ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks are without guard Jamal Crawford and backup center Zaza Pachulia against the Miami Heat.

Crawford, who led the Hawks with 28 points in Tuesday night's win at Memphis, was held out with a sore left shoulder. The Hawks say Crawford aggravated the shoulder while sleeping Tuesday night.

Crawford is the Hawks' second-leading scorer with his average of 17.8 points per game.

Pachulia missed his second straight game with a sore left hip. The Hawks say a MRI on the hip showed nothing significant. The team expects Pachulia to be cleared when it resumes practice on Monday following the All-Star break.
