|Lou Williams: Scores seven off bench|
Williams racked up seven points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and four assists over 14 minutes during Saturday's 117-108 loss to the Knicks.
The Scoop: Williams has only appeared in four games since Dec. 17. First, he was sidelined for five games due to COVID-19 protocols, but his recent four-game absence appears to have been coach Nate McMillan's decision. Delon Wright continues to operate as the primary backup to Trae Young this season, and Williams' role with the team moving forward is unclear. His name will likely be mentioned frequently leading up to the Feb. 10 trade deadline.
