks player that won't be playing tonight. The Hawks have already confirmed that forward Tracy McGrady will dress but will not play. Larry Drew has been extremely cautious with McGrady and has resisted playing him in back-to-back situations. Looks like McGrady should be available for Monday's game in Toronto.
