ATLANTA -- All three of the Atlanta Hawks' injured starters -- leading scorer Joe Johnson, center Al Horford and forward Marvin Williams -- are in uniform for Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Johnson and Horford are both nursing sprained ankles, while Williams has been bothered by a sprained wrist most of the playoffs. But the Hawks need all the help they can get Saturday night after getting blown out in the first two games of the best-of-seven series in Cleveland.

Horford and Williams both sat out Game 2. Johnson went down in the third quarter after the Cavaliers already had built a big lead.
