It appears Thabo Sefolosha could make his exhibition debut on Wednesday, according to coach Mike Budenholzer. Sefolosha missed all last week, which included the Hawks’ first two exhibition games, while in New York for the trial that ended with his acquittal on three misdemeanor charges. The Hawks play the Spurs at Philips Arena Wednesday. “We’ll see how these next couple of days go but I’d say I am, we are, hopeful that he’ll at least be able to play a few minutes on Wednesday.”
Now he wants to get back to playing basketball with the Hawks. Sefolosha hasn’t fully recovered from the injuries apparently suffered when a police officer kicked his right leg. He has been cleared for all basketball activities and has participated in training camp before leaving this week for the trial. He hopes to be ready when the Hawks season opens later this month. “I hope I still have a long career,” he said.
