NBA Injury News
7:40 p.m. ET Update: Cam Reddish, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Kevin Huerter were all cleared to play ahead of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Hawks head coach Nate McMillan stated Reddish has yet to participate in 5-on-5 drills, and Tony Snell and Solomon Hill are currently ahead of Reddish in the rotation. There was no word of a minute limitation for Bogdanovic, but he has not played more than 29 minutes in the last three game.
Kevin Huerter has been added to the injury report with a sore left ankle and is listed as probable for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday. He is coming off his best postseason performance with 27 points in 40 minutes in the Game 7 win.
Cam Reddish has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Game 1 after being sidelined since February due to a right Achilles procedure. There is no word on how limited he’ll be if he’s able to suit up, but his presence would provide a boost if Bogdanovic is downgraded.
Nate McMillan said Bogdan Bogdanovic is still dealing with a sore right knee, and the team won’t know his availability until closer to tip-off on Wednesday. Bogdanovic was limited over the final three games of the second round and Solomon Hill has seen rotation minutes with Bogdanovic hampered.
