John Jenkins has been recalled by the Atlanta Hawks from the NBA D-League according to a report by the AJC's Chris Vivlamore.

The move has yet to be officially announced but makes sense given the recent injury to Shelvin Mack. Jenkins took part in the D-League Showcase over the weekend and scored 28 points in Monday's loss to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Idaho doesn't resume its schedule until Friday so the opportunity was there to bring Jenkins back for a little emergency depth.
Jenkins appeared in six games with the Stampede. He's played 11 total games in the D-League this season and is averaging 18 points per game on 54 percent shooting. Jenkins has appeared in three games with the Hawks this season and is averaging 4.0 points per contest.
