Thabo Sefolosha isn’t sure he’ll be ready for training camp after suffering a broken leg in a scuffle with police in New York this past spring, he said to Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com (Twitter link). Sefolosha also admitted an October 5th court date related to the incident, which would take place during camp, isn’t ideal. Sefolosha is pushing forward in the legal process as he seeks to clear his name, as Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Prosecutors dropped all charges today against former Hawks big man Pero Antic, who was also involved in the incident, Vivlamore adds. See more from the Southeast Division:
