UPDATE: Trae Young will NOT play in Sunday’s game. De’Andre Hunter will play and start.
The Atlanta Hawks will complete a weekend road trip on Sunday evening in Brooklyn. Following a disappointing loss on Friday in the nation’s capital, the Hawks aim to stop a three-game losing skid but, with news breaking in the Nets’ favor on Saturday, the task could be a bit tougher for Atlanta.
Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement) is expected to return to action for the Nets — he is officially listed as probable — and it will be the first appearance for the star guard since mid-November.
