Clint Capela's first season with the Atlanta Hawks was nothing short of spectacular. The veteran center led the NBA in rebounding and formed a formidable 1-2 punch with point guard Trae Young. Following Capela's first year in Atlanta, the front office rewarded him with a two-year contract extension.

Unfortunately, the historically-short offseason did not agree with Capela mentally or physically. The 27-year-old admitted to the team lacking excitement and a nagging heel injury which slowed him down this season. With that being said, let's review his 2021-22 season.
