Hawks’ Young sidelined with calf contusion, out vs. Nets


ATLANTA (AP) — Hawks guard Trae Young has been scratched from Wednesday’s starting lineup against Brooklyn with a left calf contusion. Atlanta is also without starting center Clint Capela, who has a right calf strain, and starting forward De’Andre Hunter, who has a left ankle sprain. Young led the NBA last season in total points and total assists. He ranks 11th this season with a 27.3 scoring average and second in assists with a 9.9 average. Capela is fourth with a 11.9 rebounding average. Young was injured in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s 129-114 loss at Indiana and did not return.
