Hawks not changing starting lineup for Game 2

Josh Smith will be in Atlanta’s starting lineup Wednesday night

at Indiana.

The Hawks forward sprained his right ankle after stepping on

Devin Harris’ foot late in Sunday’s 107-90 loss. Indiana leads the

best-of-seven first-round series 1-0.

Coach Larry Drew said before the team’s morning shootaround he

expects Smith to be ”full go.” Smith adds he’ll be ”all right”

and he’s not thinking about the injury.

Smith was Atlanta’ top scorer (17.5 points) and second-leading

rebounder (8.4) coming into the playoffs.

Drew also said he was not planning any changes to the starting

lineup. After Sunday’s loss, there was some thought he might go

with a bigger lineup against the physical Pacers, who had a 48-32

rebounding edge in Game 1.
