Hawks Locker :
The Atlanta Hawks will be without 30-year old PG/SG Kirk Hinrich for about a month after he had recent surgery to remove a cyst and repair his labrum in his left shoulder. Hinrich played in 24 games (22 starts) for the Hawks last year and he averaged 28.6 minutes, 8.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. The Hawks are going to miss Hinrich’s outside shot as he nailed 42.1% of his shots from three point range last year for the Hawks. Jeff Teague will not only have to start while Hinrich is out of action, but he’s going to have to play big minutes.

Notes and quotes from a real, live NBA camp . . .
Here is the full camp roster, minus Vladmir Radmanovic, who was signed tonight.
I guess he’s the 3-point shooter that both L.D. and Smoove said the Hawks need. “We need a for real, for real knock-down shooter,” Josh said. “I’m not asking for Kyle Korver, but a guy who can just spread the floor and just knock the shot...
