CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Atlanta Hawks guard/forward DeAndre’ Bembry has a fracture in his right wrist.

He will return to Atlanta following Friday night’s game in Charlotte against the Hornets and meet with team physicians from Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center on Monday.

It’s unclear how long the second-year player will be out. His status will then be updated Monday, according to the team.

Bembry did not suit up against the Hornets.

“We just may play some other guys more, we may use some of the young guys,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said before Friday night’s game. “We’ll just figure it out tonight and as we move forward. I don’t think there’s anything guaranteed for anybody, it’s unfortunate for Deandre and for us.”
