The team says Capela started "participating in modified shooting while continuing non-impact conditioning and strength work as part of his rehabilitation." He hasn't played since Jan. 29 due to the injury.
Atlanta acquired Capela as part of the 12-player deal with the Rockets and Wolves ahead of the trade deadline earlier this month. He was averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds for Houston this season.
Another player Atlanta acquired at the deadline, Skal Labissiere, also will be re-evaluated in two weeks, the Hawks said Wednesday.
Labissiere, out since Dec. 28, continues to rehab a knee injury, the team said.
