Hawks’ Okongwu to miss first 2 games of regular season

2020 No. 6 overall pick Okongwu will miss at least the Hawks' first two games due to a foot injury.

Atlanta Hawks first-round pick Onyeka Okongwu will miss at least the first two games of the regular season because of a foot injury.

The team said Friday the 6-foot-9 center from Southern California was continuing his rehabilitation for an inflamed sesamoid bone in his left foot, including modified participation in contact practices. He has yet to be cleared for full team practices.

Okongwu’s condition will be re-evaluated on December 28, the day of the Hawks’ home opener against Detroit. He will miss the first two games of the regular season at Chicago on Wednesday and at Memphis on December 26.

Okongwu was the No. 6 overall pick. He is expected to back up starter Clint Capela and give Atlanta a much-needed defensive presence off the bench.
