Hawks G Lou Williams’ recovery ‘coming along great’

Atlanta Hawks guard Lou Williams tore his ACL in January, an injury that ended his season. While he told Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it was tough to sit out the remained of the year – including the playoffs – as a result of the significant injury, Williams said that his rehab has been “coming along great.”

It’s coming along great. It’s going to very long and challenging summer for me trying to prepare myself to get back on the basketball court. It’s a challenge that I’m ready for. It’s not one I can dodge if I want to continue to play basketball at a high level. I’m ready get it started.

Following his ACL injury, Williams was sidelined for the team’s final 43 games, and he had to watch the Hawks in the playoffs without him. He said it was difficult and frustrating to sit on the sidelines, but he’s excited to continue his recover in effort to return next season.

This will be an interesting offseason for the Hawks, as they are expected to part ways with coach Larry Drew. Beyond their unresolved coaching situation, Williams, John Jenkins and Al Horford are the only players on Atlanta’s rosters with guaranteed contracts for next season.
