Hawks' Clint Capela: Feels confident in health of heel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela said Friday that his injured right heel feels "way, way better" and indicated that he believes he has fully healed, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

Capela noted that he won't know if he's 100 percent healthy until he goes through 5-on-5 work, which he won't be able to do in the immediate future after the Hawks weren't included among the 22 teams who will play in Orlando when the NBA season resumes in late July. In any event, Capela should head into the offseason at nearly full health or close to it, putting him on track to be ready to go for the Hawks' 2020-21 training camp. Though he never played a minute for Atlanta after being acquired from Houston in February while he was contending with plantar fasciitis, Capela can be penciled in as a starter in the frontcourt alongside John Collins.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Could take part in 'excluded eight'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta general manager Travis Schlenk said Tuesday that Capela (heel) could be available to play in a potential summer competition between the Hawks and the other seven teams who won't be included when the NBA resumes its season in Orlando in late July, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the eight teams excluded from the 22-team group in Orlando are still eager to set up a mandatory summer training camp or regional fall league that would allow players to take part in some competitive action before the 2020-21 season, which would eliminate a nearly nine-month window between games for those clubs. If the NBA and players' union both come to agreement on a training camp or short-term league for those teams, Capela looks like he'll be ready to participate after having not played in a game since Jan. 29, when he was still a member of the Rockets. He was traded to the Hawks less than a week later and was sidelined with plantar fasciitis and a bone bruise in his right heel until the NBA suspended its season in mid-March, but the center looks to have nearly moved past the issue. At the very least, Capela looks like he'll be fully healthy by the time the Hawks hold a traditional training camp in advance of the 2020-21 campaign.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Could play if season resumes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) might play if the season resumes, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. According to general manager Travis Schlenk, "Clint says he's feeling better, and there's a possibility that we can get him back on the court. Practicing and playing five games would be valuable to us."

Capela was dealt to the Hawks while nursing both plantar fasciitis and a bone bruise in his heel. As a result, he hasn't yet played for his new team. However, extra time off plus rehab means that Capela has made strides in his rehab. If the Hawks are included in any sort of season resumption, Capela may be able to build chemistry on the court with his new teammates. With Houston this season, he averaged 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, 1.2 assists and 0.8 steals in 32.8 minutes.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Not yet fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela relayed Sunday that he's "feeling pretty good" as he continues to rehab from plantar fasciitis and a bone bruise in his right heel, though he admitted he's not fully healthy yet, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. "I'm going to keep doing what the medical staff is saying," Capela said. "I'm not 100 percent yet. It's getting better, so I'm optimistic about it."

Capela has been dealing with heel discomfort since late December and made his last appearance in a game Jan. 29 -- while he was still a member of the Rockets -- before being dealt to the Hawks less than a week later. While the NBA's ongoing hiatus theoretically gives Capela more time to heal up from the injury, his inability to test out his heel in full-contact, full-court workouts under the supervision of the Hawks' staff means he won't necessarily be cleared to practice right away when teams are allowed to resume training. On a more positive note, Capela indicated that the intensity of the pain in his heel has subsided since the league-wide shutdown. Last month, he said his pain was in the 5-to-7 range on a scale of one to 10; he now says his pain level falls somewhere in the 3-to-5 range.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Progressing well from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) had progressed to participating in half-court workouts before the NBA suspended its season March 11, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Capela hasn't played since Jan. 29 due to a bout with plantar fasciitis in his right heel, but the center had been making notable strides in his recovery earlier this month. Updates on Capela's progress have been scarce since the league-wide shutdown, but the extra time off should only help his chances of making his Hawks debut this season, as play isn't likely to resume until at least May. Given that the Hawks are out of playoff contention, Capela will likely be treated cautiously for any games Atlanta has left on its schedule, with coach Lloyd Pierce likely to enforce some sort of minutes restriction for the center. That said, even a 20-minute role might be enough for Capela to return value in standard leagues for fantasy managers looking for help in field-goal percentage, blocks and rebounds.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Out another two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Capela hasn't played since Jan. 29 due to a heel injury. While he was recently cleared to begin impact activities in his rehab, he's still multiple weeks away from a possible return. In his continued absence, Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) and John Collins should hold down Atlanta's frontcourt.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Likely out another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) is set to be re-evaluated next week, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

