He was assigned to the G-League again in January as part of the recovery process and featured in the Bayhawks’ 111-110 loss to the Canton Charge on Jan. 19, where he scored eight points in 13 minutes. Bembry did not feature in the Bayhawks’ next game against the Delaware 87ers before being recalled back to Atlanta.
