Young totaled 14 points (4-17 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes during Saturday's 118-107 loss to the Bucks.
After missing two straight games, Young returned to the starting lineup for the Hawks but was clearly hampered by his foot injury. While his presence must have been an emotional boost for the team, the question has to be asked whether he was actually a positive influence on the court. His inability to stoutly defend was on show down the stretch, perhaps as a result of his ailing foot. That said, this season has to be seen as a massive positive for the club, and the future is certainly bright in Atlanta.
Young (foot) will play in Saturday's Game 6 against the Bucks, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
After missing the past two games with a bruised foot, Young will return to the lineup Saturday. He'll almost certainly start, which should push Lou Williams back to the bench. Bogdan Bogdanovic's offensive responsibilities should also decrease to a normal level. In the first three games of the series, Young averaged 32.7 points, 6.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 36.0 minutes.
Young (foot) is expected to be a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 6 against the Bucks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports. He is officially listed as questionable.
Young has been sidelined over the past two games due to a bruised right foot caused by stepping on a referee's foot. If he sits out again, the Hawks will likely continue to start Lou Williams at point guard. Atlanta is down 3-2 in the series after losing Game 5 in Milwaukee.
Young (foot) is out for Thursday's Game 5 against the Bucks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Young will miss a second straight game due to a bruised right foot suffered in Game 3 while stepping on a referee's foot. In his absence, Lou Williams, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Kevin Huerter should continue seeing increased usage.
Young (foot) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 5 against the Bucks, A. Sherrod Blakely of Bleacher Report reports.
Young missed Game 4 due to his right foot bruise, but he may return for Game 5. In his place during Game 4, Lou Williams drew the start as the Hawks got an upset victory over the Bucks, who lost Giannis Antetokounmpo to a hyperextended left knee in the third quarter.
Young (foot) is out for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Bucks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This is devastating news for Young and the Hawks. Young stepped on a referee's foot during Game 3 and was able to play out the remainder of the game, but he's now dealing with severe mobility issues and a significant degree of pain ahead of Game 4. Without him, the Hawks will likely turn to Bogdan Bogdanovic, who is playing through a knee injury, for more offense. Kevin Huerter and Lou Williams should also see more touches.
Coach Nate McMillan said Young (foot) is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's Game 4 versus the Bucks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
The 22-year-old participated in the team shootaround Tuesday morning but officially remains questionable with the start of Game 4 about 90 minutes away. Young is trending toward playing against Milwaukee, though he'll still need to going through a pregame workout before being cleared to suit up. The star guard sustained a bone bruise to his right foot when he stepped on the foot of an official during the third quarter of Sunday's Game 3.
Young's (foot) teammate, Onyeka Okongwu, said that the point guard took part in the Hawks' morning walk-through and shootaround ahead of Tuesday's Game 4 matchup with the Bucks and is "looking good," Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.
Atlanta officially lists Young as questionable for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals with a bone bruise to his right foot after he sustained the injury late in the third quarter of Sunday's Game 3 loss, when he stepped awkwardly on an official. Though Young was able to check back into the contest in the fourth quarter after being evaluated in the locker room, he wasn't particularly effective over the final nine minutes, going 1-for-4 from the field and committing a turnover while ceding more playmaking duties to Kevin Huerter and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Okongwu's comments suggest Young is trending toward playing Tuesday, but the 22-year-old could be well below 100 percent.
Young is considered questionable for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday after being diagnosed with a bone bruise to his right foot, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Young appeared to step on an official's foot during the third quarter of Sunday's Game 3, which led to a brief stint in the locker room before he was cleared to return to the court early in the fourth quarter. Young has had a phenomenal postseason so far and the Hawks need him for a crucial Game 4. In the event that Young is unable to play, expect Lou Williams to play a larger role while Bogdan Bogdanovic could spend more time operating on the ball.
The Hawks are awaiting the results of an MRI on Young's right ankle, Sarah Spencer of the Journal-Constitution reports.
Speaking to the media Monday morning, coach Nate McMillan didn't have much to say about the star guard, who rolled his ankle stepping on the foot of a referee during the third quarter of Sunday's Game 3 against Milwaukee. Young was able to return to the game in the fourth, but he was clearly hobbled and favoring the ankle. McMillan said Young received additional treatment Monday morning, and the team should know more once the imaging results are released. For now, Young should be considered questionable for Tuesday's Game 4, but it would be relatively surprising if he's held out entirely.
