Jack (knee) was waived by the Hawks on Thursday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. It was recently confirmed that Jack wouldn't be ready for the start of the regular season, as he's still working his way back from a torn ACL that required surgery back in January. He's yet to even take contact, so the Hawks opted to let him go and free up a roster spot for a healthy player. Once at full strength, Jack should receive plenty of interest on the open free agent market and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Hawks revisit the idea of potentially bringing him back at that time. It also seems to indicate the Hawks are comfortable with Malcolm Delaney as the team's backup point guard, so he could see his role increased moving forward.
Jack (knee) will not be ready for the start of the regular season, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jack has been nursing a surgically-repaired right knee since getting surgery in January, and the team hasn't even been able to ease him into preseason games. Now, with Jack missing the start of the regular reason and having no clear timetable for recovery, Malcolm Delaney and Will Bynum will officially be competing for the backup point guard spot behind starter Dennis Schroeder.
Jack (knee) will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Pistons, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jack continues to build strength in his surgically repaired right knee, and at this point it's unclear if he'll be able to return to action at any point during the exhibition season. If the veteran misses time in the regular season, Malcolm Delaney or Will Bynum would be set for increased minutes behind Dennis Schroder.
Jack (knee) will not play Monday against Cleveland, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jack is still recovering from surgery in January to repair a torn ACL, and it's unclear if he'll be cleared for any preseason action. The veteran is set to serve as the primary backup to Dennis Schroder this season, but if he misses any time at the start of the season, Malcolm Delaney or Will Bynum would be set for increased minutes.
Jack (knee) has been ruled out for the Hawks' next two preseason games, scheduled for Thursday against the Grizzlies and Saturday against the Spurs, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jack is still being limited in his training camp workouts while he works his way back from an ACL tear suffered on Jan. 2, so there's a good possibility that he'll miss most, if not all, of the Hawks' preseason schedule. If that's the case, Jack may not be available for the start of the regular season, which would likely result in Malcolm Delaney or Will Bynum ascending to the top backup spot at point guard behind starter Dennis Schroder.
