Mavericks' Deron Williams: Starts at point guard Thursday

Williams (calf) will start at point guard for Thursday's matchup with the Hornets, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Williams came into Thursday's contest as probable, so it was fully expected he'd take the court. Look for him to remain in the starting lineup and see minutes right around 30, although with J.J. Barea (calf) and Seth Curry (knee) sidelined, while Devin Harris is only in his second game back from injury, Williams could be forced to take on a heavier workload.
