Hawks center Al Horford said he plans to play against Philly at Philips tonight, four days after he crashed to the floor in a collision with Clippers rookie Blake Griffin. "I think I should be OK for the game," Horford said after participating in shootaround this morning. "I think as long as I go out there and feel OK and I feel right, I think you can play through some pain. I'm actually encouraged [because the play] looked really bad. But fortunately it is not nothing serious on my back or anything." Horford missed Atlanta's game at Washington on Saturday and didn't practice Monday. He's missed two other games this season, sitting out games against New Orleans and Charlotte last month with a sprained ankle.
