Hawks' Trent Forrest: Remains out with illness
Forrest (illness) was unable to participate in Friday's practice and won't travel with the team to Abu Dhabi, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Forrest continues to deal with a non-COVID illness, and while it sounds like he could still travel overseas if he gets healthy, he won't be making the trip with the Hawks when they depart. If Forrest can get cleared within the next day or two, he should be available for Atlanta's preseason opener against Milwaukee on Oct. 6.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' AJ Griffin: Returns to live practice
Griffin participated in live practice Friday for the first time since tweaking his ankle, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Hawks' Jalen Johnson: Misses practice due to illness
Johnson didn't practice Friday due to an illness and won't be able to travel with the team to Abu Dhabi for the Hawks' preseason opener, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Trent Forrest also missed practice due to an illness, but per Rowland, both players could eventually meet the team overseas if they clear their aliments before the preseason matchup against the Bucks on Oct. 6 in Abu Dhabi. Johnson appeared in 22 games as a rookie and posted 2.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 5.5 minutes, but he's been rumored to be a bigger piece of Atlanta's rotation during the 2022-23 campaign....

Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Back in practice
Murray (illness) rejoined practice Thursday but will integrate slowly after missing some time, Lauren L. Williams of MLive.com reports.
Murray sat out Wednesday's practice with a non-COVID illness, but he's at least back in the mix for the Hawks as of Thursday. His first chance to don the new uniform arrives next Thursday against the Bucks, and he figures to pair with Trae Young to form a dynamic backcourt for Atlanta in 2022-23. However, Murray figures to lose some fantasy value moving off the ball.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' AJ Griffin: Nursing ankle injury
Hawks head coach Nate McMillan said Wednesday that Griffin "tweaked" his ankle and has been limited in practice the last couple of days, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Griffin didn't participate in Wednesday's open practice due to the ankle issue, but it doesn't sound like a big concern considering he's still participating in workouts. As long as the rookie can log some live sessions with the team soon, he should be ready for the preseason when it begins Oct. 6.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trent Forrest: Misses open practice due to illness
Hawks head coach Nate McMillan said Wednesday that Forrest didn't participate in Atlanta's open practice due to a non-COVID illness, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
It's unclear if the ailment is related to the same bug currently affecting Dejounte Murray (illness), but Forrest was one of several players to miss Wednesday's open practice. Provided the illness doesn't linger, Forrest should be available for the Hawks' preseason opener against the Bucks on Oct. 6.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Unavailable for open practice
Murray is not participating in Wednesday's open practice due to a non-COVID illness, Lauren L. Williams of MLive.com reports.
Murray wasn't the only player sidelined Wednesday, as Bogdan Bogdanovic (kneecap), Vit Krejci (knee), AJ Griffin and Trent Forrest were also unavailable. It's unclear how much playing time Murray will receive during the Hawks' preseason, but he should be fully available going forward as long as the illness doesn't linger.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Vit Krejci: Traded to Atlanta
Krejci (knee) was traded by the Thunder to the Hawks on Tuesday in exchange for Maurice Harkless and a second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Krejci underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in April after presumably playing through the issue at the end of last season. After the All-Star break, the guard, drafted in 2020, appeared in 24 straight games for the Thunder and averaged 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 27.4 minutes per contest. He's expected to be healthy by the start of the season, but he'll face stiff competition for playing time, especially if he misses a large portion of training camp while rehabbing his knee....

Hawks' AJ Griffin: Moves past foot issue
Hawks general manager Landry Fields said Friday that Griffin (foot) has been "full go" for the last few weeks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
The Hawks selected Griffin with the 16th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, but he didn't play during Summer League due to a foot injury. However, he appears to have moved past the issue and will be fine for camp. It's unclear what role he'll play for the Hawks as a rookie, as he faces stiff competition for playing time in Atlanta's talented backcourt.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Jalen Johnson: Full go for training camp
Hawks general manager Landry Fields said Friday that Johnson (knee) is "full go" for training camp, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Johnson underwent a non-surgical procedure on his left knee to address tendinitis in June, and as expected, he'll be good to go heading into the regular season. As a rookie, the 2021 first-round pick didn't get consistent playing time, appearing in only 22 games while averaging 2.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 5.5 minutes per contest. However, head coach Nate McMillan suggested that Johnson could be a bigger part of Atlanta's rotation during the 2022-23 campaign. "Jalen will get minutes this year," McMillan said at a press conference Friday.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Still not 100 percent
Hawks GM Landry Fields said Friday that Bogdanovic (kneecap) is "not going to be 100 percent for training camp," Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Bogdanovic continues to progress in his rehab after undergoing offseason knee surgery to address inflammation in his right patella tendon, but he won't be fully healthy when camp begins Sept. 24. The Hawks' goal is to get Bogdanovic back to 100 percent in time for the season opener against Houston on Oct. 19, so he'll continue to have restrictions in camp and during the preseason as he ramps up for 2022-23....
