Marvin Williams Update: Hawks SF Expected Back For Knicks Game

While it appears increasingly likely that the Atlanta Hawks will be without the services of All-Star SG Joe Johnson in their game Wednesday against the New York Knicks, SF Marvin Williams is expected back after missing Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls to attend a funeral in his home-town of Seattle:

Williams, a 6'9 245 forward, is reportedly unhappy with his role in Atlanta's offense, but his length and athleticism should be helpful in a match-up against Carmelo Anthony.

In 28 games this season, the 25-year old is averaging 9.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists on 43% shooting.

Without Johnson, who has the size to play both wing positions, Williams could see his minutes increase, as he is currently averaging only 24 a game this year.
