The Atlanta Hawks could be without the services of small forward Marvin Wiliams for the remainder of the game after he landed awkwardly on a drive in the first quarter and suffered a sprained left ankle. Tracy McGrady entered the game for Williams who headed immediately to the locker room area where he is getting x-rays. His return to the game is questionable.

If Williams is unable to come back, Larry Drew will likely turn to a combination of Tracy McGrady and Vladimir Radmanovic at the small forward position. Radmanovic entered the game in the first and promptly hit his first two three-point attempts. Williams' absence could also mean more playing time for rookie Ivan Johnson.
