Hawks guard Kris Dunn recently underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove loose cartilage in his right ankle.
He will be placed in a walking boot, and after two weeks of rest, his health status will be reviewed.
Per the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “I know (vice president of athletic performance and sports medicine Chelsea Lane has) been in communication with (him) and the family,” Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce said Thursday (the team is still in Brooklyn, and will face the Nets again Friday). “It sounds as if everything went well, as well as the surgery can go, and he’s staying here at the hotel. But he’s post-op and laying low.”
