An early look at tonight's game between the Heat and Atlanta Hawks…

HAWKS (54-17) AT HEAT (33-38)

When/Where: 7:30 p.m., Philips Arena, Atlanta

TV/Radio: Sun Sports/FM 104.3, AM 790 and WAQI 710AM (Spanish)

Line: Hawks by nine. Opened at Hawks by 13.

Series: Heat leads all-time series 57-45. This is the final game of the season between the two division opponents. Heat is 0-3 this season against the Hawks.

Injuries: Hassan Whiteside (right hand laceration), Chris Bosh (blood clot) and Josh McRoberts (right meniscus surgery) are out for the Heat. Dwyane Wade (left knee contusion) and Chris Andersen (left calf contusion) are questionable. For the Hawks, Jeff Teague (left ankle sprain) and Mike Scott (left toe sprain) are out. Pero Antic (sore trap muscle) is questionable.

Early analysis: Udonis Haslem and Goran Dragic carried the Heat to an important victory on Wednesday against the Boston Celtics. The Heat is now two games ahead of the Celtics in the loss column with 11 games left of the regular season. With Whiteside out tonight and Andersen and Wade both questionable, the Heat once again will need some production from the bench to have a chance. It's the end of a four-game road trip for the Heat, but the Hawks are dealing with their own injuries while cruising towards the playoffs. Atlanta lost three in a row before Wednesday's victory against the Magic.
