ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Flip Murray, Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Mario West, Guard Mo Evans, Guard Speedy Claxton, Forward Thomas Gardner, Forward Othello Hunter, Forward Solomon Jones, Forward/center Zaza Pachulia, Center Randolph Morris.PLAYER NOTES:
--G Acie Law IV didn't dent the rotation against the Blazers. He came down with a nasty bug earlier in the week and really started to feel it in Portland. But the Hawks could use his services whenever he's ready to return.
--C Al Horford cooled off considerably after his 18 points and 18 rebounds in the win over Sacramento. The Blazers, with their length and athleticism on the front line, used an assortment of player to keep Horford busy. And it worked.
--G Speedy Claxton is on this trip but has yet to suit up for a game this season. In fact, Claxton hasn't finished a full practice. There are rumblings that he's interested in returning to action, but don't expect to see it anytime soon.
--G Speedy Claxton remains on the inactive list with a hamstring injury and doesn't appear to be in the Hawks' plans anytime soon.
