Hawks to be without Devin Harris until Wednesday; Jenkins until Saturday

The Hawks will be without guard Devin Harris (foot) until Wednesday when the Hawks go on the road to take on the Sixers. John Jenkins plans to return from his concussion tomorrow against the Spurs.

Devin Harris and John Jenkins both took part in pre-game workouts tonight prior to the Sixers game, but neither will be available. Jenkins told me that he expects to be back tomorrow when the Hawks take on the San Antonio Spurs on the road, and Larry Drew confirmed that being the plan. Jenkins has been out since Friday, March 29th after he suffered a mild concussion. The Hawks have followed league concussion protocol and Jenkins has passed all of the tests up to this point. He will be evaluated once more on Friday night before being officially cleared to play.

Devin Harris (sore left foot) has been out three of the last five games and will miss two more games before he plans to return to action. I spoke with Harris after his workout and he said that he will not play this evening or in San Antonio tomorrow night (he will most likely not even travel with the team), but he told me he will be back Wednesday in Philadelphia. Drew said he hopes Harris will return next week, and Wednesday would mark eight full days of rest since he played last (Monday, August 1st). Harris has been a vital part of the Hawks success this season (HawksHoop's Bo Churney wrote about that this morning), especially since Lou Williams' season-ending ACL injury, and the Hawks will be careful with his injury to be sure he is available in the playoffs.
