Scott sits out practice for treatment

Hawks forward Mike Scott did not take part in practice on Wednesday, a day before the team’s preseason opener at the Grizzlies.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said Scott was receiving treatment during the practice session but did not elaborate on an area of possible concern. When asked if there was a potential issue, Budenholzer said “hopefully not.”

Scott had his knee iced before several training camp practices in Athens last week.

Scott played 14:40 of the team’s scrimmage on Saturday. He had one rebound and three assists.

The Hawks will be without Paul Millsap and Jarrett Jack for exhibition games at the Grizzlies on Thursday and at the Spurs on Saturday as they return from knee issues. Budenholzer would not say whether any other players would miss one or both games.
