Young’s health is paramount to Atlanta’s chances in the series, as the Hawks are widely considered to be big underdogs against the Milwaukee Bucks. He suffered the injury by inadvertently stepping on an official’s foot during Game 3 of the series.
Young has started to build himself a playoff legacy in the 2021 postseason. Over 15 games, he is averaging 29.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 9.5 assists per contest while shooting 42.7 percent from the field and 32.6 percent from 3-point range.
Milwaukee currently leads the series, 2-1, and if the Hawks fail to defend home court in Game 4, the Bucks will take a 3-1 lead with the series swinging back to Milwaukee.
More information will likely become available on Young’s status as Game 4 approaches. The game will take place Tuesday night.
