  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Out another four weeks

    General manager Mitch Kupchak said Friday that Williams (back) will be re-evaluated in four weeks but is still expected to return this season, Schuyler Callihan of SI.com reports.

    Williams hasn't played since Dec. 8 due to a lower-back injury and is taking longer than expected to fully heal, prompting the Hornets to shut him down from activity for another month. Since the Hornets aren't in playoff contention and Williams will still require some ramp-up time even if he's cleared to resume on-court work after the four-week re-evaluation, a return in the latter half of March looks to be a best-case scenario. Fantasy managers in most redraft leagues shouldn't bother holding Williams in light of his prolonged absence, while Nick Richards should have some stability as the team's starting center sans Williams.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Out at least another week

    Williams (back), who has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls, will be unavailable for at least another week.

    Williams has missed a month due to a lower-back contusion, and he's being evaluated on a week-to-week basis for now.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Without clear return timeline

    Williams, who remains out for Monday's game against the Bulls, is without a clear timeline for a return while he continues to recover from a lower-back contusion, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Williams hasn't played since Dec. 8 due to the injury and will miss his 14th consecutive game Monday. The Hornets initially listed Williams as doubtful ahead of each of his first 12 absences, but he's since taken "out" tags into two straight contests. The change in designation seemingly supports the notion that Williams is without a clear timeline for a return, with Boone noting that the second-year center has been able to take part in pregame work but isn't yet participating in practices. Fantasy managers shouldn't count on Williams playing in any of the Hornets' four games this week.
