Neither Trae Young nor Giannis Antetokounmpo finished Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, and their status going forward is uncertain for a series now tied between their Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks.
Young was ruled out prior to tipoff with the deep bone bruise he suffered in his right foot in Game 3, and Antetokounmpo hyperextended his left knee in the third quarter of Tuesday’s contest. With the East’s two remaining superstars joining the growing list of impactful injuries in these NBA playoffs, the undermanned Hawks outgunned the shellshocked Bucks 110-88 to even the series, 2-2, heading back to Milwaukee.
Reporting with @Malika_Andrews: Hawks star Trae Young is out for Game 4 vs. Bucks with a deep bone bruise in his right foot. Young exhausted every avenue to try and find a way to return to play, but a severe lack of mobility and significant degree of pain made it impossible.
