MARCH 9: Reddish received a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection and will be sidelined for at least two weeks, general manager Travis Schlenk said during an appearance on 92.9 The Game on Tuesday morning (Twitter link).
Reddish, who has missed the last six games due to right Achilles soreness, will be placed in a walking boot. He’ll be re-examined in approximately one week.
Reddish is averaging 11.2 PPG, 4.0 RPG and 1.3 APG in 26 games this season, including 21 starts. He’s struggled from the field, making just 36.5% of his shots overall and 26.2% of his 3-point attempts.
The Duke product was the 10th overall pick in the 2019 draft. The Hawks will have to decide this fall whether to exercise their team option on him for the 2022/23 season. Prior to this season, Atlanta exercised its option on Reddish’s contract for next season.
Reddish was one of the players said to be unhappy with coach Lloyd Pierce, who was replaced by Nate McMillan on an interim basis last week.
