Latest Injury Update for Cavaliers vs. Hawks game

The Cleveland Cavaliers start the last part of the regular season in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. This means that they are sure to make the playoffs because they are in the top six. They probably won’t go down, since the fifth-place Brooklyn Nets have lost a lot of players and the Knicks and Miami Heat are too far behind to catch them.

  • Donovan Mitchell – Active

Donovan Mitchell is ready for this game, Cavs star had a string of bad games after being out for a short time with a groin injury in late January, but he’s back in the swing of things now.

He averaged 33.3 points (on 55.1 percent shooting from the field and 90.1 percent shooting from the line), 6.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 4.0 three-pointers, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks in 37.8 minutes over his last four games of the first half before the All-Star break.

Injury reports Cavaliers:

  • Ricky Rubio (Knee) – Questionable

Rubio had been sick before the All-Star break, but he seems to have gotten better during the long break. But he will still miss Cleveland’s next game, which is the first of two in a row, to take care of his surgically repaired knee. The veteran point guard should be able to play against Atlanta on Friday.

The Atlanta Hawks are in eighth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 29-30 as the stretch run begins. They might have thought that they should be higher than 8th and just below. 500 at this point, since getting Dejounte Murray was such a big deal in the off-season. So Nate McMillan, the coach, took the blame and was fired right before the all-star break.

  • Will Trae Young playing today?

Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks’ official site says that Trae Young (personal) is not on the injury report for Friday’s game against the Cavaliers.

Young was excused from practice Thursday for personal reasons, but he won’t have to miss Friday’s game.

He was great before the All-Star break. Before the break, he had five straight double-doubles, averaging 24.0 points, 14.0 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.0 steals in 34.6 minutes per game.

If he can’t play on Friday, Aaron Holiday and Vit Krejci could get some extra playing time.

Injury reports Hawks:

Collins will not play Friday against Cleveland because he has a concussion, says Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks’ official site.

Collins was put in the concussion protocol by the NBA on Saturday and couldn’t get out of it during the All-Star break. Sunday, against Brooklyn, will be his next chance to play.
