“I’m pretty upset about it but it’s part of the game,” Jenkins said. “I felt how I came back from injury, from August until now, I feel like I made leaps and bounds and shocked a lot of people in the way I came back. I feel like in the preseason, I might have earned my spot and had my option picked up. But it didn’t happen. I will continue to work hard, support the team and be positive.” Jenkins, who was selected with the 23rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft out of Vanderbilt, has been slowed by injury during his Hawks career. He averaged 6.1 points in 14.8 minutes as a rookie in 74 games. However, last season was an injury plagued year for the shooting guard. He missed substantial time that summer and training camp with a back injury. The 23-year old appeared in only 13 games last season when the injury re-occurred and eventually required season-ending surgery in February. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Gustavo Ayon (right shoulder) was not at practice, the first since the team announced he would miss 4 to 8 weeks. Lou Williams (torn ACL) continued his non-contact work. John Jenkins (lower back spasms) remains day-to-day. He received treatment Thursday. The shooting guard confirmed that the spasms are related to the back injury that caused him to miss two months this summer. "I’m taking it slow," Jenkins said. "I'm not trying to rush back. I was good in training camp. I just made a false step and re-aggravated it a little bit. I’m in a rush to get back personally, but I know it takes time to heal so I’m going to be patient with it."

Horford, who is from the Dominican Republic, prefers to read books in Spanish and said that Garcia Marquez is much better in Spanish. (John Jenkins, Georgia's 358-pound nose tackle, just sacked McCarron for a 15-yard loss!) He listed Garcia Marquez books I hadn't heard of, and warned me not to bother with Memories of My Melancholy Whores. I wrote that down and then lowered the discourse: What did he think of Houston Rockets guard James Harden's 1970s beard? (Crazy catch by Amari Cooper ... then Lacy runs it up the middle. 'Bama closing in on its first score.) He told me that he didn't approve. Nor did his wife, which was why he keeps his facial hair close to his face. Creative Loafing Atlanta
