Southeast Notes: Hawks, Morris, Whiteside, Parker

The Hawks have provided some detail regarding some of the injuries that have been plaguing their roster to begin the 2018/19 season.

Swingman Justin Anderson, who was traded to the Hawks from the Sixers back in July, is still rehabilitating from a pre-trade surgery to address recurring tibial stress syndrome in his left leg. There is still no timetable for his return.

Big man John Collins, who may expect to have a breakout sophomore campaign in 2018/19, is also still rehabilitating from mild inflammation and soreness in his left ankle. He is still out, but his return is clearer. His rehab will be reviewed in eleven days with an update from the Hawks to follow.

Fellow big man Dewayne Dedmon is returning after participating in his first full live practice with the team yesterday. He was re-assessed today and is playing for the Hawks in their game against Dallas this evening.

Finally, Hawks swingman Daniel Hamilton has returned to modified practice following rehab for a tear in his right rotator cuff. There is no timetable for his return to game action.

    They Heat have only themselves to blame. Matching T. Johnson and Signing Waiters. I understand what they were trying to do – they wanted to double up at every position with a guys that would be 6th mans on most NBA Rosters or fringe starters.

    But there isn’t a star/leader on that roster (Wade doesn’t count, he’s on the way out). Most of these guys are very good role players. I just see… around 50 or 60M that was spent on being ‘good enough’ but not ‘bad enough’. In a league that is all or nothing.

    You’d have to be willing to give up Richardson, Tyler Johnson, and Dragic for minimal return.

    Like Whiteside + Richardson for JR Smith and George Hill frees up 24M next year…

    Tyler Johnson for Crabbe frees up 19.

    Dragic for Chandler frees up 18

    Gets you to 72M before draft picks, almost enough for a max contract.

      Only for sure bad contract is Whiteside. Olynyk is kind of either way, and waiters is only bad b/c of his injuries
