Marvin Williams left in the first quarter of Saturday's contest against the Chicago Bulls and the Atlanta Hawks have announced that he has a grade 1 ankle sprain and will not return to this game.
#Hawks say Grade 1 ankle sprain for Marvin Williams. He won't return.— Michael Cunningham (@ajchawks) January 8, 2012
No idea of the severity of the injury and how long Williams might be out at this point. Vladimir Radmanovic started the second half at small forward and has scored 17 points off the bench. With Radmanovic being primarily used at the small forward position it also means more playing time for rookie forward Ivan Johnson who checked into the game in the third quarter as the back up power forward.
