he Atlanta Hawks return home from their season-long eight-game road trip on Sunday to host the Golden State Warriors, but who knows how healthy either team will be.
The Hawks went 4-4 on the trip but played short-handed on the final stop in New Orleans and still emerged with a 126-103 win over the Pelicans.
Atlanta was without all five players who made up its starting lineup in the season opener — leading scorer Trae Young (left knee soreness), Danilo Gallinari (left Achilles soreness), John Collins (left ankle sprain), De’Andre Hunter (right knee soreness) and Cam Reddish, who has missed 19 games with a right Achilles injury.
Atlanta interim coach Nate McMillan said it was just a gutty effort by his limited roster.
“We wanted to pretty much approach this game as if it was the fourth quarter,” McMillan said. “We needed to dig deep and be strong.”
Said center Clint Capela said: “We just take it as a challenge. I know it’s a marathon. It’s a long journey. My head is just trying to keep up with it; do what I do. Try to block out, rebounds, running and just stay focused on all the things that I do best.”
Atlanta has been helped through the injuries by contributions from Bogdan Bogdanovic, who is averaging 25.3 points and shooting 58.3 percent on 3-pointers over the last three games, and Kevin Huerter, who scored a season-high 24 against New Orleans after being held scoreless against San Antonio the previous game
