The Hawks announced that Ortiz was diagnosed with an injury to his right medial meniscus.  Ortiz will continue to have the knee iced and the team will check up on him again after a few days of rest in order to determine their next course of action.  There is currently no ETA for his return.

While a diagnosis for Jose Ortiz's injury has not been released to the public, it seems as though it could be a fairly serious injury.  According to someone close to the situation, Ortiz is not able to bend or stretch the knee.  Worst case scenario, according to Sanspo, would be a torn ACL -- that would probably put him out for about 6 months.
