John Jenkins: Summer League Bio

John Jenkins' second season in a Hawks uniform was cut short by a season-ending back injury.  The back clearly impacted his shooting ability, but his rookie season was a fine one, as he shot better than 38 percent from three, 45 percent from the field and averaged 6.1 points in 61 games.

The Hawks are excited to get a healthy Jenkins back and are hoping he returns to his rookie season form.  He'll be playing in his third Summer League, so he's the veteran of this roster.  Saturday will be his first game in almost eight months, so hopefully this week will launch him into a bounce-back season.
