The Atlanta Hawks run to the Eastern Conference Finals was as improbable as it was impressive. To take two games against the eventual champs, with or without their best player, is nothing to sneeze at. As any Hawks fan will tell you they weren’t exactly at full strength either with Trae Young dealing with a foot injury at the end among others.
There are many things that can help the Hawks be better next season and health is certainly one of them. Injuries wiped out much of the regular and postseason for De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish while Bogdan Bogdanovic dealt with an avulsion fracture in his knee.
