Josh Smith Injury: Hawks Forward Testing Knee At Shootaround Prior To Game 4

Injured Hawks forward Josh Smith reiterated his intentions to return to the lineup in Game 4 against the Boston Celtics Sunday morning at the team's shootaround.

Smith tested the knee at shootaround and will do so again before tip off on Sunday. Game 4 is crucial for the Hawks as they look to avoid returning home in Game 5 down 3-1 in the series. Smith suffered the injury late in Game 2 and sat out Atlanta's 90-84 overtime loss in Game 3. The Hawks are thin up front being also without Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia.
