Marvin Williams won't be in uniform Wednesday night when the Hawks wrap up their six-game road trip in Los Angeles against the Clippers. Williams was injured in the second half of Tuesday night's 118-117 overtime loss to the Nuggetswhen he fell to the floor hard on a dunk attempt.

No foul was issued on the play and Williams briefly returned as an inbounds passer on one of the Hawks final possessions. The Hawks will be shorthanded against the Clippers Willie Green and Ivan Johnson also expected to miss the game. Green has missed the last seven games with a back injury that has developed into a hamstring problem. Johnson is returned home to Texas earlier in the trip and is awaiting the birth of his first child. He is expected to rejoin the team on Friday in Atlanta.
