Larry Drew just held his pregame meeting with the media and announced that Willie Green and Joe Johnson will both be out again tonight for the Hawks, while Tracy McGrady (knee) and Jerry Stackhouse (stomach virus) will be in uniform and available.

The starting lineup will be the same as the last two games with Jeff Teague at the point, Kirk Hinrich at the two, Marvin Williams and Josh Smith at forward and Zaza Pachulia holding it down at center.

Coach Drew also was asked for a Horford update and he said that he was told that Al is out for the regular season and that there is a possibility he will return for the playoffs. This is the most clear cut answer we have been given concerning a timetable on Horford’s return.
