UPDATE: Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic will be out roughly two weeks before his sprained right ankle is re-evaluated, the team announced Monday (PHT).
Forward Cam Reddish, who like Bogdanovic was injured in Sunday’s (PHT) loss to the Knicks, is day-to-day depending on how his sprained left wrist responds to treatment.
As other teams in the Eastern Conference have struggled with injuries, the Hawks had begun to jell, rolling up seven straight wins entering Sunday’s (PHT) 99-90 loss to the Knicks.
But the Hawks took not only an L in the game, but also lost a pair of key contributors, with Bogdan Bogdanovic (right ankle sprain) and Cam Reddish (left wrist sprain) exiting early. Reddish left immediately after injuring his wrist in the second quarter, and Bogdanovic followed soon after, with a halftime announcement that he’d also be on the bench for the remainder.
Head coach Nate MacMillan told reporters postgame that both players had negative X-rays, but were headed for Sunday MRIs: “You hate to see that. We’re hoping that MRIs come out negative and these guys can get back to the floor soon… They want to take a closer look with both injuries.”
