Lou Williams Hopes to Return to Form
The question surrounding the Atlanta Hawks as we dig deeper into the offseason is whether the team is simply restructuring in its attempt to join the league’s elite or is the franchise in the beginning stages of a lengthy rebuild.
With so much talent headed out of the door the Hawks’ current six consecutive season playoff streak may be in jeopardy. However, one player who still figures prominently into the team’s plan moving forward is guard Lou Williams.
Williams missed most of last season and the playoffs after he tore his right ACL, but says his rehab is on schedule and he can’t wait to get back on the court.
“I’m in a place where I’m just excited,” Williams told HOOPSWORLD of his recovery progress. “I feel like I’m close. Rehab is going very well. I’m just itching to get out there. I wish I could play summer league or any type of competitive basketball. I’m just excited to get back.
