Sadly, it appears that the injury bug has bitten De’Andre Hunter again:
Hawks‘ De’Andre Hunter will undergo surgery on a tendon injury in his right wrist and miss approximately two months.

If there is a silver lining to this, it isn’t a lower body injury to Hunter, but that’s about where the positives end. Hunter had been playing fantastic defense and was coming off a 26-point explosion against the Nets on November 3rd. Dre was also having his best season as a shooter, canning 39.5% of his threes and shooting 45% from the floor. Thankfully, it isn’t a season-ending injury, but the hits keep coming for the Hawks. Outside of a big win against the Bucks last night, it feels like they can’t catch much of a break to start this season.
Get well soon, Dre.
