After three days of training camp work at the University of Georgia, the Hawks will not hold a formal workout on Friday. They will return to the court on Saturday as part of the free open workout and scrimmage at Philips Arena.
With the exception of Dennis Schroder, the Hawks came out of the first workouts healthy. As previously reported, the Hawks held Schroder out of practice on Thursday with an ankle injury. He will monitored and re-evaluated after a few days.
As for updates of the three players coming back from surgeries:
* Tiago Splitter has been an active participant in workouts after hip surgery ended last season for the center. “I think we feel good about Tiago’s three days of work, how much he was able to get in and how he played when he was in,” coach Mike Budenholzer said. “We tried to keep him more in scrimmage and competitive type environment. I think the whole team marvels what Tiago is doing coming off his surgery and off his injury.”
* Jarrett Jack is being brought along slowly from a torn ACL that ended his last season. The guard competed in most of the non-contact drills on the first day of training camp and Budenholzer said he did “a little bit less” the last two days.
* Paul Millsap had a non-surgical procedure on his right knee recently and will be sidelined for the first three weeks. The forward continues to be “very, very limited” which means his on-court work consists of free-throw shooting.
