Hawks put Newble on injured list activate Crawford



ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks put guard Ira Newble on the injured list Friday and activated forward Chris Crawford.

Newble has been bothered by inflammation in his left knee. He sat out Wednesday night's game against Portland and was placed on the injured list before the Hawks hosted the Sacramento Kings.

Crawford has missed 31 games because of lingering problems with his left knee. He underwent surgery after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament early last season.

Crawford was not expected to play against the Kings. Neither was guard Mike Wilks, who has a dislocated right thumb, leaving the Hawks with 10 healthy players.
