The Atlanta Hawks will look to get back into the win column Thursday night when they open a four game home stretch against the visiting Charlotte Bobcats. Atlanta could be down as many as three of its key players tonight as Marvin Williams (ankle), Tracy McGrady (back) and Al Horford (shoulder) could miss the game.
Williams hurt his ankle in Atlanta's win over Chicago last Saturday and missed the road trip. Tracy McGrady was a late scratch for last night's loss in Indiana due to back spasms and Al Horford went down in the first quarter with what was called a shoulder sprain. Horford will be re-evaluated today by Atlanta's team doctors.
Charlotte comes into the game struggling with a 2-8 record. They suffered a lackluster 82-70 loss on Tuesday at home to the Houston Rockets.
Game date/time: Thursday, January 12, 7:30 p.m.
Location: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
