Hawks’ Kobe Bufkin was spotted in a boot after suffering a toe injury

Atlanta Hawks rookie guard Kobe Bufkin missed his second consecutive game on Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers after sustaining a toe injury.

The Hawks announced this week that Bufkin is dealing with left big toe soreness. He was seen in a boot on the bench in their 112-101 victory over the Cavaliers, according to Lauren L. Williams of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

His status for the Hawks’ next game on Friday in Memphis isn’t known.

Atlanta, who was also without Trae Young (finger) and Onyeka Okongwu (toe) on Wednesday, posted its second straight win behind 23-point performances from both Saddiq Bey and Bogdan Bogdanovic to maintain ground in the play-in race.

Bufkin recently entered the rotation after spending most of the season in the G League with the College Park Skyhawks, with Young sidelined indefinitely. He is averaging six points, 3.5 assists and two rebounds over his last four games, including a career-high 12 points on Feb. 29.
