Williams Returns vs. Clippers

Williams Has Failed to Shake Injury Bug During Career

The injury was yet another setback for Williams, considering he dealt with a hip injury earlier in the season. He has also only appeared in all 82 games once during his entire career (2007-08), and injuries have always been a problem for the former Illinois star.

Williams is a three-time All-Star and was once seen as one of the best point guards in the league during his prime. He struggled at times last season for the Brooklyn Nets with a 38.7 percent shooting clip from the field, but he assumed a primary role for the Mavericks this season.

He is averaging 14 points, 5.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds and has even flashed moments of brilliance that reminded fans of the Williams who used to light up the scoreboard for the Utah Jazz in his early days.

Williams’ presence has helped keep the Mavericks in the postseason race in the Western Conference all season, and he filled the void left when Rajon Rondo signed with the Sacramento Kings during the offseason.
