Hawks' Williams out with sprained right knee


Posted Jan 18, 2013 8:52 PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta guard Lou Williams left the Hawks' game against Brooklyn in the second quarter with a sprained right knee and will not return.

The reserve guard stole the ball and was driving to the basket with around 7 minutes left when his leg appeared to give out as he tried to plant and go up for the shot. He limped out of bounds behind the basket and was eventually taken to the locker room area.

The Hawks said he would undergo testing Friday night and Saturday.
