76ers vs Hawks: Game Preview - Carroll and Korver Set to Return

The slumping Atlanta Hawks get a much-needed lift tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers, as starters DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver will both return to the lineup after missing the previous game.

Both players took part in shootaround earlier this morning.

Carroll missed Saturday night’s game at Washington due to a stomach illness. He had to be hospitalizaed Friday for IV fluids, reports Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.

Korver had back spasms and is returning from a six-game stint on the disabled list — the Hawks were 0-6 in his absence.

This is a must-win game for the Hawks, who are holding a slim one-game lead over the New York Knicks for the eighth and final playoff spot.
