Rod Thorn: Hawes Could Be Out “For A While”
Sixers president Rod Thorn said Spencer Hawes will be in a walking boot "for a while."
The Sixers are missing his high-post passing and 8.3 rebounds per game. While he isn't the best post defender, he gives the Sixers some size and the ability to pull the opposing center out of the paint with his perimeter game.
However, the Sixers should not rush him back, they are firmly entrenched in the playoff picture and have played well enough without him, but he could be a nice addition for playoff positioning later in the season.
