The University of Tennessee product has missed the last 19 games with a left foot injury. This season he’s averaged 11.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.8 assists.

On the other hand, the Hawks will not be at full strength coming back from the All-Star break. Their starting point guard Dennis Schroder was forced to stay a night in Berlin and did not report back to the team on time.

The game is set to tip off at 8 p.m. and will be broadcast locally on Fox Sports Sun.
