Injuries: Hawks—Dewayne Dedmon (leg) is out; Dennis Schroder (ankle) is questionable; Mike Muscala (ankle) in on rehab assignment at G-League affiliate Erie.


What to watch for: Schroder turned up on the Hawks’ injury report with a left ankle injury the day after he started and finished the game in a loss to the Pacers on Wednesday. A left ankle injury forced Schroder to miss two games in October. . . .

The Hawks (7-24) have the worst record in the NBA but have a better record on the road (4-11) than at Philips Arena (3-13). . . .

The Thunder (16-15) acquired Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in offseason trades to go alongside All-Star Russell Westbrook. They were 8-12 through November but have won four of their last five games, including a 107-79 victory over the Jazz on Wednesday. Oklahoma City has won five of its last six home games.
