Lou Williams injury: Hawks guard now day-to-day, could return soon

USA TODAY Sports

Lou Williams' recovery from last season's knee injury is nearly over and he could be back on the court in the next few games.

Lou Williams long road back from the torn ACL that he suffered last January is almost over. The Hawks guard was upgraded by the team to day-to-day status by the team on Thursday and could be back on the court soon. The Hawks haven't said when but it could happen as soon as Friday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Lou recently talked about his status with the AJC's Chris Vivlamore:

"Medically, I'm cleared. Everything else is just basketball. Whenever coach feels like he is ready to throw me out there, that's on him."

The NBA doesn't have injured lists. Each team is allowed a 15 man roster but only 13 can be active on a given night. That designation must be made one hour prior to tip off. Williams has been on Atlanta's roster the entire season but has been inactive every game. There really is no status distinctions in pro basketball like there are for the NFL. An NBA player can be out, inactive and in street clothes one night and then back in the starting lineup the next night.

What I take from the Hawks listing Williams is day-to-day is that he is going to be back soon and most likely in the next few games and maybe even on Friday against the Sixers.
