News: 4 days agoCapela (heel) might play if the season resumes, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. According to general manager Travis Schlenk, "Clint says he's feeling better, and there's a possibility that we can get him back on the court. Practicing and playing five games would be valuable to us."
Spin: Capela was dealt to the Hawks while nursing both plantar fasciitis and a bone bruise in his heel. As a result, he hasn't yet played for his new team. However, extra time off plus rehab means that Capela has made strides in his rehab. If the Hawks are included in any sort of season resumption, Capela may be able to build chemistry on the court with his new teammates. With Houston this season, he averaged 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, 1.2 assists and 0.8 steals in 32.8 minutes.
