Lou Williams' season is over. An MRI Saturday revealed that Williams tore his ACL in Friday night's loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
X-rays on Williams' knee came back negative Friday night, but further tests showed the tear.
Coach Larry Drew told Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore that the loss of the shooting guard was "devastating."
Williams was having a solid season; in 39 games, he averaged 14.1
points, 2.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.1 steals and
.3 blocks with 72 3-pointers made.
Keep an eye on rookie guard John Jenkins, who should pick up minutes with Williams out. Jenkins is available in just about every Yahoo league (0 percent owned). Anthony Morrow could also pick up minutes when healthy.
Meanwhile, Al Horford (hamstring) is back in the Hawks' lineup tonight against the San Antonio Spurs.
