Default Hawks guard Lou Williams out for the year with torn ACL

The Atlanta Hawks just received some most unfortunate news.

Hawks guard Lou Williams experienced a right knee sprain during Atlanta’s game last night at Brooklyn. X-rays taken during the game at the Barclays Center were negative. An MRI and examination today by Dr. Michael Bernot at Peachtree Orthopedics in Atlanta revealed a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

yea thats a good thing but he needs to learn to dribble the ball and he will have to run point at times which isnt a pretty sight.

That's a tough loss. You hate to see a guy having the kind of year he's having go down like that.

Hawks join the list with Toronto and New York as teams who need to make a trade

This is extremely unfortunate to hear but it's even worse that I watched his knee buckle in front of my eyes. It's disheartening when a valuable member goes down with an injury for the rest of the season but the upside is that the Hawks can try to obtain another player before the deadline is over to make a solid playoff push and convince Josh Smith to stay.
