Hawks’ Hunter (knee) to miss at least 1 game


ATLANTA — De’Andre Hunter, who has emerged as the Atlanta Hawks‘ second-leading scorer in his second season, will miss at least one game with a knee injury.

The Hawks said Saturday that Hunter will not play in Monday’s home game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Hunter had a non-surgical procedure Saturday to address articular wear and tear in his right knee.

Hunter left Friday’s 116-100 win at Washington after hurting the knee. His status will be reviewed next week.

The 23-year-old Hunter is averaging 17.2 points and 5.4 rebounds per game as a complement to Atlanta’s top scorer, point guard Trae Young (27.0 PPG).
