Trail Blazers Vs. Hawks: Jason Collins To Start, Tracy McGrady Expected To Play

Larry Drew is opting to go with his big lineup and will insert Jason Collins into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Collins will likely draw the matchup with the Trail Blazers Kurt Thomas.

This will be the second straight start for Collins since the injury to Al Horford. Zaza Pachulia started the first two games following Horford's injury.

Tracy McGrady returned to the Hawks lineup on Monday playing eight scoreless minutes in the first half against the Raptors. McGrady didn't return in the second half after reporting to Larry Drew that his back had stiffened up during halftime.
