The Atlanta Hawks have had a pretty impressive season considering they had to re-tool in the offseason and lost star center Al Horford for the year.

Sitting third in the Eastern Conference, the Hawks made their way to Milwaukee on Saturday night where they took on the Bucks.

Point guard Jeff Teague had to leave the game due to injury, which opened up playing time for rookie guard Dennis Schröder.

The rookie made his way onto the floor and played a few minutes before an oddity was notice. Schroder was wearing his practice shorts during the game.

The 20-year-old from Germany checked into the game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, a game he got an opportunity to play in thanks in part to the injury of Jeff Teague, still dressed in his practice shorts.

Unlike many teams, the Hawks wear similar colored shorts in practice and during games so it was an understandable mistake but he clearly stood out with the white piping down the side of the shorts.

The Hawks equipment manager went and got Schroder’s game shorts out of the locker room and the rookie changed during the next stoppage in play.
