The Atlanta Hawks kicked off training camp earlier this week, and have begun ramping up in preparation for Monday’s preseason opener in Miami vs. the Heat. There have been a few developments on the injury maintenance/rehab front early in Hawks camp, as there are a few guys to keep an eye on for the time being.
In what feels like good news, third-year forward De’Andre Hunter was able to go through all of practice with the team on Wednesday per Hawks head coach Nate McMillan. Hunter said on Monday to reporters that he was feeling close to 100%.
Rookie forward Jalen Johnson, who was reportedly seen with his right foot wrapped around his ankle Tuesday after a fall, participated in most of practice on Wednesday per McMillan.
Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot arrived and practiced with the team for the first time also on Wednesday, he was a bit late to camp due to visa issues per Hawks President/GM Travis Schlenk. Luwawau-Cabarrot will be in contention with Jahlil Okafor and potentially others for Atlanta’s final open roster spot.
Clint Capela and Kevin Huerter will both hopefully be ramping up at some point, as they are the guys who seem the most limited so far.
