Huerter has shown he belongs on the floor for Atlanta

Huerter has shown he belongs on the floor for Atlanta

The rookie out of Maryland is immediately a major part of Atlanta’s plans. The Atlanta Hawks selected Kevin Huerter with the No. 19 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, using the first-round selection acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves as a result of the Adreian Payne trade. The pick was protected in case Minnesota did not make the playoffs, but on the last day of the 2017-18 NBA season, the Timberwolves beat the Denver Nuggets to secure the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs, thus sending the pick to the Hawks. Hawks fans probably hope the fortunes similarly fall that...

Preview: Hawks hit the road for quick trip to Charlotte

Preview: Hawks hit the road for quick trip to Charlotte

On the road again. The Atlanta Hawks picked up an impressive win on Saturday night, outlasting the Miami Heat in an offense-driven battle. After a two-day break from game action, the Hawks are back on the road on Tuesday, with a match-up against the Charlotte Hornets on the first night of a back-to-back set. The Hawks will likely be without starting small forward Taurean Prince in this spot, as the third-year player is listed as doubtful with an ankle sprain suffered against Miami. In his absence, head coach Lloyd Pierce will likely deploy Kevin Huerter and DeAndre’ Bembry in larger...

Kevin Huerter questionable for Saturday’s game against Heat

The latest on the rookie wing. Thursday evening wasn’t kind to the Atlanta Hawks, as the home team fell to the Sacramento Kings by a 31-point margin. While that kind of blowout isn’t fun for anyone, things were made worse for the Hawks by the early exit of first round pick Kevin Huerter, who was forced to the sideline after suffering an ankle injury in the first quarter. In the moment, the Hawks announced that Huerter suffered a right lateral ankle sprain and he did not return to the action. However, a breath of fresh air came to light on Friday afternoon, as the team officially...

Kevin Huerter forced to exit Kings game with ankle injury

Not great. Rookie guard Kevin Huerter is already entrenched in the rotation for the Atlanta Hawks and the former Maryland standout is showing plenty of flashes of the talent that made him a 2018 first round pick. Unfortunately, the 20-year-old wing was forced to exit Thursday’s game against the Sacramento Kings early, after he suffered what the team described as a right lateral ankle sprain. Huerter collided with Kings guard Buddy Hield in the first quarter, as the pair was pursuing a loose ball. Immediately, it was clear that Hield’s actions were less than spectacular. Here’s a...

First round picks enjoy successful run in Hawks win over Cavs

A closer look at the youngsters. The No. 5 overall pick of the Atlanta Hawks received a lot of the buzz coming off the team’s first win of the season in Cleveland on Sunday, and it’s understandable given the 35 points and 11 assists Trae Young amassed in the contest. However, the game also offered the very first glimpse of all three of the Hawks’ rookies acquired in the first round of the 2018 NBA draft on the floor together for extended time. Kevin Huerter played only in garbage time in the season opener in New York and Omari Spellman missed Friday’s in game in Memphis due to a...
