Rick Bonnell: Marvin Williams will play and start
More Rumors in this Storyline
Rick Bonnell: Rather surprising @Charlotte Hornets development: Marvin Williams has been upgraded to questionable, so he might play tonight versus Denver Nuggets. Williams suffered a right shoulder strain Sunday, and projection Monday was he would miss at least a week.
Rick Bonnell: Marvin Willams had some soreness in his left ankle (the sprain that caused him to miss four games) on the flight home from SLC. He’ll start, but Hornets will monitor that closely.
Josh Lewenberg: OG Anunoby will not return this afternoon, Raptors say. Sprained right ankle.
Spencer Percy: QCH Source: Marvin Williams will be back from left ankle sprain “within a week”. #Hornets start 4-game west coast w/ a back-to-back in Phoenix and Denver Sunday-Monday. I’m guessing most realistic return for Marvin will be next Thursday in Portland. #BuzzCity
Mark Montieth: Marvin Williams hurt on that play. Being helped off court
Rick Bonnell: Nasty turned left ankle for Marvin Williams.
Rick Bonnell: No fracture for Marvin Williams’ left ankle.
Charlotte Hornets: INJURY UPDATE: @hornets MRI today revealed Marvin Williams has bone bruise on L knee consistent w/ prev diagnosed hyperextended L knee. No structural damage revealed. He is out for tonight’s @hornets game vs NYK & will be re-evaluated in one week.

“Hopefully I can go back to Houston and compete for a title. There’s nothing like learning from James [Harden] and Chris Paul, Gerald Green, Eric Gordon and those guys,” House told Basketball Insiders. “And now with the additions of [Iman] Shumpert and Kenneth Faried, I’m just excited to hopefully get something done so I can be out there and competing with those guys.”
“I’ve been in this league 40 years. A lot of players got traded on Thursday. Guess what’s going to happen next year? A lot of players going to get traded, and a lot of players will stay home. I talked to our guys. They’re in a good place. That’s all that matters.” But are they, really? That’s not the case if you talk to sources close to several key players. “Guys will be professional, but it will never be the same,” one agent who represents a Lakers player said.
“Scott Foster, man. I never really talk about officiating or anything like that, but just rude and arrogant,” said Harden, who finished with 30 points to extend his streak of 30-point performances to 32 games, the second longest in NBA history. “I mean, you aren’t able to talk to him throughout the course of the game, and it’s like, how do you build that relationship with officials? And it’s not even that call [on the sixth foul]. It’s just who he is on that floor.
“It’s pretty frustrating. And I’m probably going to get hit [with a fine], but honestly, I don’t really say anything. I’m a pretty quiet guy, to myself, but it’s one of those things where you can’t voice your opinion. You can’t have a conversation with someone that’s officiating the game. You’re getting a tech. It’s pretty sad.”
There was an enormous discrepancy in free throws, and Dion Waiters is sick of it. After watching his team attempt 12 free throws compared to 35 for Philadelphia, Erik Spoelstra said: “I’m not even going to get into it. I told our players not to get into it. It doesn’t look right. [But] we had opportunities. We were up one [with 1:37 left] regardless of the foul discrepancy.”
