Marvin Williams is out for Mon @ NJN & Wed @ IND.

Marvin Williams Out For Two Games

From the Associated Press:

Atlanta Hawks forward Marvin Williams will miss at least two games because of a sprained left ankle he suffered in Saturday’s win over Chicago.

The Hawks say Williams will not be with the team for both Monday night’s game at New Jersey and Wednesday’s game at Indiana.

Williams is averaging 10.9 points and 6.0 rebounds as the starting small forward. He hurt his ankle midway through the first quarter of Saturday’s win over the Bulls and did not return.

Atlanta’s options at forward include Tracy McGrady and Vladimir Radmanovic. Hawks coach Larry Drew also at times has moved Jason Collins into the lineup at center, pushing Al Horford to power forward and Josh Smith to small forward.

Michael CunninghamJohn HollingerJohn Schumann, and Marc Spears have also confirmed that it’s true.

With New Jersey having a small starting lineup, I would think Tracy McGrady will get the nod to replace Marvin Williams in the starting lineup tonight. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Coach Larry Drew go with Willie Green either and move Joe to the Small Forward position.
