Dewayne Dedmon suffers ankle injury

Atlanta Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon sustained a left ankle injury during a workout around one week ago, on Monday, August 27.

An X-ray and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an avulsion fracture and he has been placed in a walking boot. He will be re-evaluated in one week, and his status will be updated as appropriate.

The Hawks are in rebuilding mode. Their core includes Jeremy Lin, Kent Bazemore, and a lot of youth. The team will probably give Dedmon decent minutes this season.
