Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Williams will finish an outstanding 2017-18 campaign missing the final two games due to an ankle injury, though he still finished the season posting averages of 22.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.4 three-pointers across 32.8 minutes. After signing a three-year, $24 million extension with the Clippers back in February, Williams will be back in Los Angeles in the fall for training camp and should continue to be one of the team's top offensive threats. Austin Rivers (elbow) is expected to return Wednesday, while guys like Tyrone Wallace and Sindarius Thornwell should see added minutes on the wing with Williams out.
Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Williams sat out Monday's game against the Pelicans with a sprained right ankle and while the Clippers have nothing to play for Wednesday, it appears they're at least considering allowing him to play. That said, it will be worth it to monitor Williams' status following Wednesday's morning shootaround, as another update on his availability should be provided after that session. Austin Rivers (elbow) is also questionable, but if both Rivers and Williams both sit out, some combination of Tyrone Wallace, C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwellwould see the bulk of the backcourt minutes.
Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points reports. As expected, Williams will be held out of Monday's contest, which is the Clippers' first game since they've been eliminated from playoff contention. Williams' injury isn't being viewed as anything serious, as the veteran is likely getting a night off after logging a career-high in minutes in his 13th NBA season. In Williams' absence, look for Tyrone Wallace, C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell to all get some extended run in the backcourt Monday.
Williams is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Pelicans with a sprained right ankle, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. With the Clippers officially out of playoff contention, the team is likely going to give Williams some time off to end the season, especially after the veteran put together a career-best campaign with the team. With Williams not expected to play Monday, both Tyrone Wallace and Sindarius Thornwell should be line for extended minutes against New Orleans.
Williams scored 25 points (6-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 10-12 FT) to go along with five assists across 31 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 134-115 loss to the Nuggets. Williams struggled a bit from the field, but he still exceeded his season average in scoring with a strong afternoon at the foul line. He was also effective as a playmaker, as his five assists were his most in seven games. Williams continues to play a key role for an undermanned Clippers team and will next face a favorable matchup with the Pelicans.
