Clint Capela (heel) nearing possible return?

Hawks President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Travis Schlenk told ESPN, "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."

Fantasy Impact

Traded by the Houston Rockets at the deadline, Clint Capela has yet to suit up for the Atlanta Hawks. As the NBA continues to work out the logistics on which teams will be participating in the NBA Bubble, the Hawks are interested in making sure they are taking part, even if its for only five games. The Hawks youth movement and rebuild is underway and the nucleus of Trae Young, John Collins, Cam Reddish, DeAndre Hunter, and Kevin Huerter have yet to play with Capela. Fantasy owners should expect some regression from Capela as he makes his way back from injury and its unclear how he will fit with a new system and team. One thing is for sure, the pick-and-roll lobs will be there with Trae Young and Capela remains one of the better rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA. Fantasy owners will have to hang tight for more information about whether teams out of contention will still be involved in the restart of the NBA season.

Clint Capela is ‘optimistic’ and ‘feeling pretty good’ about his rehab

In regards to the healing and rehab process for the plantar fasciitis and bone bruise in his heel, Atlanta Hawks F/C Clint Capela told The Athletic, “I’m feeling pretty good,” I’m going to keep doing what the medical staff is saying. I think they’ve been doing a pretty good job. I’m not 100 percent yet. It’s getting better, so I’m optimistic about it.”

Fantasy Impact

Capela was traded to the Hawks mid-way through the season in a multiplayer deal that sent Minnesota F Robert Covington to the Rockets. Capela was in the middle of rehabbing from his injuries sustained while playing for Houston. He admitted that there were times he pushed himself to play through the pain, which is why he hasn’t been able to heal more quickly. He told reporters that he played with a level 8 or 9 pain on a scale of 1-10 at certain times. Capela said that as of today, his range of pain now varies between a 3 and a 5, which shows major improvement from a few months ago. With the Hawks, Capela is now considered a veteran amongst a group of young players, whereas in Houston, he was a youngster amongst a group of veterans. He’ll look to claim his stake in Atlanta’s front court rotation whenever basketball resumes, although he may not carry as much fantasy value with the Hawks as he once did with the Rockets.

Clint Capela (heel) out at least two more weeks

Clint Capela (heel) has been cleared to participate in impact activities, but will remain sidelined for at least two more weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Capela (heel) and fellow big-man Skal Labissiere (knee) will be re-evaluated in two weeks. The Hawks only have 12 games remaining after Capela and Labissiere are to be re-evaluated, but it would make sense for Atlanta to see how these two bigs could potentially fit in the rotation prior to the end of the season. Look for Bruno Fernando and Dewayne Dedmon to continue to start at the Center spot, with John Collins helping out as well when the Hawks decide to play small-ball lineups.

Clint Capela (heel) will be re-evaluated next week

Clint Capela (heel) is set to be re-evaluated next week.

Fantasy Impact

Capela will be evaluated next week, but is expected to miss next week’s slate of games. With this recent timetable, Capela would most likely miss the next six contests. The Hawks are not in playoff contention and have no real reason to rush Capela back. Look for Dewayne Dedmon to see an increased role with Capela sidelined.

Clint Capela (heel) out ‘weeks’

Atlanta Hawks Head Coach Lloyd Pierce said it will be “weeks” before Clint Capela plays.

Fantasy Impact

Capela has been dealing with plantar fasciitis and will be sidelined a period of weeks. The Hawks are in rebuilding mode, and have no real reason to rush their newly acquired star center back into action. Dewayne Dedmon should see an expanded role with Capela sidelined. He is worth a pickup in all standard leagues. As for Capela, he will most likely be re-evaluated in the upcoming weeks.
