Trae Young will miss at least the next four weeks while recovering from a torn ligament in his left pinkie finger. The Hawks announced that the All-Star point guard will undergo surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York on Tuesday. After the four weeks, he will be re-evaluated. He suffered the injury during Friday’s loss to Toronto.

“You feel awful for Trae more than anything,” Hawks coach Quin Snyder said as noted by ESPN. “It is going to be a challenge for him not to be out there.” The absence comes as several key players for the Hawks have gotten hurt. “You have to adapt,” Snyder added. “That happened when we lost Jalen [Johnson]. We have to have minutes from Kobe [Bufkin] and Patty [Mills] and we obviously know what (Dejounte Murray) can do. I don’t want to wallow in anything.”

Atlanta is currently competing for a spot in the play-in games in the Eastern Conference as the regular season enters its second half. Young begins his recovery period while leading the team with 26.4 points and 10.8 assists per game. Snyder says the lineup will be “fluid” in his absence. “This will be fluid. If Boji starts, we lose his punch off the bench,” the coach said. “Do you want him stabilizing the second unit? There’s a lot of things that go into it. We will approach it that way.”
