Williams Will Get Opportunity with Wolves
“I (Coach Rick Adelman) don’t worry about him (Derrick Williams) as much as you guys do,” Adelman said after Thursday’s practice. Williams, who works at both forward positions, did not play in Wednesday’s opening-night victory over Orlando. A former second-overall pick, Williams’ playing time has fluctuated since he joined the team.
“He’s going to get a chance to play when it looks like there is a good opportunity for him,” Adelman said. “But there are other guys, too. Right now Robbie Hummel’s played very well, the whole month he’s been here. It could be one of those guys. It could be (Shabazz Muhammad), who has played well. Nobody has separated himself. (Williams’) best spot is the four spot, and it’s almost impossible to get him minutes at the four spot.”
