Hamilton (shoulder) is unlikely to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Knicks, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Hamilton has been nursing a tear in his right rotator cuff for several weeks now, and it's still unclear what kind of timetable he is facing. Regardless, he is not expected to be ready for the start of the regular season and will be evaluated on a game-to-game basis until the Hawks can provide another update on his health.
Hamilton (shoulder) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Hamilton is recovering from a tear in his right rotator cuff. A two-week date for a re-evaluation puts his availability for the season opener in doubt.
Hamilton played on a two-way deal with Oklahoma City a season ago, but saw action in just six NBA games. In the G League, Hamilton posted averages of 16.1 points, 9.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists over 32.8 minutes per game. Atlanta has a young roster, so it's possible Hamilton could get a chance to prove himself.
Hamilton finished with seven points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists and a block across 28 minutes during Thursday's 92-85 summer league loss to the Grizzlies.
Hamilton continues to show off his all-around game, flirting with a triple-double while leading OKC in rebounds and assists. He was a staple in the G-League for the Oklahoma City Blue last season, but could begin to earn himself more minutes at the NBA level if his impressive play continues through training camp.
Hamilton posted 12 points (4-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 25 minutes during Saturday's 90-76 summer league win over the Nets.
Through two summer league games, the 22-year-old has totaled 23 points, 21 rebounds, 15 assists and three steals. He flirted with averaging a triple-double last season for the G-League's Oklahoma City Blue, so this kind of effort isn't unexpected.
