Trae Young out vs. Nets, Brandon Goodwin to start at point guard

Trae Young is officially out for the Hawks’ game vs. the Nets Sunday night in Brooklyn.

Young is out with left hamstring pain. According to Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce, Young’s hamstring was sore when the team practiced yesterday and he received treatment, but was still sore when arriving in New York.

Fortunately for the Hawks, after struggling without a reliable backup point guard for the first portion of the season, two-way player Brandon Goodwin has emerged in recent weeks as the go-to option behind Young and will start Sunday alongside Cam Reddish, Kevin Huerter, De’Andre Hunter and John Collins.
