Goals for Atlanta Hawks wing Cam Reddish No. 1) Stay Healthy

While this is the goal for every player in the league, Reddish is coming off the back of two interrupted seasons. This is never going to be a good thing for a player who is trying to establish himself in the rotation of one of the best teams in the entire league.

Obviously, his first season was interrupted by the global pandemic which is not something in the control of the player. This season Reddish missed all but 26 regular-season games due to Achilles soreness. While you may ask why soreness kept him out, the Achillies is not a part of the body you want to risk.

When he came back for the Eastern Conference semi-finals, you can be assured that the Hawks would have made sure that he was fine to come back. Given that he has now had the offseason to continue the recovery, he should be fine for next season. You have to wonder if the time they had off for the pandemic impacted the health of the player.

However, he now needs to stay healthy so that he can bring his immense talent to the floor every night. He can be a key piece in the rotation, as long as he can keep his body right for most of the 82 games and then the post-season.
