Trae Young has been the supreme leader for Atlanta Hawks in the 2020-21 NBA season. More importantly in the playoffs against New York Knicks and now, Philadelphia 76ers.

During the pre-game warm up Trae Young was evidently seen walking around with a pad around his shoulders.
Early in Game 4 of the Hawks’ series with the Philadelphia 76ers, Young struggled mightily and was even spotted getting his right shoulder treated. The 22-year-old sharpshooter had a wrap around his shoulder, which was certainly a troubling scene for Atlanta Hawks fans hoping for a win to tie the series.
