Luke Walton has been coaching for Steve Kerr in Golden State.

Now, another assistant will temporarily move to the top chair.

Hawks release:

President of Basketball Operations/Head Coach Mike Budenholzer returned to Atlanta earlier this morning due to a family emergency. We ask that you respect the private nature of the situation. Assistant Coach Kenny Atkinson will serve as head coach tonight in Boston.

Hopefully, everything turns out well for Budenholzer and his family and he can return soon.
