Lucas Nogueira reportedly in Los Angeles to have knees examined

USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Hawks draft pick Lucas Nogueira has reportedly traveled to Los Angeles to have his knees examined.

Per reports, Lucas Nogueira is in Los Angeles where he will have his ailing knees examined. Nogueira had his contract with his Spanish club Estudiantes suspended last week so that he could seek outside council on the knee issues he is dealing with.

Nogueira missed some time earlier this season with what was reported as a hamstring injury but has apparently battled knee issues all season. One report suggests that the knee issues are a result of a "very busy summer" that included draft workouts and the summer league schedule. Nogueira has continued to try and reshape his body in an effort to be ready to play in the NBA as soon as next season.
