Visa issue delayed Schroder’s return from All-Star break

It was a visa problem that prevented Dennis Schroder from returning to the United States from an All-Star break trip to Germany. The Hawks starting point guard missed Wednesday’s practice, the team’s first workout.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said of Schroder’s absence Wednesday only that there were “travel issues” and that he was hopeful he would make it back by Thursday.
