Hawks’ Reddish awaits clearance for return to full on-court work

Cam Reddish has not been cleared for on-court workouts as the Hawks draft pick returns from core muscle surgery. The guard is still expected to be ready by the start of training camp next month.

The Hawks stated a recovery timeline of six to eight weeks after they selected Reddish with the No. 10 overall pick in the NBA draft on June 20 out of Duke. At the time, he was four weeks into the post-operation recovery. However, Reddish has yet to be fully cleared in the eight weeks since.

Reddish did not play for the Hawks in the Las Vegas Summer League July 5-15 as the tournament was still within the recovery timeline.

The Hawks will begin training camp in September. Their first preseason game is Oct. 7 and the regular-season opener is Oct. 24.
