ATLANTA (AP) -- The injury plagued Atlanta Hawks are getting used to having only 10 players.

Forward Ivan Johnson is in Texas for the birth of his child, missing Wednesday night's game against Cleveland. It's the third straight game the Hawks have only two-thirds of their 15-man roster, even with the return of guard Willie Green from a hamstring injury.

Marvin Williams (hip flexor) and Vladimir Radmanovic (back) are still out, while Jannero Pargo is recovering from an emergency appendectomy. Al Horford has missed most of the season after undergoing pectoral surgery, though he did put up a few shots in practice Tuesday using only his right arm.

The prognosis is still the same for Horford. He's expected to miss the entire regular season, with a chance of returning for the playoffs.
