BEST OF MAXIM
In one of the more surprising developments of this season, All-Star center Al Horford has been cleared to begin rehabbing from surgery to repair a torn left pectoral muscle.
Horford was expected to miss the remainder of the regular season but could be in the process of making a return much sooner than anyone expected, including coach Larry Drew.

The Hawks will be without All-Star guard Joe Johnson again in Friday night's game against the Bucks.
After missing two games and the All-Star game with tendinitis in his left knee, Johnson returned to lead Atlanta with 18 points in Wednesday night's 85-82 loss to Golden State. Johnson's knee was stiff after playing more than 37 minutes in the game.

EVERYTHING MUST GO!
It seems no team has been involved in more trade talk rumors this season than Boston, with the latest chatter being that they would like to add Atlanta's soaring star to their roster.
If you didn’t just click on the headline with the score, would you be able to tell which game Larry Drew was talking about when he said this about his offense: “We settled, especially in the first half. I thought we shot way too many jumpers. We cant’ be seduced into taking jump shots. We fell prey. We’ve got to be smarter and understand the flow of the game. It’s one...

Joe Johnson (knee) is in the starting lineup. Larry Drew said he will monitor how Joe feels to determine how much he will play. “I know with tendinitis the best thing for it is rest,” Drew said. “Hopefully these days off will benefit him.”
Drew said he doesn’t ever plan to make Joe a healthy scratch for the sake of giving him days off: “At this stage of the season,...

Johnson's sore knee stiffened during Wednesday's loss to the Golden State Warriors. It was his first game back after missing two games.

ATLANTA - The Hawks have already beaten both Dallas and Phoenix this season, and a collection of high draft picks are beginning to bear fruit just off Peachtree Street.

The Phoenix Suns today completed a sign-and-trade deal with the Atlanta Hawks that will send restricted free-agent guard Joe Johnson to Atlanta in exchange for guard/forward Boris Diaw (pronounced DEE-ow) and two future first-round draft picks. This trade also leaves Phoenix with a $6 million trade exception for their use in future dealings.
Atlanta hopes to have All-Star Joe Johnson back on the floor tonight when it plays host to the Golden State Warriors at Philips Arena.