This should be a step in the right direction for Capela, though Kirschner notes the Hawks expect the big man to remain out through at least next week. If that's the case, then Capela would miss six more games, at a minimum. Given the Hawks' standing in the East, there will be little motivation for Capela to get back on the floor before he's 100 percent healthy.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Out for 'weeks'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Lloyd Pierce noted it will be "weeks" before Capela (heel) will play, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Still dealing with plantar fasciitis, Capela will be sidelined for the foreseeable future. The Hawks, who entered the All-Star break with a 15-41 record, have no reason to rush Capela back. More information on a timetable for his return should emerge as he hits various milestones in his recovery.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) will not make his Hawks debut Thursday against the Heat, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Capela, who is still dealing with plantar fasciitis, was unable to practice Tuesday and is not expected to Wednesday, either. His next opportunity to take the court for his new team arrives Saturday against the Mavericks.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Sits out practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

Capela is still nursing a plantar fascia issue in his right heel that cost him the final eight games before the All-Star break. The Hawks haven't commented on their new center's status for Thursday's game against Miami, but at this point it appears highly unlikely that he'll make his debut.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Out through All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) hopes to return coming out of the All-Star break, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Capela was already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks, but he'll also miss Monday's and Wednesday's contests as he continues his recovery from plantar fasciitis. The 25-year-old's next opportunity to make his debut with the Hawks will come Thursday, Feb. 20 versus the Heat. According to Ben Ladner of SI.com, Capela and Skal Labissiere (knee) will remain in Atlanta during the upcoming road trip to continue their rehab work.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hawks' Clint Capela: Will not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) remains out Friday against the Celtics, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

The recently-traded big man will sit out for a fifth straight contest as he continues to recover from a bruised right heel. It's unclear when he may be able to make his debut for the Hawks and, for now, Capela should be considered day-to-day.

Hawks' Clint Capela: Shipped to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) was traded to the Hawks as part of a four-team trade Tuesday with the Rockets, Nuggets and Timberwolves, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Robert Covington will take Capela's place in Houston, as Nene, Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez, Evan Turner, Gerald Green and Keita Bates-Diop are also included in the trade. Capela has missed three of the last four games with a heel injury, but he's averaging 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.8 blocks in 32.8 minutes this season and will provide another frontcourt option for Trae Young.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) won't play in Tuesday's game against Charlotte, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

According to coach Mike D'Antoni, Capela's "still hurting," indicating that his injured heel hasn't improved enough for him to be an option against the Hornets. P.J. Tucker should continue to start at center as long as Capela's held out.

February 2, 2020 12:28 PM
Rockets' Clint Capela: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) will not play Sunday against New Orleans, Michael Shapiro of SI.com reports.

A bruised right heel will keep Capela out of the lineup for the third game in the last four. The Rockets will use a small starting lineup, with P.J. Tucker again starting at center.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) is expected to remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup with the Pelicans, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Capela's expected absence would mark his third straight missed game due to a bruised heel. If that is the case, the Rockets could opt to go small at center with P.J. Tucker or go with Isaiah Hartenstein. Expect confirmation on the big man's status to come closer to tip-off.

January 31, 2020 01:40 PM
Rockets' Clint Capela: Won't play vs. Mavericks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) is out for Friday's matchup against the Mavericks.

Capela will miss his second game in three tries due to a bruised heel. In his place, P.J. Tucker could get the nod again at center, but Isaiah Hartenstein and Thabo Sefolosha could be the main beneficiaries from a workload perspective.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Struggles in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) scored two points (1-1 FG, 0-2 FT), grabbed seven rebounds and committed three turnovers in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 125-112 loss at Portland.

Capela started in his return following a one-game absence, but he didn't do much aside from grabbing seven boards and making his lone field-goal attempt. The most positive aspect from his return is the fact that he looked healthy, and he should be in line for a bigger workload Friday against Dallas.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Back in action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (heel) will play Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Capela was expected to be available Wednesday and will indeed rejoin the starting lineup, along with James Harden (groin). Capela averaged 12.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 3.0 blocks in 31.0 minutes over the previous five games before picking up the injury.
