Al Horford said that, as of Thursday, he isn't planning on playing Saturday. Said Horford, "It's not really getting any better." Horford tried to shoot at Thursday's practice, but was still sore. He'll give it another try Friday.

- Horford's injury will preclude coach Larry Drew from implementing any lineup changes that he has talked about since the 34-point loss to Philadelphia Tuesday. "It is definitely still weighing on my mind," Drew said. "The decision has not been made yet." The team scrimmaged but didn't have any out-of-the-ordinary lineups, Mo Evans said.
