The 2022 NBA Draft is quickly approaching. Teams throughout the league are finalizing their game plans, while prospects are preparing to potentially begin their NBA careers. According to Philstar Global's Alder Almo, Kai Sotto is back in the action.

The NBA Draft prospect suffered an ankle injury during a workout with the Atlanta Hawks last week. However, according to an NBA source (per Philstar Global), the plan is to resume Sotto's workouts next week.

This is a huge deal for not only Sotto but for his country. The 20-year-old is on his way to becoming the first native Filipino player in the NBA.

While Sotto would be the first native Filipino player in the league, he wouldn't be the only NBA player of Filipino descent. Jalen Green of the Houston Rockets and Jordan Clarkson of the Utah Jazz are also Filipino. Green was born and raised in California, while Clarkson was born in Florida and raised in Texas.

The NBA Draft prospect is expected to resume workouts soon, but his ankle isn't 100%. That's according to a source from Philstar Global, who said:

“He is still not 100 percent [healthy]. We need him to be 100 percent [healthy] before he can do anything.”

The 7'2″ center has worked out with multiple teams this offseason, making his rounds as a highly sought-after prospect. If healthy come draft day, Sotto is expected to be picked up in the second round.
