Heat don't expect Williams to play for remainder of season�


Recommended Posts

MIAMI … (AP) … The Miami Heat do not expect to play point guard Jason Williams in the final eight games of the regular season, so he can rest his sore right knee.


Williams has been bothered by tendinitis in the knee for much of the season. In his place, Gary Payton is expected to start at point guard for the Heat, who are trying to secure the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.


Heat coach Pat Riley said Wednesday that surgery is not an immediate option, but cautioned that it may be needed in the

offseason. Riley said he was confident the rest will allow Williams to return for the first round of the playoffs.




I think having Payton gives us this luxury for Williams to rest up for the second season
