A tough situation just got a whole lot tougher for the Atlanta Hawks. Brad Rowland confirmed that the Hawks would be without Trae Young and Clint Capela when they take on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. Young is sidelined with back spasms, and Capela is resolving right-hand soreness.
Young is the Hawks’ leading scorer this season, while Capela paces the team with 14.5 boards per game. Rajon Rondo is listed second on the Hawks depth chart at point guard, and Onyeka Okongwu is listed behind Capela at center. However, John Collins can be moved to the five spot, and Solomon Hill can start at power forward.
The line has moved substantially on news that the Hawks would be without two of their starters. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Hawks installed as 11.5 underdogs, and the total sits at 226.
