Gerald Bourguet: Monty Williams praised Harrison Barnes, who’s averaging 28.3 PPG so far this season: “He’s scoring at an elite level, and he’s doing it in transition.” Notes that limiting him and De’Aaron Fox on the break will be important tonight

Cassidy Hubbarth: David Griffin told me that Zion is expected to get scans on his right foot by the end of this week & that will dictate how they progress from one stage to the next. Right now he hasn’t been cleared to play, he is doing one on none, no explosive work, running just straight lines.
Atlanta Hawks PR: With his fourth point tonight, Trae Young has 5,000 points for his career in his 208th game, becoming the fastest player in Hawks franchise history to reach that total. The five fastest are Young, Pettit (212), Pete Maravich (218), Joe Johnson (227) and Dominique Wilkins (230).
