It sounds like the 20-year-old is making good progress in his recovery, and he said in the podcast appearance that he plans to start running soon as he works to get back in shape. The rookie missed on the playoffs due to the injury after averaging 6.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game in the regular season.
