ATLANTA -- Josh Smith is back in Atlanta's lineup against the Phoenix Suns after missing one game with a sprained left knee, but point guard Jeff Teague will miss his second straight start.

Teague, who has a sprained left ankle, was in the first version of the Hawks' starting lineup on Friday night. He was pulled early in pregame warmups. Devin Harris is the fill-in starter at point guard.

Teague is in uniform and is expected to be available off the bench.

Smith and Teague were injured Tuesday night in a loss at Miami.
