Bembry was assigned to the D-League on Wednesday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The rookie out of Saint Joe's has played only sparingly off the bench through the first month of the season, so he'll head to the D-League for an opportunity to see increased minutes in a real game setting. With Bembry temporarily off the roster, Mike Scott is expected to return to active duty, though it's unclear if he'll play.
