The Atlanta Hawks got off to a hot start this season, but have slowly come back down earth. To make matters worse, after a 3-8 start to 2013, the Hawks have now lost "Sweet" Lou Williams for the season after he suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. Lou Williams was the Hawks third leading scorer this season and they will now rely on Devin Harris...
Rookie John Jenkins' first career start wasn't a memorable one. In 14 minutes, the rookie guard missed all three of his shots, grabbed two rebounds and dished an assist. Stay away from him.

Jannero Pargo played in seven games earlier this year with the Wizards.
