Lou Williams injury: Hawks guard leaves game with knee injury

USA TODAY Sports

Hawks guard Lou Williams suffered what looked like a knee injury on a drive to the basket in the second quarter of Friday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Lou Williams suffered a knee injury on a drive with just over seven minutes to go in the second quarter against the Brooklyn Nets. It looked like Williams knee buckled on the drive and he hopped his way past the basket and into the aisle of the Barclays Center before collapsing. Williams had to be helped to the locker room.

The Hawks are already without Al Horford who didn't start and has not played because of a sore hamstring. DeShawn Stevenson and Anthony Morrow didn't make the trip to Brooklyn due to knee and back injuries.

Williams was scoreless in just over nine minutes. He came into the game averaging 14.2 points on 42 percent shooting. He has appeared in all 38 games this season including nine starts. That streak could be in jeopardy after this injury.
