“He’s been back into the ball program albeit a little bit controlled”
“He’s been able to get back into skills over the past 6 weeks”
“We anticipate that before Christmas he’s going to be back into full skills & have a good preparation going into the 2022 season.” Hawks Physical Performance Manager Luke Boyd
FANTASY IMPACT: If there are no set-backs over the pre-season Sicily should be available for the start of the 2022 season, the length of time since he ruptured his ACL will be significant at Round 1. However the Hawks have a new senior coach in Sam Mitchell, Sicily is a must watch over the pre-season for positioning which could impact his fantasy output. Hawthorn have added a few players to their defensive structure over the last couple of years which could also impact his output.
