Atlanta Hawks forward Cam Reddish, who has been dealing with right Achilles soreness, has progressed to running and dynamic foot contacts every other day, the team announced.
Reddish is also doing capacity building strength work four to five days a week.
His status will be re-evaluated the week of May 16 (last day of the regular season) and will be updated as appropriate.
With the timeline given, Reddish won’t be able to return until the playoffs, if he returns at all this season.
If he does return for playoffs, it’s hard seeing Reddish be a part of the playoff rotation if everyone is healthy, as he would be on a minutes restriction and there would likely be rust, notes Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.
The 21-year-old hasn’t played since Feb. 21.
In 26 games, Reddish is averaging 11.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game in 28.8 minutes per game.
