Hawks F Thabo Sefolosha still on track for mid-March return
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha (calf) remains on track for a mid-March return, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Sefolosha suffered a severe right calf strain on Jan. 30 against the Blazers. He claims to have heard a "pop" in his calf, which gave him a six-to-eight week timetable.|
Sefolosha has started light court work and is no longer walking with a limp. He also traveled with the team to Milwaukee earlier in the week. He was averaging 7.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game for the Hawks this season.
Hawks' Thabo Sefolosha heard 'pop' when injuring calf
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) When Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha injured his calf last Friday against the Trail Blazers, he realized it was going to be something serious rather quickly.
Sefolosha told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he heard a "pop" in his calf, which is going to sideline him for six-to-eight weeks. Sefolosha said the injury came on an ordinary play. The injury has been deteremined to be a Grade III calf strain.
Sefolosha is averaging 7.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game for the Hawks this season.
Hawks' Kent Bazemore won't slow down as a starter
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/2/15) Hawks SG Kent Bazemore is getting increased minutes, but he doesn't plan to pace himself. That's not how he made it to where he is now.
Bazemore went from unrecruited high school player to practice player at Old Dominion. "I didn’t score in practice until like February," he told Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Undrafted and toiling in the D-League, he earned the attention of Hawks assistant GM Wes Wilcox through his work ethic and his "desperation to be great".
The Hawks signed Bazemore during the offseason, after he spent parts of the previous two years with the Warriors and Lakers.
Recovering from offseason foot surgery, Bazemore played limited minutes early on and found himself buried in the Hawks' rotation. A left Achilles strain to starting SG DeMarre Carroll, followed by right calf strain to backup Thabo Sefolosha gave Bazemore an opportunity, and he hit it at full speed.
Bazemore scored 12 points in 40 minutes off the bench against the trailblazers, earning his first Hawks start on Saturday. He shot 1-for-6, scoring 3 points in the game. Bazemore said starting was an adjustment, but not one that will slow him down.
"It’s different physically,” he told Winkeljohn. “You have to find ways when you’re fatigued and your shot is not falling to help. … I only have one gear, I think, and if I’m out there trying to pace, I’m not going to be as aggressive as I can be."
Hawks announce Sefolosha (calf) to miss 6-to-8 weeks
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/31/15) The Hawks announced Saturday that shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha will miss six-to-eight weeks due to a right calf strain, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Sefolosha drew the start Friday as an injury replacement but had to leave the game after just two minutes due to the calf injury. He underwent an MRI Saturday, which determined the severity of the injury. He has averaged 5.1 points and 4.3 rebounds in 45 games.
Hawks' Sefolosha out at least one month with siginificant injury
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/31/15) Hawks shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha is expected to miss at least one month with a significant injury, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Sefolosha drew the start Friday in place of another injured player but managed to see just two minutes of action before coming out with a calf injury. With Sefolosha and DeMarre Carroll sidelined Saturday, Kent Bazemore will draw the start at small forward.
The Hawks are 16-point favorites at home against Philadelphia.
|After spending his previous six seasons with the Thunder, Thabo Sefolosha will embark on a new challenge, but may find himself in a similar role. Sefolosha signed with the Hawks in the offseason and will likely come off the bench behind DeMarre Carroll. Still, Carroll played 70-plus games in a season for the first time since the 2008-09 campaign, so we expect Sefolosha to get plenty of chances to log more minutes this season. After playing 81 games in 2012-13, Sefolosha was plagued by a strained left calf, which limited him to 61 games in his final season with Oklahoma City. He averaged 6.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 26.0 minutes per game. He shot 41.5 percent from the field, including 31.6 percent from downtown over that span. Sefolosha is still more of a defensive-minded role player, who won't be consistent enough to make any sort of impact in Fantasy. Ignore him in most formats.
