Cam Reddish has been cleared to play, but Hawks announce list of other injuries

The good news is that Cam Reddish, who underwent core muscle surgery earlier in the summer, has been fully cleared to resume on-court activities and partake in training camp, albeit with a load management plan. 

But leading into media day Monday and the first day of training camp Tuesday, the Hawks announced a handful of player injuries Friday, beginning with John Collins, who has been experiencing discomfort in his right hip. An MRI revealed a right hip strain. 

Collins will still be able to participate in on-court activities, but with “prescribed rehab limitations,” according to a news release, with his load increasing throughout camp. He’ll be evaluated by team physicians at the end of camp. 

The Hawks announced Allen Crabbe underwent right knee arthroscopy April 4 and continues to rehab his knee, making gradual process, but he hasn’t been cleared to play in camp and will likely miss the whole preseason. 

Kevin Huerter has been struggling with knee pain, but an MRI ruled out any structural injury, so the Hawks have been treating him to reduce inflammation. He is able to participate in on-court activities, with the intensity increased throughout training camp. Team doctors will evaluate him after camp. 

In addition, Alex Len, who has been rehabbing a left ankle sprain, reported lower back pain Thursday. Len will be monitored over the next few days to see if he will be able to participate in training camp. 

The team also announced that Chandler Parsons, who has struggled with knee injuries in the past, will be limited through training camp and the preseason as a load management tactic.
