Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith missed practice on Tuesday with a sprained right ankle. It may not be a factor moving forward, but Hawks coach Larry Drew did say Smith suffered the ankle injury late in Game 1. The Hawks are hopeful he'll be on the floor against the Indiana Pacers for Game 2.

Smith led the Hawks with eight rebounds yesterday, scoring 15 points and dishing five assists on 7-15 shooting and committing four turnovers.
