Time to Band Together

According to Hawks officials, Josh Powell has been suspended for “conduct detrimental to the team” and will miss tonight’s game against the Bobcats.

This means that Atlanta will likely only have 11 players in uniform tonight since Marvin and Al are both listed as “doubtful” and Pape Sy is out west with the Utah Flash in the D-League.

With holes in both the starting line-up and now in the bench as well, the Hawks will need their healthy stars to have big games tonight. Look for Joe Johnson to step up and try to shoulder a bigger load on offense, and J-Smoove to be all over the court making plays for Atlanta.
