The Hawks will bring John Jenkins back from D-League today, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (via Twitter). Jenkins was assigned to the Bakersfield Jam along with fellow rookie Mike Scott last week. Scott is sick and will remain in Bakersfield until he gets healthy.
The 21-year-old was taken with the 23rd overall pick in the 2012 draft out of Vanderbilt. Jenkins had an enjoyable two game stint in the D-League, scoring 22 points against the Santa Cruz Warriors in his debut and 29 points against the Los Angeles D-Fenders last night. The guard saw just 13 minutes across four games this season for the Hawks.
