Young finished with 31 points (11-25 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 16 assists and four rebounds in 44 minutes during Monday's double-overtime win against the Hornets. He's been a double-double machine all year, but this was Young's first in the Hawks' four games this month (three of which he's played in). Young's prolific scoring night was boosted by the return of his outside shot, as he had made just one attempt from deep in his prior two games combined.
Young notched 16 points (4-16 FG, 1-10 3Pt, 7-9 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Saturday's 118-101 loss at Memphis. Young returned to action after missing just one game due to illness, but he didn't look good and accounted for nearly half of his points from the charity stripe, as he endured a rough shooting performance on the road at Memphis. It was a below-par performance for the All-Star guard, and he will attempt to turn things around Monday at home against a struggling Hornets team.
Coach Lloyd Pierce said Young (illness) will start Saturday's game at Memphis, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Young missed Friday's game against the Wizards due to flu-like symptoms, but he'll return to action Saturday without any minutes restriction. The 21-year-old is averaging 26.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 10.4 assists in 34 minutes over his last five games.
Young (illness) is questionable for Saturday's contest against the Grizzlies. Young sat out Friday's loss to the Wizards, and he seems to still be feeling under the weather. More information on his condition may arrive closer to tipoff. If he's sidelined once more, Jeff Teague would presumably draw another start.
Young (illness) won't play Friday against the Wizards, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Due to an illness, Young will miss his first contest since Feb. 7. While Young is on the sideline, Jeff Teague and Brandon Goodwin could be in line to see expanded roles.
