Head coach Lloyd Pierce will return to Atlanta Hawks for Tuesday night’s road game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, as relayed by Sarah K. Spence of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Pierce was forced to miss the Hawks’ win over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday because of the league’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
The Hawks (13-17) have won two of three following a four-game losing streak. They will be without guard/forward Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee), point guard Kris Dunn (ankle) and of course, small forward De’Andre Hunter (knee surgery).
The Cavs (10-21) have lost 10 straight, including a stinker Sunday at home vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder.
