Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) will not play in Monday's preseason tilt with the Heat.
Huerter said earlier in camp that he wasn't worried about his status for opening night, and although the expectation is that he'll be ready for the regular season it is a little troubling that he has yet to play in the preseason. Huerter returned to practice on Friday, so hopefully this is the Hawks playing it safe with their presumed starting shooting guard. Health permitting, Huerter makes for a quality pick in the final few rounds of 12-team drafts.
