Charlotte Hornets forward Marvin Williams will be out for at least a week as he recovers from a left knee injury suffered on Nov. 25 against the New York Knicks.
The sharp-shooting power forward suffered a hyperextended left knee during an OT loss to the Knicks, 113-111, and an MRI revealed a bone bruise.
A release from the team said that the MRI did not reveal any further structural damage.
Bone bruises can be serious as they are a fracture of some of the internal layers of the bone. Williams, 30, will sit out for Saturday’s back-to-back against the Knicks and will be re-evaluated in a week.
