MIAMI (AP) -- Atlanta starting forwards Al Horford and Marvin Williams will not play Friday in Game 6 of the Hawks' Eastern Conference first-round series against the Miami Heat.

Horford sprained his right ankle in Atlanta's Game 5 win. Williams will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained right wrist.

It's unclear if either will play Sunday, when Atlanta will host Miami in Game 7 or visits Cleveland to open a second-round series. Solomon Jones will start in Horford's place, said Hawks coach Mike Woodson. Mo Evans has been starting for Williams.
