Hawks' De'Andre Hunter to miss game against Lakers with knee injury
An MRI and medical review Saturday revealed articular wear and tear in Hunter's right knee.
ATLANTA (AP) — De’Andre Hunter, who has emerged as Atlanta’s second-leading scorer in his second season, will miss at least one game with a knee injury.
The Hawks said Saturday Hunter will not play in Monday’s home game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Hunter had a non-surgical procedure on Monday to address articular wear and tear in his right knee.
Hunter left Friday night’s 116-100 win at Washington after hurting the knee. His status will be reviewed next week.
Hunter is averaging 17.2 points and 5.4 rebounds as a complement to Atlanta’s top scorer, point guard Trae Young.
