Al Horford will return to action tonight for the Hawks after missing a week (two games) of action with a back contusion.

Horford injured his back in the final seconds of Atlanta’s game against the Clippers when he drew a flagrant foul from L.A.’s Blake Griffin. Al stepped to the line and hit the game winning free throws, but was then removed for the final inbounds play and has not been in uniform since.
