The Hawks' first-round pick Lucas Nogueira will return to play with Estudiantes next week after taking some time off to have his knees assessed.

Nogueira had his contract with the Spanish ACB team suspended back on Dec. 10 to seek help with his knees, which turned out to be tendinitis. He spent some time having rehab in Atlanta and Los Angeles and hopefully now will be good to go for the rest of the Estudiantes season, which ends May 25.
