John Jenkins to get first NBA start vs. Timberwolves
Peachtree Hoops | Jan 21
With numerous injuries to the backcourt, the Hawks will once again shuffle their lineup as Jeff Teague, John Jenkins, Josh Smith, Al Horford, and Zaza Pachulia will start in this afternoon's game against the Timberwolves. For Jenkins, it will be his first career start and talking with him in the locker room before the game he says he's excited and a little bit nervous about it, but he's ready to go. Jenkins has experienced it all in his rookie year, from being at the very end of the bench to the D-League to the reserve unit and now to the starting lineup.
