Hawks' Forward Done For The Season

The Atlanta Hawks' depth is taking a hit, as forward Soloman Hill is done for the season due to a right hamstring tendon tear. Due to this, the 30-year-old requires surgery.

Hill's 2021-22 season ends with just 13 games played. In them, he averaged 0.6 PPG, 1.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists. Although he isn't a star, it's never a good feeling to lose a player for the season. From here, Atlanta will be looking for a replacement. 

Hill joined the Hawks last season and had a bit more success during that campaign. In 71 games, he averaged 4.5 PPG, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists. Thus, it did seem possible that he could have turned things around as this season progressed, but that opportunity is now gone for him.

In 448 career games between the Indiana Pacers, New Orleans Pelicans, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat and Hawks, Hill has averaged 5.5 PPG, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Here's to hoping for a speedy recovery for Hill and that he will be back on the court next season.
