Hawks center Al Horford says he's definitely playing Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Brooklyn Nets. Horford dislocated his right pinky finger in the series opener, won by the Hawks 99-92. After a workout Monday, he said there was still some doubt about his playing status. But, after a full practice Tuesday, Horford said the finger feels much better and he's certain to be in the starting lineup. USA Today Sports

Horford added 18 points and Millsap had 16 points and 14 rebounds. The Hawks also got double-digit scoring from Dennis Schroder (16) and Carroll (11). “Oh, it was chippy,” Horford said. “Two of my former teammates, Smoove (Smith) and (Florida’s) Corey (Brewer). Smoove doesn’t really talk trash but Corey on the other hand was talking to me the whole time. At the end, I kind of gave him a look and he wasn’t too happy.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Second-grader Jayden Spalsbury has Al Horford in his corner. The seven-year old can wear his new glasses knowing that an NBA player has his back. That should mean something to those who recently made fun of his Jayden’s new look. Jayden and Horford have never met but both live in Grand Ledge, Michigan. Horford’s younger siblings went to the same school, Delta Center Elementary, currently attended by Jayden. Jayden recently got new glasses and was excited to wear them to school as he marveled at how much clearer the world now looked. However, he was in a much different mood following the day after he was bullied. His mother started and wrote on a Facebook page, entitled New Spectacles for Jayden, about the incident.

Given a chance to support Ferry this weekend, Horford deferred to the Hawks’ future ownership group. Asked directly by the Miami Herald if he thought Ferry should be forgiven for his racially charged comments and reinstated as general manager, Horford said, “I don’t know.” “Whichever ownership comes in, they’re going to have to figure those things out and see if he’s the best fit,” said Horford, who won back-to-back NCAA championships at the University of Florida. “Obviously, [Ferry] has laid in some really good groundwork with us, and part of the success that we’re having is because of him.” Miami Herald
