Hawks' Dennis Schroder: Will be reevaluated in a few days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schroder, who was held out of Thursday's practice with a sore ankle, is expected to be reevaluated in a few days, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer indicated the Hawks were erring on the side of caution by keeping Schroder, the projected starter at point guard, out for a few days in order for him to recover from the injury. In addition to Schroder, backup point guard Jarrett Jack (knee) has also been limited at camp, leaving Malcolm Delaney and Will Bynum as the only healthy players capable of running the offense during practices.

Hawks' Paul Millsap: Remains 'very, very limited' in on-court activity
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said Thursday that Millsap (knee) remains "very, very limited" in his on-court activities while he recovers from a non-surgical procedure, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

While Budenholzer's quote seems concerning on the surface, Millsap was expected all along to be sidelined for three weeks after undergoing the procedure on his right knee just over a week ago, so it comes as little surprise that he's doing limited work on the court. The power forward has been limited to free throw shooting thus far during workouts, but we should see him ramp up his activities in the coming week as he nears the end of his recovery timetable. It's expected that Millsap will miss most of the Hawks' preseason schedule, but he's on track to return to full strength for the start of the regular season.

Hawks' Dennis Schroder: Sits out of practice with sore ankle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Schroder was held out of Thursday's practice with a sore ankle, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.

The Hawks haven't revealed much about the severity of Schroder's injury, but more details should be available in the coming days. At this time in the early days of training camp, teams tend to act cautiously with their players even when they're dealing with minor injuries, so there's little reason to worry yet about Schroder's status for the upcoming season. The 22-year-old is expected to move into a regular starting role this season and should notice a substantial jump in his 2015-16 averages of 11.0 points, 4.4 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 0.9 steals in 20.3 minutes per game.

Hawks' Paul Millsap: Undergoes preventative knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Millsap underwent a preventative knee procedure recently and is expected to be sidelined three weeks, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Specifics of the procedure have yet to be released, but it's not expected to be a serious issue for the 31-year-old power forward. Millsap is still slated to be ready to go by the start of the regular season, but likely won't see action during the team's training camp or preseason schedule. Considering he's unlikely to play during the preseason, we could see an adjustment period early in the year while playing alongside the newly acquired Dwight Howard for the first time. However, once acclimated to the change, Millsap should see a similar role to last season as one of the team's more reliable offensive options.

Hawks' Jarrett Jack: Starts training camp as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jack (knee) is expected to be a limited participant when training camp begins next week, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "[Jack is] doing well. You always are optimistic that [the recovery time] is on the shorter end," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "I've told him, and he knows, we are always going to err on the side of caution. Easing him into camp and easing him into exhibition. To some degree the next week to 10 days will tell us more."

Jack played just 32 games this past season with the Nets before suffering a season-ending torn right ACL. At the start of August, Jack indicated his surgically-repaired knee was at about 80 percent strength, so it's safe to assume he's getting closer to full health. However, with his reps limited in camp, Jack could face some minutes restrictions when the season opens. He's expected to slot in as Dennis Schroder's primary backup at point guard.
