Marvin Williams, unmasked. At least that's what the Utah Jazz forward is hoping for. Williams, who broke his nose while playing against San Antonio in November, said Saturday he is planning to ditch the protective mask he's been wearing. Maybe. Possibly. Hopefully. "I don't know," he said. "I'm gonna go through a little trial period the next 48 hours. I might retire it, I'm not sure yet." Williams wore the mask in the first half and part of the second during last Friday's loss to Cleveland. However, after being subbed out at one point, he stopped on the way to the bench and handed the mask to athletic trainer Gary Briggs. "That's the only reason I took it off, the strap was kind of bothering me," Williams said. "Sometimes we have to change the lining on it so it'll stay tight," he added. "It might just have to have a new lining on it. It was kind of bothering me so I just got tired of it." Standard-Examiner

The masked man isn’t going away. Utah Jazz forward Marvin Williams has been cleared to stop wearing his clear protective mask and originally had Monday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies circled as his first without it. But plans have changed. "I feel comfortable in it now," Williams said. Salt Lake Tribune
