Due to personal reasons, Trae Young will be absent from Tuesday’s match against the Detroit Pistons, marking his inaugural game off this season.
Additionally listed on the injury report are Kobe Bufkin, sidelined due to a left thumb fracture, and Mouhamed Gueye, out with a right low back stress fracture.
With young on the sidelines , this pens up a starting lineup vacancy, with Bogdan Bogdanovic poised to step in, potentially boosting his fantasy worth. Consequently, Dejounte Murray is set to take on the point guard responsibilities.
While Wesley Matthews, Garrison Mathews, and AJ Griffin will see increased playing time, their fantasy relevance is limited, and they aren’t advisable additions in fantasy leagues.
In the ongoing season, Young is maintaining an impressive performance, scoring an average of 24.4 points and dishing out 10.2 assists per game. His contributions have been instrumental in steering the Hawks to a 5-4 record.
