The injury plagued Hawks hope to have Josh Smith back in the lineup when they face off with the Boston Celtics in a crucial Game 4 matchup. Atlanta can hardly afford to return to Atlanta for Game 5 with their backs against the wall and have a chance to take back home court advantage if they can steal Sunday's game from the Celtics.
Smith said on Saturday that he would play in Game 4 after sitting out Atlanta's 90-84 overtime loss in Game 3. Tracy McGrady played a season high 40+ minutes in Game 3 and suffered an ankle injury but is also expected to be ready for Game 4.
