The Hawks will finally debut their projected starting lineup in tonight’s exhibition game against the Pelicans. Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard will start the game for the first time this preseason. Millsap missed the first four exhibition games as he returned from a non-surgical procedure on his right knee before the start of training camp. He played his first game on Sunday but the Hawks rested the other four starters for that game.
“Obviously, Paul is such a big part of what we do and does so many thing for us,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “It will be great to see him play with Baze and Dennis and Kyle and Dwight. We’ll get those guys some minutes and some opportunities and some reps together.”
