The Hawks waived Krejci (ankle) on Wednesday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

Krejci is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pacers due to a left ankle sprain.

With Atlanta getting torched by Toronto, Krejci contributed his first points of the season. The 22-year-old averaged 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 30 games as a rookie with Oklahoma City last season, but he won't see that level of usage on a competitive Atlanta squad....

Hawks' Vit Krejci: Available to make debut
Krejci will be available to play Thursday against the Bucks in their preseason matchup in Abu Dhabi, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Hawks' Vit Krejci: Traded to Atlanta
Krejci (knee) was traded by the Thunder to the Hawks on Tuesday in exchange for Maurice Harkless and a second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Krejci underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in April after presumably playing through the issue at the end of last season. After the All-Star break, the guard, drafted in 2020, appeared in 24 straight games for the Thunder and averaged 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 27.4 minutes per contest. He's expected to be healthy by the start of the season, but he'll face stiff competition for playing time, especially if he misses a large portion of training camp while rehabbing his knee....

Thunder's Vit Krejci: Opts for knee surgery
Krejci underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last Tuesday, Nick Crain of SI.com reports.
Krejci was presumably playing through the knee issue late in the season, but the injury didn't deter the Thunder from giving the second-year guard as many minutes as he could handle down the stretch. From the All-Star break onward, Krejci appeared in all 24 of the Thunder's games, making eight starts while averaging 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 three-pointers in 27.4 minutes per contest. He should be back to full strength for training camp and will get the chance to compete for a spot in the Thunder's rotation to begin the 2022-23 campaign, but expect his playing time to take a significant hit with the likes of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle), Josh Giddey (hip), Luguentz Dort (shoulder) and Tre Mann (hamstring) all expected to be 100 percent healthy....

While he hasn't shot the ball well in those games, Krejci has remained active as a playmaker and rebounder.... See More ... See Less
