Active Sore left hamstring Open link
Williams is officially listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics after missing the past two due to left hamstring soreness. His likely return will cut into the surplus minutes that Shelvin Mack and Cartier Martin have seen with Williams sidelined.

Out Sore left hamstring Open link
Coach Mike Budenholzer said Williams is unavailable for Tuesday's contest vs. the Pistons due to a sore left hamstring. It will be the second straight game that he will miss due to the injury, and will open up additional minutes for Shelvin Mack and Cartier Martin on the wing.

Out Sore left hamstring Open link
Williams will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers due to soreness in his left hamstring. Shelvin Mack and Dennis Schroeder will see additional run off the bench in the backcourt with Williams sidelined.

Active Personal Open link
Williams was excused from and did not participate in Friday's practice due to the birth of his daughter, but he is with the team on Saturday for shootaround and will be available vs. the Nuggets. Of note is that Williams did not play in the Hawks' three games from March 7 to March 10 as he was a DNP-CD in each, with Budenholzer opting for a bigger lineup. It's unclear at this point what his role will be even when he does return to the lineup.
3/13/2014 4:50 PM
Out Personal Open link
Williams will not be with the Hawks on Thursday as they take on the Bucks. He missed shootaround due to what coach Mike Budenholzer called "exciting family news" and Budenhozler did not offer more details beyond that. Shelvin Mack will see additional run at the off-guard, with Dennis Schroeder also getting into the rotation as the Hawks' fourth guard. Williams did not play the last three games as he was a DNP-CD in each, with Budenholzer opting for a bigger lineup.
2/19/2014 4:25 PM
Active Migraine Open link
Williams left Tuesday's game with a migraine, but will play and come off the bench Wednesday. Lou said he has been dealing with migraines for 10 years and gets them frequently, and should be OK. He'll see extended run at the off-guard with DeMarre Carroll (hamstring) ruled out again.

 Comment3/19/2014 6:19 AMkdavehill 0% (0)According to BBM's status updates, it's been a combination of DNP-CDs and the birth of his daughter.
 Comment3/19/2014 6:12 AMthegreek 0% (0)Where has Lou been? Can't find any news on him, yet he's not playing.
 Comment1/14/2014 2:16 PMmhubes 0% (5)Very low point total projection. You don't think he'll get stronger (healthier) as we progress? Could be back to speed by fantasy playoffs.
 Comment1/6/2014 2:42 PMbearhugabearhugabear 100% (2)What's up with Lou? Has been very inconsistent. Not the sixth man any more with guys like Mack?
 Comment12/28/2013 8:24 PMsofsetzer 0% (0)judging from how awful brand and the atlanta bigs (minus millsap) have been, is it possible lou sees more minutes?
 Underrated11/15/2013 11:57 AM#28271 100% (1)Playing tonight!
 Comment11/15/2013 11:56 AMTrusted Advisor mbuser 100% (2)That escalated quickly. We've updated him to active for tonight and his games played total reflects the changes.
 Comment11/15/2013 7:20 AMkenjlev18 100% (1)Should games be higher?
 Comment11/13/2013 1:38 PMTrusted Advisor mbuser 100% (1)Check the Player Status page. Cleared for full contact today, just needs to get some practice time. Now is the time if you are going to do it.
 Comment11/13/2013 5:44 AMneilrizo 100% (1)Is it too early to stash him?
 Comment11/12/2013 8:12 PMTrusted Advisor mbuser 0% (0)He's their sixth man. Cartier Martin playing 23 mpg is what will largely change upon his return.
 Comment11/12/2013 1:43 PMjboldt73 0% (0)Does he step in @ SG moving Korver to SF and Carroll to the bench or does he come in as 6th man?
 Comment11/12/2013 12:56 PMTrusted Advisor mbuser 0% (0)Per @ajchawks, he's now stepped up to contact drills in practice, and his next step would be full contact in practices. He may only be a month out if all goes well.
 Comment9/25/2013 11:38 AMTrusted Advisor mbuser 0% (0)We were a bit optimistic, so scaled him back some games. He said with a smile that "he's supposed to say" that he'll be back before the ASB, so it's more being purposely vague than doom-and-gloom.
 Comment9/25/2013 8:12 AMhsahardid 0% (0)Does his projected games played reflect that he won't be ready to start the season? In a recent rotoworld blurb, he said that he's hoping to return before all-star break.
 Comment1/17/2013 12:35 AMTrusted Advisor mbuser 100% (1)More of it has to do with his splits as a starter/reserve. Played 39 mpg in his starts, shooting 48% FG and 46% 3PT. Minutes are way down and obviously his his FG% has been, too.
 Comment1/16/2013 9:43 PMzlickrick 100% (2)He is in a free-fall right now. How much of this has to do with the Hawks slump?
 Comment1/1/2013 10:02 AMkslight 100% (2)Upped his 3s, FG% and reduced his FTs. Upped m/g to 28 long-term and will wait until Harris returns to adjust more.
 Underrated1/1/2013 1:24 AMzlickrick 100% (2)Due for a bump? He is exceeding projections in almost every cat.
 Comment12/31/2012 11:42 PMgcbillinois 0% (3)Lou works with a big PG like Jrue, not with another small G.
 Comment11/19/2012 7:08 AMTrusted Advisor mbuser 100% (4)I like the use of the word possible there. Let's see what Drew does in a few more games, the on/off numbers say Teague should be on more.
 Underrated11/19/2012 6:54 AMkelpjuice 100% (3)possible bump with increase in mpg and overall stats. getting more pt and teague getting less