Young will undergo an MRI on his right ankle Monday, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Young sprained his right ankle when he inadvertently stepped on the foot of a referee in the third quarter of Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Bucks. He said that he'll get as much treatment as possible ahead of Game 4 on Tuesday, and his MRI could help determine the extent of his injury. If Young is unable to play Tuesday, Lou Williams and Kris Dunn would likely see increased run. Despite being hobbled Sunday, Young finished with 35 points (12-23 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four assists and one steal in 39 minutes.
Young sprained his right ankle early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Game 3 against the Bucks but has returned to the game.
Late in the third quarter, Young appeared to accidentally step on the foot of a referee near the sideline, and the Hawks have since confirmed that he did, indeed, sprain the ankle. Young briefly went back to the locker room to be evaluated, but he quickly returned to the bench and checked back into the game at the 8:44 mark of the fourth quarter. With only one day off before Tuesday's Game 4, the injury will be worth monitoring over the next 48 hours.
Young recorded 15 points (6-16 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, two steals and two rebounds across 28 minutes in Friday's 125-91 loss at Milwaukee.
Young needed 16 shots to record 15 points, missed most of his three-point attempts and also committed a season-high nine turnovers, so this was a terrible outing for the star guard, who was coming off a 48-point performance in Game 1. Young clearly had an off game Friday, but he should remain Atlanta's main offensive threat ahead of Game 3 on Sunday, and his fantasy value shouldn't suffer any hits going forward.
Young finished with 48 points (17-34 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 10-12 FT), 11 assists, seven rebounds and one steal in 41 minutes during Wednesday's 116-113 victory over the Bucks.
Young put the Hawks on his back, showing no fear once again, carrying them to an impressive road victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. He added 11 dimes in what was another statement performance, continuing to prove the doubters wrong. Game 2 will be Friday in Milwaukee and Young is sure to be front and center once more as the Hawks look to assert themselves even further.
Young amassed 21 points (5-23 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 10 assists and three rebounds in 43 minutes during Sunday's 103-96 victory over the 76ers.
Coming into the game with a shoulder injury, Young was unable to find his rhythm on the offensive end of the floor. That is until the final quarter when shots started dropping for him and he scored 10 of his 21 total points. The fact that the Hawks were able to secure the series on the road, and with Young offering little in the way of scoring, certainly bodes well for their chances against the Bucks. That said, it is likely the Bucks put up more resistance than the 76ers did, especially on the defensive end.
Young (shoulder) will be available for Sunday's Game 7 against the 76ers.
Young has been battling discomfort in his right shoulder for most of the series, but the issue isn't serious enough to truly jeopardize his status. The star guard certainly did not appear overly affected in Games 5 and 6, when he put up 39 and 34 points, respectively, while playing 40 minutes in both contests. Young tacked on 12 assists, five rebounds and three steals in Game 6, though the Hawks' fourth-quarter rally fell short.
Young (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's Game 7 against the 76ers, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Young continues to deal with a shoulder injury, but it hasn't slowed him down recently, as he's averaged 32.7 points, 12.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 steals across the past three games. He's struggled from two-point range during this stretch, but he's shot 37.0 percent from deep and is making 8.7 free throws per game at an 81.3 percent clip.
Young notched 34 points (13-30 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds and three steals across 40 minutes in Friday's loss to the 76ers.
Young notched his third 30-point performance and his fourth double-double on the series, but his efforts weren't enough, and the Hawks couldn't close out the Sixers at home. The star point guard should play a pivotal role in Game 7 on Sunday since he's averaging 30.3 points and 11.0 assists per game in this series.
Young (shoulder) will play in Friday's Game 6 against the 76ers, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.
As expected, Young will continue to play through right shoulder soreness. In the series, he's averaging 29.6 points, 10.8 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 38.8 minutes. He's coming off a 39-point performance in Game 5.
Young (shoulder) is listed as probable for Friday's Game 6 against the 76ers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
The dynamic guard has been battling soreness in his right shoulder for the last few games, and while he still may not be at 100 percent, there's almost no chance that Young won't continue to play through any discomfort. After putting up 25 points and 18 assists in Game 4, Young followed up with 39 points (17-19 FG), seven assists and three steals in Wednesday night's wild, come-from-behind victory that pushed the Hawks ahead 3-2 in the series. Through five games, Young is torching the Sixers to the tune of 29.6 points, 10.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game, though he's shooting just 31.7 percent from three for the series.
