Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk said Tuesday that he anticipates Huerter (shoulder) will be sidelined around 4-to-5 weeks, Mike Conti of 92-9 The Game Atlanta reports.
When Huerter was diagnosed Nov. 14 with a left rotator cuff strain, the Hawks declined to put a timeline on the guard's return beyond relaying that he would be re-evaluated in two weeks. Schlenk's comments suggest that Huerter will likely be sidelined for at least a month, with the four-week timeline ensuring that the 21-year-old won't be back until at least Dec. 10. Given that Huerter is considered a core piece for the Hawks, it wouldn't be surprising if the team took a conservative approach with his recovery. In the meantime, the likes of Cam Reddish, De'Andre Hunter, Evan Turner and Allen Crabbe should benefit from more run on the wing. Nov 19 11:42 am (EST)
