Young scored 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-2 FT) to go with 11 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 41 minutes Saturday in the Nets' Game 3 win over the Hawks.

Young bounced back from a terrible 1-for-7 shooting performance in Game 2, taking on a more aggressive role in the offense Saturday, and after the Nets were able to take home the win with Young playing a bigger role on offense, he'll likely be on the attack Monday. Coach Lionel Hollins has shortened his rotation to primarily just seven players, so Young seems in line to get huge minutes again Monday.

Young (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game versus the Pacers, The Record reports.

Young has missed two contests in a row due to a hyperextended left knee, but at least his status has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable. Since arriving in Brooklyn at the trade deadline, he's averaged 13.6 points (on 50 percent shooting), 5.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 0.9 three-pointers in 28 minutes. If he isn't given a chance to uphold that standard, Bojan Bogdanovic is the best bet to pick up available work.

Young hyperextended his knee Wednesday day and had to be helped off the court. While it's nothing that will keep him out long-term, he could miss a handful of games as the Nets battle for a playoff spot in the East. In his absence Bojan Bogdanovic figures to pick up some extra minutes.
