Hawks' guard Dejounte Murray has been suspended for the team's Game 5 against Boston after making contact with an official following their loss on Sunday. (Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Murray was visibly upset which led to him approaching and then making contact with an official shortly after the final buzzer in Game 4. The confrontation will now cost the Hawks' star Game 5, where he will be forced to watch from home. It is a major blow to an Atlanta team that is already on the ropes against Boston. The likes of Bogdan Bogdanovic and Saddiq Bey will need to step up in Murray's absence if the Hawks expect to steal a Game 5 win on Tuesday.
