John Collins has not yet resume practice so the Hawks forward will continue to be sidelined by a left ankle injury.
The second-year forward has yet to appear in a game this season due to the injury. His return is not imminent, according to a person familiar with the situation. Collins was examined and had additional tests on Nov. 2, according to a statement released by the team Monday afternoon.
According to the statement: “The results show continued progression in his rehabilitation from mild inflammation and soreness in his left ankle. He has progressed to modified on-court drills and shooting routines with the goal of integrating him into modified team practice in the coming week.”
The Hawks (3-6) have three games this week before departing on a west coast road trip. They play at the Hornets Tuesday and at home against the Knicks on Wednesday and Pistons on Friday. A four-game road trip follows beginning at the Lakers on Sunday.
The Hawks did not announce another re-evaluation date for Collins.
