He will split his rehabilitation between Atlanta and Los Angeles, where he also saw doctors about his condition, before eventually returning to play for Asefa Estudiantes Madrid. Nogueira and his agent elected to use Peachtree Orthopaedics Clinic, the same facility used by the Hawks, for his rehabilitation. It will allow the team to monitor Nogueira’s progress.
