Charles Barkley is a hilarious man, even when he isn’t trying to be.
On Tuesday, the Atlanta Hawks had terrible news to deliver as Trae Young has been ruled out of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday with a deep bone bruise in his right foot.
With 36 seconds remaining in the third quarter of Game 3 on Sunday, Young inadvertently stepped on the right foot of referee Sean Wright.
About an our before tip-off, Barkley had a solution for the Hawks. Start Jeff Teague in his place.
Only problem there — He plays for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Teague last played for the Hawks in 2019.
