Trae Young balled out on Friday, dropping 26 points on 7-of-20 shooting, including two threes, with two rebounds, 16 assists and one steal.
Young missed Wednesday's game with a right thigh contusion, but was left out of the Hawks' injury report coming into this game, so it's safe to say that he's ready to rock – unless his huge game was not enough to convince you of that. Young has matched expectations with top-25 value so far this season, sometimes flirting with the top-15 zone. He's a fantastic young star who will surely only get better with each passing season.

Trae Young is no longer on the injury report with a right thigh contusion, and he is all set to face the Thunder on Friday.
Young should be well-rested and ready to go in this one. Before sitting out Wednesday he looked as good as ever with a 42-point and 15-assist effort on Monday. Activate him with confidence.

Trae Young (right thigh contusion) went through some portions of Thursday's practice but is considered to be questionable for Friday's game against the Thunder.
Young missed Wednesday's game against the Clippers, and although participating in portions of practice is an improvement, he is not in the clear just yet. Continue to monitor the situation as the day rolls along. If Young can't go, Jeff Teague would be in line for another start.

Trae Young (right thigh contusion) will not play in against the Clippers on Wednesday.
Young went off for 42 points, 15 assists and six rebounds on Monday night, so this news comes as a bummer for fantasy owners. Expect newcomer Jeff Teague to get the start at PG while he and Kevin Huerter handle the majority of the ball-handling and playmaking responsibilities in this one.

Trae Young scored 42 points (11-of-20 FG, 18-of-21 FT) with six rebounds and 15 assists.
Young is matchup proof, so we hope you used him in DFS today. He might be having the most underrated season this side of Devin Booker, so congratulations are in order if you knew to reach for him early in drafts. He's as solid a 1st round value as it gets, turnovers be damned, and he figures to keep it going all season barring injury. Of course, Young has also proven that he's willing to play through injuries, so there's really nothing stopping him from being an elite fantasy player now and into the future.

Trae Young scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting to go with seven assists and eight rebounds in a 136-103 blowout loss to the Pistons on Saturday.
Young struggled from the floor but did enough elsewhere to salvage his fantasy night. Young has been a first-round player since the beginning of the calendar year and should finish inside the top-20 this season.

Trae Young shot 10-of-16 from the field in Friday's road victory on his way to 31 points, five rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers.
Young has had two outstanding games since returning from a minor hamstring injury and he'll be an early-round player in just his second season in the league. The Hawks have a chance to boast two top-20 fantasy players between Young and John Collins, who put up 18 & 10 in this win over the Spurs.

Trae Young (left hamstring) returned from a one-game absence and picked up where he left off in Tuesday's 123-110 win over the Suns, dropping 36 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer.
It certainly looks like Young is recovered from his minor injury. Expect the good times to keep rolling, especially if the Hawks can figure out a way to start stringing some wins together.

Trae Young (hamstring) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Suns.
Young has dealt with various injuries this season but has only missed four games as a result. Young is a top-20/10 player in 9/8 cat leagues for the season. Continue to fire up the dynamic guard in all leagues.

Trae Young went through shootaround this morning and he is expected to play against the Suns on Tuesday.
This is excellent news as Young only missed the game on Sunday. He has been tremendous this year and owners should be happy to deploy him back to their lineups.

Trae Young (left hamstring pain) is considered questionable to play on Tuesday.
Young sat out of Sunday's game and now he could miss another. His 28.9 points per game rank fourth in the NBA. DeAndre' Bembry played 22 minutes against the Nets in Young's absence.

Trae Young (left hamstring pain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Nets.
This doesn't seem like anything serious, but the Hawks are opting to play it safe with their star. DeAndre' Bembry should get a little more time at point and may even draw the start if De'Andre Hunter is forced to miss as well.

Trae Young (left hamstring pain) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.
We didn't notice Young getting injured in the last game, but it explains his cold shooting on Friday. The questionable tag seems legitimate and we would advise you to check back in after the afternoon report comes out. Young is cruising with first-round value in 8-cat leagues while sitting just outside the top 25 in 9-cat, but you knew his TOs would be bad when you drafted him. He's been injured twice this season only to beat his timetables handily and he's been able to play through minor nicks all year, so we'd be surprised to see him sit this one out.

Trae Young suffered through a rare cold-shooting night on Friday, accumulating 19 points (7-for-20 shooting), seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.
Young's inability to get his shot going is a big reason why the Wizards ultimately lost this game. Fortunately for fantasy players, he was still able to salvage a productive line. Continue to fire him up as a top option at point guard for fantasy.
