Unseld says Rui Hachimura has cleared health & safety protocols and will start individual work soon. – 12:15 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Coach Unseld Jr. says Rui Hachimura has cleared protocol and will soon begin individual work as he prepares for his return. Sounds like that will happen early this week. – 12:12 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Rui Hachimura is out of COVID protocol and can start individual workouts — he hasn’t joined the Wizards yet. – 12:09 PM

Deni Avdija is playmakin’ y’all pic.twitter.com/f1kM8qt54z8:29 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Deni Avdija is matched up with Julius Randle on defense. That’s a tough test, as Randle is one of the more physical players in the league and completely dominated the Wizards last season. – 7:54 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Rui Hachimura likely has a few days left in protocols before he joins the team. He’ll start with individual work first: wapo.st/3BMiBGr11:11 AM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Wes Unseld’s approach this preseason has been all about diligence and patience. It’ll be the same getting Rui Hachimura back up to speed. washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/10…4:52 PM

The latest on Rui Hachimura as he awaits being cleared to practice with the Wizards following a weeks-long absence due to personal reasons: nbcsports.com/washington/wiz…3:28 PM
