Tracy McGrady Injury: Back Spasms Sideline Hawks Forward

The Atlanta Hawks will be down two small forwards Wednesday night when they take on the Indiana Pacers after Tracy McGrady was a late scratch from the lineup with back spasms.

Atlanta's starting small forward Marvin Williams didn't even make the trip after suffering an ankle injury in Saturday's win over Chicago. Vladimir Radmanovic got the start for Williams on Monday and scored 14 points in the victory over New Jersey. Radmanovic will start again against the Pacers with Joe Johnson or Josh Smith soaking up some of the back up minutes. McGrady's injury could also mean more time for rookie Ivan Johnson.
