Young Expected to Return Tonight

After what looked to be a season altering injury against the Miami Heat on the 29th, Trae Young is expected to return from a right ankle sprain tonight against San Antonio, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sources told ESPN Young participated in practice on Monday for the first time since the sprain.

Fortunately for Atlanta, the Hawks have only played one game since then — a loss at home vs Miami on Halloween night.

In his second season, Young is averaging an impressive 26.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists. Young, who just turned 21, had a great rookie campaign. After a rough start, Young flipped a switch the second-half, finishing 2nd for rookie of the year behind Mavs star Luka Doncic.

The Hawks have not made the postseason since 2017. In a pretty open Eastern Conference, the Hawks are trying to prove the “experts” wrong.
