    Hachimura (groin) has been able to do some light work under the supervision of team trainers in recent days, but he has yet to receive clearance to practice, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Impact

    Per Fred Katz of The Athletic, Hachimura has been able to do some light shooting without jumping as of Tuesday, and while it sounds as though the rookie might have been able to do some more since then, he's still realistically at least a few weeks away from playing again. According to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post, coach Scott Brooks suggested Friday that he wasn't certain if Hachimura would be back until February, so the forward would likely need to resume practicing by late next week to keep hope alive for a January return. Hachimura hasn't played since Dec. 16 due to a groin contusion that later necessitated a procedure.

    Hachimura (groin) isn't expected to return before February, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.

    Impact

    Hachimura has been sidelined since mid-December after undergoing surgery, and he's still not close to a return. The Wizards should provide an update on his availability as he nears full health.

    News

    Hachimura (groin) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Impact

    A groin issue has kept Hachimura out since mid-December and eventually required a procedure. Even if Hachimura is cleared to resume on-court activity once he's re-evaluated, he may need to put in at least a few practices before the Wizards are comfortable clearing him for game action.
