Article Summary:

The NBA’s condensed schedule means that a six-month absence will have him out until the middle of next season, which begins in October. The Hawks have championship aspirations for next season, and playing the beginning of next season without both would weaken them significantly in the regular season.

The Hawks will now have to find another backup center to help them through the earlier portion of next season, but given their stature as contenders, that should be doable. The Hawks only need someone to hold down the fort until Okongwu returns and can begin building on his successful postseason debut.
