In a new development, it looks like the 23-year-old is no longer following any accounts on Instagram except for his apparel page.
Hachimura is a very promising young player for Washington, and the organization is surely hoping that he will be able to report to the team in the near future.
The former first-round pick has completed two seasons at the NBA level so far. He already has career averages of 13.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
The Gonzaga University product figures to have a very exciting future in the league, and he’s likely a key part of Washington’s plans.
Hopefully, Hachimura will be able to return to action soon. Of course, his mental health should be his top priority at all times.
