Hawks’ Young sprains ankle, won’t return against Milwaukee

Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young left the game with a right ankle sprain late in the second quarter and did not return against Milwaukee

Hawks guard Trae Young had to be helped off the floor and was ruled out for the rest of the game after spraining his right ankle late in the second quarter Friday night.

Young was dribbling when he went down in the lane against Milwaukee. He wasn’t able to put much weight on his right leg while Kevin Huerter and John Collins lifted his arms over their shoulders and escorted him to the sideline.

From there, Vince Carter and a team trainer helped him into the locker room.

Young began the game ranked fourth in the NBA with 29 points per game. He scored 12 against the Bucks.

Atlanta trailed 63-40 at halftime.
