No Surgery for Marvin Williams

by March 13, 2009

The Hawks forward thinks there’s a chance he might play again this season: “Hawks forward Marvin Williams will not undergo surgery on his injured lower back and could play again this season. Williams said he will undergo weeks of intensive rehabilitation after being examined by specialists at Duke University Wednesday. He wants to return before the Hawks wrap up the regular season April 15.’It’s going to be anywhere from four to six weeks,’ Williams told the Journal-Constitution Thursday. ‘I’m going to dive into this treatment, make sure I get good rest and hopefully get back out there.’ Williams said specialists recommended he take the ‘conservative’ approach and opt for treatment and rehabilitation over surgery.”
