Hawks Vs. Trail Blazers: Josh Smith, Louis Williams sick, status for tonight's game undetermined

New, 3 comments

The Atlanta Hawks are in the midst of a two game losing streak and could be without two key players tonight when they take on the Portland Trail Blazers. According to the AJC's Chris Vivlamore, both Louis Williams and Josh Smith are sick and their status for tonight's game is currently in question.

Obviously this would be a huge blow to the Hawks if either Williams or Smith were unable to play tonight. Smith is averaging 13.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game this season while Williams is averaging 12.6 to go along with 3.4 assists.

Josh Smith missed Atlanta's win in Oklahoma City earlier this season with an ankle injury. Larry Drew opted to go with Anthony Tolliver as his starting power forward on that occasion. Williams is averaging 23 minutes off the bench and that would likely be split up amongst several players if he were unable to go tonight.
