Newly-acquired Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela won’t make his team debut until after the All-Star break, as the team only plays twice this week.

Capela was acquired from the Houston Rockets in the massive four-team trade last week.

He has been out since Jan. 29 with plantar fasciitis in his right heel.

The 25-year-old will be joining the NBA’s youngest starting lineup, but he will also bring some experience as well.

At Capela’s introductory press conference, Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk joked that Capela was old at 25 compared to the team’s young core of players.
