The Atlanta Hawks provided the following injury update to second-year forward, De'Andre Hunter:
"D. Hunter will undergo a lateral meniscus arthroscopic debridement procedure on Monday. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Kyle Hammond, the Hawks’ team orthopaedist. An update on his recovery plan will be provided in approximately two weeks."
Hunter has missed the team's previous four games because of a right knee injury and will now elect to get surgery. Cam Reddish and Danilo Gallinari should see an increased role with Hunter sidelined.
