Game Thread: Hawks rest all starters

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Hawks will play the Wizards without all five regular starters Sunday night.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said that Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll and Al Horford would rest. The Hawks issued a injury report as all four being out for rest. Paul Millsap remains out with a right shoulder injury.

The Hawks will use a starting lineup of Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Elton Brand.

Budenholzer said he expects to use his normal starting lineup Monday at home against the Knicks.

"We evaluate it day by day but the expectation is to play our normal group and our normal starters tomorrow," Budenholzer said.
