Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young had an MRI and it revealed a bone bruise in his right foot, the team announced.
He will be listed as questionable for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks on June 29.
Despite the questionable tag, Young will likely be more probable, as he already stated that “the plan” is to play.
“I got some treatment on it,” he said. “I’m going to go get some more in the morning. That’s all I can do right now, is to get treatment.”
The 22-year-old spoke about how the injury specifically affected his game.
“Really just my blow-by speed,” said Young. “I mean, that’s a big part of my game, is my ability just to blow by anybody. And when you’re on the left side and you’re trying to blow by, you got to use your right foot. My left-hand pass to [Bogdan Bogdanovic], I was going down the left side — it was in a lot of pain. It’s more just the pushoff and the blow-by.”
The injury occurred when Young stepped on the foot of referee Sean Wright late in the third quarter.
The Hawks and Bucks split the first two games in Milwaukee and the Bucks now lead 2-1 after a comeback Game 3 win in Atlanta.
