Injured Hawes making progress


Sidelined Sixers center Spencer Hawes is expected to "resume basketball activities" Monday, coach Doug Collins said.

The Sixers remain hopeful that Hawes will return to action on March 12. That was the initial target suggeted by Hawes' foot specialist, Richard Fenkel, after Hawes was examined during the All-Star break.

Upon his return, Hawes will be limited to about 5 minutes per quarter initially. He also would have limitations on the minutes he played in the second game of back-to-backs.

Hawes has played in only 14 games this season (the Sixers are 12-2) and has not seen action since logging 33 minutes against the Lakers on Feb. 6.
