The Atlanta Hawks made a big splash at the Trade Deadline bringing in Center Clint Capela and fans were told to be patient as he'd likely be out until after the All Star break.

The break has come and gone and the Hawks resume action tonight but it will be without Capela.

Hawks Head Coach Lloyd Pierce, who joins John Fricke and Hugh Douglas every Thursday, spoke about the new, updated timeline for Capela.

"He's had the injury, he re-aggravated the injury in Houston trying to come back too soon. Just being cautious long term,  let's make sure he's healthy and not just back. He's not running or jumping on the court and so it's not just a couple days. At best I hope we get a small sample and see him a little bit before the season ends."
