Hawks list Trae Young as questionable vs. Thunder
Former Oklahoma star Trae Young may not play in the Hawks’ only game at OKC this season.
On Thursday evening, the Hawks listed Young (right thigh contusion) as questionable to play against the Thunder Friday. Young missed Atlanta’s 102-95 win over the Clippers Wednesday with the same injury.
The Hawks (11-34) have a 2-3 record in games without Young this season, but his on/off splits are striking. The team’s offensive rating – which measures how many points it scores every 100 possessions – is 109.8 when Young is on the floor, compared to 94.3 when he’s off the court. Young ranks No. 3 in points per game (29.2), behind only MVP candidates James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Thunder faces the Hawks at 7 p.m. Friday.
