  • Hawks' Trae Young: Needs surgery, out four-plus weeks

    The Hawks announced Sunday that Young will undergo surgery Tuesday to address a tear of the radial collateral ligament in the fifth finger on his left hand. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated in four weeks following surgery.

    Young suffered the injury during Friday's 123-121 loss to Toronto, and an MRI on Sunday confirmed that he suffered ligament damage to his pinkie finger. Fully torn ligaments can cause chronic pain and joint instability, so undergoing surgery appears to be Young's best option to avoid longer-term problems. Since Young won't be evaluated until late in March -- once the fantasy playoffs are over in most leagues -- and could require some additional time to get fully ramped up even if he's cleared for on-court work, managers in redraft leagues may be best off moving on from him. The Hawks currently hold full control of the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference, which sets the team up for a third consecutive Play-In Tournament appearance, but ensuring smooth recovery for Young could be a greater priority for Atlanta than chasing down a playoff berth. For whatever length of time Young ends up being sidelined, Dejounte Murray should take over as the Hawks' full-time starting point guard, while the team will likely turn to a collection of other guards like Bogdan Bogdanovic, Garrison Mathews, Patty Mills and Kobe Bufkin to absorb Young's vacated minutes.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Ruled out for Sunday

    Young (finger) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Orlando.

    Young was listed as questionable on Atlanta's initial injury report, but the Hawks ruled him out for good a couple hours later. The severity of the issue isn't known, but this puts Young's status for Tuesday against the Jazz in jeopardy. With Young out at least one game, it's likely that Bogdan Bogdanovic moves into the starting unit with Dejounte Murray sliding over to point guard.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Questionable against Orlando

    Young is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Magic due to a left finger injury, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Young presumably injured his finger against Toronto on Friday but was still able to log 35 minutes. If the star guard is ruled out, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Patty Mills are candidates to receive increased playing time.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Posts double-double

    Young racked up 12 points (4-12 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and 12 assists over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 122-99 loss to the Hornets.

    Young didn't have a good shooting performance and struggled as a scoring threat, but he salvaged his fantasy stat line by delivering 12 assists -- the fifth time he posted double-digit dimes across his last six appearances. Young has been playing well of late and is averaging 24.8 points with 11.1 assists per game in six February contests.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Sharp facilitation Monday

    Young registered 19 points (3-14 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 11-12 FT), three rebounds and 14 assists over 36 minutes during Monday's 136-126 loss to Chicago.

    Young posted his 21st game of the season with at least 12 assists. He has posted just 4-for-18 shooting from beyond the arc across his last two games, but he cut down on his turnovers Monday -- posting just two turnovers after averaging 5.0 giveaways in eight prior contests.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Double-double in loss to Boston

    Young notched 20 points (8-25 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 38 minutes during Wednesday's 125-117 loss to the Celtics.

    The All-Star guard had a tough shooting night, but Young still produced his 32nd double-double of the season, sixth in the league. He's also scored at least 20 points in seven straight games since returning from a concussion, averaging 28.3 points, 11.3 assists, 4.0 threes, 1.9 steals and 1.4 boards during that time while shooting 47.5 percent from beyond the arc.
