Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon will undergo a non-surgical procedure on his aching left ankle this week and won’t play any more this season, the team announced in an email.
Dedmon, 29, is headed toward unrestricted free agency after exercising his $7.2MM option last summer. He figures to attract significant attention on the free agent market after being mentioned in several trade rumors before the deadline.
Dedmon appeared in 64 games this season, averaging 10.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per night. He has spent the past two years in Atlanta after signing with the team in 2017.
