Lou Williams injury: X-rays negative, more tests to come

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

X-rays on injured Hawks guard Lou Williams' knee came back negative. Williams will face another battery of tests once the team arrives back in Atlanta.

X-Rays on Lou Williams' injured knee came back negative. Now Williams will face a larger battery of tests once the Hawks are back in Atlanta starting with an MRI.

Williams was injured during the second quarter of Atlanta's 94-89 loss to Brooklyn. He went down on a drive to the basket where it looked like his knee just buckled. He had to be helped to the locker room and did not return to the game. It certainly didn't look good but only an MRI can reveal the extent of the injury.

If Williams is out for any length of time it will take away one of the Hawks' best offensive weapons. Williams came into Friday's game third on the team in scoring at over 14 points a game. DeShawn Stevenson is out until Monday and Anthony Morrow has missed the last several weeks with hip and back injuries. That leaves essentially just John Jenkins behind starters Jeff Teague and Devin Harris unless Larry Drew elects to go with a bigger lineup.
