  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Returns to NBA

    The Hawks recalled Bufkin from the G League's College Park Skyhawks on Saturday.

    Bufkin will be available for Saturday's game versus the Cavaliers. The rookie guard has made just two NBA appearances so far this season, but he's been excelling in the G League of late and could crack the rotation if Trae Young (illness) ends up missing a second straight contest.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Cleared to play

    Bufkin (thumb) has been cleared to play in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

    Bufkin fractured his thumb in early November and has been sidelined since. There's no guarantee he sees the floor right away, but the Hawks may need to look his way with Dejounte Murray questionable to play with a forearm contusion.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Could make return Saturday

    Bufkin (thumb) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

    After fracturing his left thumb in early November, Bufkin was fully cleared for practice Wednesday and will have his first chance to make a return. While he'll likely have his minutes monitored if available, Bufkin could see more playing time if Dejounte Murray (forearm) sits.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Returns to full practice

    The Hawks announced Wednesday that Bufkin (thumb) has been cleared to return to full team practice, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

    Bufkin sustained a left thumb injury in early November that was expected to sideline him for at least two months, but it's encouraging that he's back at practice a full capacity. He'll presumably need to work on ramping up before he returns to game action.

    Bufkin is expected to miss 8-10 weeks due to his thumb fracture, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Suffers left thumb fracture

    Bufkin sustained a left thumb fracture while practicing with the G League's College Park Skyhawks on Friday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Bufkin wasn't a significant part of Atlanta's rotation early in the regular season and was practicing with the G League club recently to work on his development. However, he'll now be unavailable for at least two weeks. Once he's cleared to return to game action, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 20-year-old ramp up in the G League.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Struggles from deep in pro debut

    Bufkin scored nine points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt), one assist and one rebound over 18 minutes in Tuesday's 108-107 win over the Cavaliers.

    The 15th overall pick of the 2023 NBA Draft struggled with his shooting in the NBA Summer League and that continued in his first preseason game. He also finished with a margin of minus-nine -- the fourth worst on the team -- and a team-leading four personal fouls. Bufkin will look for a better outing Thursday against the Grizzlies at home.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Scores 18 in loss

    Bufkin posted 18 points (7-18 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist, one steal and a block across 23 minutes during Sunday's 101-80 loss to the Mavericks.

    Bufkin continues to struggle to score efficiently, missing all six of his three-point attempts and shooting 38.8 percent from the floor. Despite his offensive struggles, Bufkin showed promise on the defensive end, recording a steal and a block while taking multiple charges. The 15th overall pick will likely be a depth piece at the guard position for Atlanta to start his rookie campaign.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Struggles with efficiency

    Bufkin amassed 13 points (3-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 99-93 win over the Timberwolves.

    Bufkin has struggled with his efficiency throughout his Summer League campaign. The Michigan product will likely come off the bench to begin the season and might be eased into a larger role as his efficiency and comfortability at the NBA level increase.
