The Hawks did not make roster cuts Friday and it now appears they will have the 20 player maximum through Sunday's exhibition game against the Pelicans in Biloxi Miss. Adonis Thomas who has not played in either exhibition game appears to be a candidate to be waived. On the injury front John Jenkins (lower back spasms) remains day-to-day. The shooting guard was at practice Friday but it's unlikely he will travel for the game against the Pelicans. His status could be part of the Hawks decision to delay roster cuts. Forward/center Gustavo Ayon (right shoulder) was at practice wearing an ice pack. He said he was disappointed being injured just 3:41 into his Hawks career. “Not good” Ayon said. “Right now there is inflammation. I will exercise and workout. Now the shoulder is weak.” Coach Mike Budenholzer offered little details about the rotations or playing time against the Pelicans.
Hawks will wait to make first cuts
