ATLANTA -- The Hawks have lost All-Star point guard Trae Young for at least four weeks with a torn ligament in his left pinkie finger.

The Hawks announced the injury Sunday. Young was hurt during Friday night's loss to Toronto and will have surgery Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

The team said Young will be evaluated in four weeks.

"You feel awful for Trae more than anything," Hawks coach Quin Snyder said. "It is going to be a challenge for him not to be out there."

The loss of Young comes as the Hawks, fighting for the final play-in spot in the Eastern Conference, are facing front-line depth issues as center Onyeka Okongwu recovers from a sprained left toe. Snyder said Thursday that Okongwu is not going to be available for the foreseeable future.

"You have to adapt," Snyder said. "That happened when we lost Jalen [Johnson]. We have to have minutes from Kobe [Bufkin] and Patty [Mills] and we obviously know what [Dejounte Murray] can do. I don't want to wallow in anything."

The Hawks entered Sunday 2-3 in games Young missed this season and went on to trounce the Orlando Magic 109-92.

Young, who made his third All-Star team this year, leads Atlanta with his averages of 26.4 points and 10.8 assists per game. Murray likely will assume primary ballhandling duties with Young sidelined and stepped up Sunday night, finishing with 25 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds, just short of his first triple-double of the season. His 11 assists tied a season high.

"We don't have any excuses. This is the NBA," Murray said. "Obviously, we want him to get back as soon as he can. But while he's out, next man up. That's it. There's opportunities for guys to show why they are in the NBA."

Bogdan Bogdanovic took Young's spot in the starting lineup for Sunday night's game. In 46 games as a reserve, Bogdanovic averaged 16.8 points. He contributed 17 in the win.

"This will be fluid. If Boji starts, we lose his punch off the bench," Snyder said. "Do you want him stabilizing the second unit? There's a lot of things that go into it. We will approach it that way."
