Shooting guard Elliot Williams tore his left Achilles tendon during a voluntary workout Tuesday at the team’s practice facility in Tualatin and will require surgery. It’s unclear how much time Williams will miss, but the hard-luck third-year guard likely faces an extended rehabilitation that could last several months. The Blazers will set a time line for his return after he undergoes surgery, which has not yet been scheduled. Oregonian

It’s unclear how much time Williams will miss, but the hard-luck third-year guard likely faces an extended rehabilitation that could last several months. The Blazers will set a time line for his return after he undergoes surgery, which has not yet been scheduled. But historically, this injury features a laborious recovery. When Los Angeles Clippers guard Chauncey Billups snapped his Achilles on Feb. 6 last season, he missed the rest of the season and faced an eighth-month rehabilitation. According to published reports, Billups has returned to the court, but has not yet resumed five-on-five scrimmaging. Oregonian

According to (Elliot) Williams, that healing is progressing nicely. He had a check up in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, during which the doctor said his recovery was ahead of schedule. He's now able to shoot and dribble, though with a few limitations, roughly three months after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder capsule. TrailBlazers.com

After he's cleared, Williams plans on meeting up with fellow NBA players in Los Angeles and Houston for informal runs prior to the start of training camp. But until then, if you happen to be waiting around for Elliot, there's only one place you need to go. "You know me, I'm in the gym. I come back at night, just getting shots up with my left hand, shooting three's with my right. Doing all types of stuff." TrailBlazers.com

Rookie guard Elliot Williams underwent a magnetic resonance imaging test Monday on his injured left shoulder and the results were sent to a specialist in California for a precautionary examination. The Blazers expect Williams -- who suffered a dislocated left shoulder during a post-practice workout Thursday in Boston -- to be out at least seven more days before they learn when he might be able to return to the court.

The shoulder injury Trail Blazers guard Elliot Williams suffered Thursday in Boston will sideline him longer than the two days originally thought. The Blazers have scheduled an appointment for Williams to visit a shoulder specialist in Portland on Monday, when he will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging test. Williams will travel with the team to Washington D.C. for its game against the Wizards on Saturday, but then will return to Portland on Sunday for the date with the specialist. "Of course he's disappointed, but he knows that he has to go take care of this," Blazers coach Nate McMillan said. "It's just unfortunate. It's the second year where he could possibly be out (an extended time) due to an injury." Oregonian
