Huerter started in place of De’Andre Hunter, who had surgery on his right wrist to repair a tendon injury today and will miss approximately eight weeks. Before he exited the game, Huerter tallied four points, five rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes. Solomon Hill started the third quarter for the Hawks with Huerter out.
After the game, Hawks coach Nate McMillan said Huerter was experiencing tightness and didn’t want to pull a muscle, and will receive treatment. Fortunately, the Hawks will have an off-day Tuesday, coming off a back-to-back.
