NBA.com staff report

Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young is on track to return to the lineup on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time), according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Hawks' second-year guard sprained his right ankle against the Miami Heat last week. Young is expected to practice with the Hawks today, and will return to the lineup against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) barring any setback, per Wojnarowski.

Young was dominant before the injury, with averages of 26.8 points, 7.3 assists and 5.0 rebounds over his first four games. He was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for Week 1.
