Trae Young available to play Tuesday vs. Suns [UPDATE]

Hawks PG probable to return while De’Andre Hunter is available. Alex Len ruled out.

UPDATE: Jan. 14, 5:51 p.m. — Young will start vs. the Suns to no surprise.

UPDATE: Jan. 14, 12:32 p.m. — So Young is now being listed as probable, which doesn’t change much. Len has been ruled out and Hunter isn’t listed on this current report.

As you can see below, Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce confirmed Young would play, so I’ll take his word for it.

UPDATE: Jan. 14, 12:02 p.m. — Young and Hunter are both available to play vs. the Suns.

So with both players in, we don’t have those value plays available in Brandon Goodwin and Damian Jones, plus Collins’ stock takes a hit for tonight. Still, I think the game environment is strong enough to consider Collins as a core play. Young also in play, but we’ll have to see if he’s going to have his minutes restricted.

UPDATE: Jan. 13, 5:05 p.m. — Young is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Phoenix Suns.

De’Andre Hunter is questionable while Alex Len is doubtful. Young didn’t play Sunday vs. the Nets. If Young remains out, then Brandon Goodwin should start again. Goodwin played 27 minutes against Brooklyn, but wasn’t very productive. He should have an easier time against the Suns, but we’ll see what his DFS price is. With no Len, John Collins and Damian Jones are the only frontcourt bigs for Atlanta, so they’ll likely need to play increased minutes.

Atlanta Hawks PG Trae Young has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. the Brooklyn Nets, per ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

Young is reportedly dealing with a hamstring injury that will hold him out for the first time since Dec. 30. With Young sidelined, Brandon Goodwin will likely start at PG and see a nice bit of run in this game. He played 23 minutes Friday vs. the Wizards and scored 14 points. John Collins will now be the focal point of the offense and Kevin Huerter should also be tasked with handling more usage.
