Pachulia's rehabilitation from surgery on his partially torn right Achilles is progressing well, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Regarding his recovery, he stated, "I saw the doctor two weeks ago. I don't have any crutches... Doctors are pleased with how the surgery went and how the recovery is going." (Rotowire.com)
Recommendation: The upcoming unrestricted free agent is confident that the injury will not affect his prospects negatively this summer. Still, Pachulia is just one month into a 4-to-6 month recovery process, which should have him ready to go once training camp starts up in late September. The 6-11, 240 center shouldn't find himself unemployed too incredibly long once free agency commences in July.
