Reddish won’t play for Hawks in summer league

Cam Reddish will not compete for the Hawks in the Las Vegas Summer League as the No. 10 overall pick in the NBA draft continues to recover from a core muscle surgery.

Reddish visited the Hawks last week in advance of the draft and was examined by Hawks doctors, according to general manager Travis Schlenk.

“I don’t think he will quite be ready for summer league,” Schlenk said. “They said it was a six to eight week process (to recover from the surgery). We are four weeks into that. He probably won’t get on the court until the end of July. We will get him in here next week and get on top of his rehab. We had him in here last week so we’ve seen him, our doctors have seen him. Everything is coming along great on that front.”

The Hawks will also be without De’Andre Hunter, the No. 4 pick, for at least the start of summer league. The deal that will eventually send Hunter to the Hawks will not be official until at least July 6.

The Las Vegas Summer League runs from July 5-15.
