Atlanta Hawks backup combo guard Lou Williams is expected to return tonight against the Denver Nuggets after missing a game and three straight practices, reports Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.
The fact the he was at shootaround this morning is a good sign.
Williams was not at practice Wednesday or Friday and missed Thursday’s shootaround, as well as the game that night against the Bucks due to the birth of his daughter. This is Lou’s second child — both girls. He has a 3-year-old daughter named Jada.
It will be good to have Lou back, although he hasn’t made much of a contribution in the last two wins and seems to have fallen out of the Hawks’ rotation as he hasn’t logged any minutes in the past three games, despite being healthy.
Hopefully Lou gets back in the rotation tonight.
