The Atlanta Hawks will travel to play the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday night in what will be their third of four preseason games ahead of the regular season. The Hawks lost a Wednesday evening matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Trae Young and Clint Capela we’re both out Wednesday, and Capela will be out again Saturday in Memphis. Atlanta (0-2) will look for the first win of their preseason vs. the Grizzlies.

Memphis won their first preseason game over the Milwaukee Bucks 87-77. Both teams will look to continue tooling their rosters with an eye on the regular season. Coaches will get a chance to see all of their depth with many key players on each side either out altogether or playing less minutes than they typically would if it weren’t preseason.

Injury Reports

De’Andre Hunter (right knee injury management) and Kevin Huerter (ankle) are questionable for the Hawks on Wednesday. Trae Young (right quad contusion) and Delon Wright (ankle) are doubtful.

Bogdan Bogdanovic, who the Hawks rested Wednesday vs. Cleveland, is no longer listed on the report, while Clint Capela (left Achilles injury management) and Onyeka Okongwu (shoulder) are again out.

Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., Dillon Brooks, Killian Tillie, Steven Adams, Kyle Anderson and others are currently listed as out as of Saturday morning for Memphis.
