Atlanta Hawks Guard Officially Suspended For Game 5

While the Atlanta Hawks have managed to take one game from the Boston Celtics in their first round series thus far, they find themselves facing elimination in Game 5, and will now do so without one of their most important players.

On Monday, it was announced that massive off-season acquisition Dejounte Murray has officially been suspended for Game 5 after making contact with an official during their Game 4 loss, with the Hawks right on the verge of elimination. 

Murray may have had a solid first campaign with Atlanta, but unfortunately, this team clearly isn't built to win in 2023, and now, it appears that unless they can get a heroic performance out of Trae Young, their 2023 campaign is likely coming to an end with this suspension.
