INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Josh Smith will be in Atlanta’s starting lineup Wednesday night at Indiana.

The Hawks forward sprained his right ankle after stepping on Devin Harris’ foot late in Sunday’s 107-90 loss. Indiana leads the best-of-seven first-round series 1-0.

Coach Larry Drew said before the team’s morning shootaround he expects Smith to be “full go.” Smith adds he’ll be “all right” and he’s not thinking about the injury.

Smith was Atlanta’ top scorer (17.5 points) and second-leading rebounder (8.4) coming into the playoffs.

Drew also said he was not planning any changes to the starting lineup. After Sunday’s loss, there was some thought he might go with a bigger lineup against the physical Pacers, who had a 48-32 rebounding edge in Game 1.
