Young, who has been the backbone of a rebuilding Hawks squad since joining the league last season, has averaged 29.2 points per game this year, the third-highest mark in the league entering play Thursday.
In addition to having to run the offense, Young has made himself one of the league’s more dynamic players through his deft shooting touch and his willingness to fire from nearly anywhere inside of half-court.
The Hawks will be back on the court on Friday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
