Barring a setback in practice Monday, Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young is expected to return from a right ankle sprain for Tuesday’s game against San Antonio, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Sources said Young plans to practice Monday for the first time since suffering the injury last Tuesday night. He was injured when he landed on the foot of Miami’s Justise Winslow.
The Hawks have played just one game since then — a loss to the Heat in the second game of a home-and-home on Halloween night.
In his second season, Young is averaging 26.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists.
Young, 21, was second in the Rookie of the Year voting to Dallas’ Luka Doncic last season.
