Williams said Thursday that he does not plan to opt out of his contract for the 2019-20 season, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. While Williams could always change his mind, the decision to pick up his $15 million player option makes sense, as he's likely to have trouble securing another longer-term deal on the open market. The veteran remains a decent source of scoring, threes and rebounding, but he'll turn 33 in June and is clearly on the downswing of his career.
Williams (foot) is out for the Hornets' final game of the regular season against the Magic. Wednesday will mark five straight absences for the veteran, who is dealing with a strained right foot. He remains day-to-day, however, which is a good sign for the Hornets if they manage to make the playoffs.
Williams (foot) will be active for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, but he's unlikely to play, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Essentially, the Hornets will have Williams as an option in an emergency situation, but the expectation is that the veteran will not see the floor as he continues to nurse a right foot injury. Williams will likely remain out for Wednesday's regular season finale, as well, but the Hornets will revisit his status at shootaround in the morning.
Williams (foot) is in danger of missing the Hornets' final two games of the regular season, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Williams has already missed the last three contests, and he implied after Sunday's game against Detroit that he expects to remain out for at least Tuesday's game in Cleveland, and likely the season finale Wednesday against Orlando, as well. In his absence, the Hornets have turned to Frank Kaminsky and Miles Bridges for increased minutes up front.
Williams (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against Detroit. Williams is set to miss a third-straight game due to a right foot strain. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist should continue to start in place of Williams, while Frank Kaminsky will likely continue to see an expanded role off the bench.
