“He obviously as you guys all know was dealing with the tendon stuff in his knee. He had some PRP injections, or stem-cell injections in it over the summer, so he’s been playing 1-on-1 with those guys. We’ll bring him along slowly to start camp. But again the expectation is he’ll be 100% go by the start of the season. And then for Clint, I forgot him, Clint had the PRP injection in his Achilles, the same procedure Cam (Reddish) had done, but again, we’ll bring him along slowly with the hope he’s ready to go at the start of the season.”
Okongwu, who had shoulder surgery on a torn labrum in July, has set a personal goal of returning by the end of December, per Schlenk, though the team still is expecting him back around January.
“He’s marked the end of December on his personal calendar,” Schlenk said. “He’s been back here for the past two months working his tail off and things are going great. We’re still going to shoot to have him back in that January range. If he comes back early, great. That’s what he’s marked on his calendar.
