From the Hawks

The Hawks will wear mismatched uniforms for the first time with red jerseys and gray shorts. It is the first time in the modern era of the NBA a team has worn mismatched uniforms. … Kyle Korver returned to the lineup after sitting out Friday’s game for right ankle rehabilitation. … Mike Muscala gave a thumbs up following a pre-game warmup in regard to his right ankle sprain. … Paul Millsap has recorded two straight double-doubles … In milestone watch, Dennis Schroder needs two points for 1,000 in his career, Kyle Korver needs one 3-pointer for 600 as a Hawk and Al Horford will appear in his 500th career game today. …

From the Hornets

Troy Daniels will be active after missing the first two games due to a left hamstring strain. … Former Hawk Marvin Williams enters averaging a double-double of 11.5 points and 11.0 rebounds. … Hornets coach Steve Clifford was more troubled by his team’s poor trap of Jeff Teague in the final seconds of Friday’s game than the admitted incorrect foul call on Jeremy Lin.
