Hawks holding out hobbled Trae Young in Game 3 against Bucks
By CHARLES ODUM AP Sports Writer
ATLANTA (AP) — Trae Young will miss the Atlanta Hawks' Game 4 of their Eastern Conference finals against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday due to an ankle injury.
An MRI on Monday revealed Young suffered a bone bruise in his right ankle. Young suffered the injury late in the third quarter of Sunday night's 113-102 Game 3 loss when he stepped on referee Sean Wright's foot and turned his ankle.
The Bucks lead the series 2-1.
The Hawks face the difficult challenge of pulling even without their top scorer and playmaker. Young has averaged 29.8 points and 9.5 assists in the postseason.
