More on Rui Hachimura Injury

Ava Wallace: Rui Hachimura went through parts of shootaround for the first time today, Unseld said. "Just another step in his ramp up. We still don't have a definitive timetable, but every day it's more."
Paul Garcia: Coach Brooks says Russell Westbrook will play tonight. Robin Lopez is out. Rui is available as well.
Chase Hughes: The Wizards announce Rui Hachimura will return tonight after missing four games with knee soreness. Big news for them. However, Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Robin Lopez (ankle) are listed questionable. Bradley Beal is not on the injury report.
Chase Hughes: Bradley Beal is a gametime decision with his hip once again. Robin Lopez is also a gametime decision. But Rui Hachimura WILL play after missing some time with a shoulder injury.
Wizards forward Rui Hachimura will miss approximately three weeks with bi-lateral epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC). Hachimura was diagnosed with EKC on December 16 and missed the Wizards’ final two preseason games.
Fred Katz: Brooks on if Rui might play a rehab G League game: "We haven’t got to that point, but definitely he’ll practice. Probably not games because, one, we have a game every other night. If we can get some good practices in, he’ll be ready. But that’s not out of the equation either."
Candace Buckner: Brooks on Hachimura: “He’s been out for – what? – a month now. I don’t know if he’s coming back February but he’s on the court. Not doing much. Just left-hand layups, right-hand layups. All the work that our development team will put together.”
Hachimura re-joined the team on the sidelines for last night’s game vs. Portland. He will be re-evaluated in approximately two weeks as he continues to recover from a minor procedure associated with the groin injury he sustained on Dec. 16 in Detroit.
Chase Hughes: Rui Hachimura will be out several more weeks according to Scott Brooks. He has been away from the team since having surgery.
