Cam Reddish fully cleared for on-court activities ahead of training camp


Atlanta Hawks rookie Cam Reddish has been fully cleared to resume on-court activities and will be able to participate in training camp, according to a report from Brad Rowland of DimeUPROXX.

Reddish underwent a core muscle surgery back in May. He was initially given a 6-8 week timetable for recovery. Now, though, it sounds like the former Duke star is feeling much better. The Hawks will likely be cautious in their approach to his recovery, though, and he’s expected to remain on “a load monitoring plan with bulk volume restrictions.”

Reddish played just one season at Duke alongside RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson. In his 36 appearances with the Blue Devils (35 starts), Reddish racked up averages of 13.5 points on 35.6 percent shooting from the field (33.3 percent from beyond the arc), 3.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.6 steals in 29.7 minutes per outing.

At this point, it’s not clear what sort of role Reddish will serve with the Hawks. However, with Kevin Huerter dealing with knee pain and Allen Crabbe sidelined due to knee surgery, Cam could see more minutes at the shooting guard position.

The Hawks finished the 2018-19 regular season campaign with a disappointing 29-53 overall record, which left the team well out of playoff contention.
