The Atlanta Hawks released an injury report late last week that detailed multiple names. Read on to explore the team’s ailments and injuries.

With under a week to go until the Atlanta Hawks play their first preseason game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the team released an extensive injury report that featured a rather surprising number of players that are suffering from various ailments and injuries.

Most importantly, John Collins recently experienced discomfort in his right hip. After undergoing an MRI, Collins does indeed have a right hip strain. Though he is able to participate in on-court activities, it seems his load during training camp will be limited so as not to aggravate the injury further.

The Hawks definitely need JC fully healthy, as they didn’t truly seem like themselves when he wasn’t on the court to start the 2018-19 season last year.

Beyond JC, Allen Crabbe underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery in April, and he has not been cleared to participate in training camp or play in the preseason.

Another important player for the Atlanta Hawks, Kevin Huerter, reported knee pain in late August. Though an MRI revealed no structural damage, his training camp activities will be limited within “prescribed rehab limitations” per the injury report and intensities will be increased throughout training camp.

Alex Len, who is currently rehabbing a left ankle sprain, also expressed lower back pain recently. His training camp status is to be determined.

Chandler Parsons will likely play very little during the preseason and throughout training camp due to load management, as he returns from a glut of injuries over his past few seasons.

The injury report ended on a positive note, as rookie Cam Reddish, who many viewed as a steal at #10 overall, “has been fully cleared to resume on-court activities and will participate in the upcoming training camp. He will remain on a load monitoring plan with bulk volume restrictions,” according to the injury report.
