Hornets’ Williams Calls Out Carl Landry
Though (Carl) Landry missed his second consecutive game with a sprained right ankle, (Hornets coach Monty) Williams said he had no idea what’s going on with the forward’s injury.
“It’s one of those situations that if I say too much right now, I could be sharp with my words,’’ Williams said.
Williams praised guard Jarrett Jack (sore ankle), forward Jason Smith (sore thigh) and Al-Farouq Aminu (foot) for playing through their injuries. But without naming anyone specifically, Williams lashed out at players that he believes might have already quit on the season with 13 games remaining.
“If you have guys who think these games don’t mean anything, those are not the guys we want going forward,’’ Williams said. “I’ve addressed it. It’s nothing new to our team. Trust me, we’ve seen it, and we’ve seen it here.
