--F Tayshaun Prince had the freshest legs against Philadelphia Saturday, though it sure didn't look that way on the court. Prince missed the previous two games to attend to a family matter. He rejoined the team in Atlanta but didn't offer much energy, scoring six points with four rebounds in 25 minutes.
--G Walker Russell Jr. was rescued from the D-League when backcourt injuries piled up but the 29-year-old rookie has learned how tough it is to get off clean shots at the NBA level. He is shooting 17.4 percent (4-of-23) in six games but remains in the rotation with Ben Gordon and Will Bynum sidelined by injuries. He was 1-of-8 in Philadelphia, though his make was his first career 3-pointer.
--F Austin Daye had 12 points against the Sixers as his offensive revival continued. Daye is averaging 17.3 points over the last three games after scoring a total of 45 points in the first 18 games. His 3-point shooting has been particularly sharp. He has made 7-of-14 during his hot streak despite a sore ankle.
"It's hard to shake the pain," he said. "It was a really bad ankle injury but I'm going to be out on the floor if I can walk."
--F Charlie Villanueva (right ankle soreness) has missed the last 14 games and is out indefinitely.
--G Will Bynum (sprained right foot) has missed nine consecutive games and is questionable to play Monday at Milwaukee.
--G Ben Gordon (sore left shoulder) has missed the last five games and is questionable Monday.
