Onyeka Okongwu: Still no timetable for return

The News
Coach Nate McMillan said Tuesday that there's still no timetable for Okongwu's return from a shoulder injury, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Our View
Okongwu underwent shoulder surgery in July and was initially expected back sometime in December. While McMillan wouldn't commit to a timeline for the 20-year-old's return, he did say that the 2020 first-round pick played 3-on-3 Monday and "came out okay." Regardless, the Hawks are expected to be cautious with their 6-foot-8 big man. When he does return, he is expected to challenge Gorgui Dieng for the top backup role behind starter Clint Capela.
