Hawks' Josh Smith (knee) out Friday
Marvin Williams is slated to start in Smith's place Friday night at Indiana.
Smith missed two games in early March with the same injury and has played with a protective wrap on the knee since his return. He also missed Tuesday's loss to San Antonio.
Smith is averaging 16.7 points and 8.7 rebounds.
