Atlanta Hawks backup combo guard Lou Williams missed shootaround today due to what coach Mike Budenholzer called “exciting family news,” reports Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.
Viv also reported Williams missed practice yesterday as well.
The “exciting family news” is most likely the expected birth of a child — what else could it be? If this is the case, it will be Lou’s second child — he has a three-year-old daughter named Jada.
Williams’ status for tonight’s home game against former coach Larry Drew and the Milwaukee Bucks is uncertain.
