"Lue provided the boost the Hawks needed at point guard against Miami, playing some crucial minutes with a sore groin and a sore knee still bothering him.The Hawks can afford to give Law a couple more days off as the Timberwolves are the rare team in the league that can look at the Anthony Johnson/Tyronn Lue point guard tandem with envy. Hell, with Antoine Walker around, the Timberwolves can look with envy at Josh Smith's shot selection.
The Hawks' depth at the position remains paper thin, with rookie Acie Law IV (ankle) and veteran Speedy Claxton (knee) nursing injuries that haven't allowed them to play. Law, however, is expected to return either tonight against the Timberwolves or more realistically against in Chicago on Tuesday or Milwaukee on Wednesday at Philips Arena."
