Update, Game 1 — Reddish is expected to be available to play in Game 1 vs. the Bucks, per coach Nate McMillan. It doesn’t sound like Reddish will be much of a factor, per McMillan. Bogdanovic is also available to play.

The Atlanta Hawks may be getting a key rotation player back soon.

The Hawks have upgraded forward Cam Reddish to questionable for Game 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern conference finals, a change in his status from the previous two playoff series. Reddish has been inactive since late February but appears to be close to coming back.

Reddish averaged 28.8 minutes per game in his second season with the franchise, scoring 11.2 points per game. He continued to struggle from the field and likely won’t take the floor much, but could serve as a viable rotation player for Nate McMillan if called upon. The Hawks will need all hands on deck against the Bucks. Reddish returning provides an additional body in the lineup.

De’Andre Hunter and Brandon Goodwin remain out for the Hawks. Game 7 hero Kevin Huerter is probable to play Wednesday while Bogdan Bogdanovic is questionable.
