(SL) – Hope Coach Bud Is Okay! He was wearing a soft cast Tuesday as he recovered from surgery for a broken finger, which made for an especially scary moment during Atlanta’s preseason game against the Pelicans.
Pelicans’ Langston Galloway chased after a loose ball out of bounds, he collided directly with Budenholzer and knocked him over near press row. Coach visibly in pain left the game and didn’t return.
The Hawks went on to win the game 96-89 and were led by Timmy J who had 16 pts.
