Alan Williams (knee surgery) is hopeful to return at some point in February or March. "I’m definitely looking forward to that moment," Williams said of his return. "Man, the emotion involved. I’ll probably miss my first five shots because I’ll be shooting the ball too hard and I’ll probably pick up three fouls quick." Williams had surgery back on September 25 with a six-month timetable, so it sounds like he might be a bit ahead of schedule. He averaged 11.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 steals after the All-Star break last season, so he could become a waiver-wire pickup later in the campaign.
