Dewayne Dedmon (avulsion fracture) will not play on Monday night against the Pelicans.
Dedmon was set to be re-evaluated late last week and although he's been ruled out of the preseason opener it doesn't mean that that checkup didn't go well. The Hawks are just playing it safe with their presumed starting center. As the hype around younger Hawks continues to grow, Dedmon could become a potential value play late in the drafts.
