Williams correctly points out the club could not anticipate second-year power forward Darius Miller suffering a stress fracture in his left foot that required corrective surgery in September, sidelining him indefinitely, nor the toe chip fracture sustained by forward Ryan Anderson that still keeps him off the floor and could for several more weeks. Tuesday moves, he said, have been pondered for the last few weeks. "I don't make rash decisions," Williams said. "It's like everybody always thinks the worst all the time. It's seven games. There's no need for all that. We're going to try to tweak our roster as best we can to try to get better. That's the bottom line." New Orleans Times-Picayune

On off days, Thomas has continued to enjoy being a full-time New Orleans resident, including some of the perks that are specific to this area. “I love it here – the gym’s available 24 hours a day, and I love to fish,” Thomas said, smiling. “It’s a win-win for me. I get to work on my craft every day, then I get to relax on the water. In the past two years, I’ve probably only been home (to New York) for a total of maybe three or four weeks. “I love this city, the food and how nice people are. I’m happy to be re-signed.” NBA.com
