MILWAUKEE — The Atlanta Hawks' Trae Young is now out of Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday with a deep bone bruise on his right foot, according to ESPN.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Malika Andrews report that "Young exhausted every avenue to try and find a way to return to play, but a severe lack of mobility and significant degree of pain made it impossible."

On Monday, the Hawks announced Young had been listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

Young suffered the injury during Sunday's Game 3 in which the Bucks powered past the Hawks to a 113-102 win, a victory that puts the Bucks up 2-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Hawks star guard appears to have rolled his ankle on the foot of an NBA referee, who was standing out of bounds. Young fell to the ground and received treatment, but returned to the game with just under 9 minutes left.

The Bucks are set to play the Hawks in Game 4 in Atlanta Tuesday. Tip off is 7:30 p.m.
