Alan Williams has upped the intensity of his workouts but there’s still no hard target date for his return to practice.
Williams was a force down the stretch last season but he may not see much, if any, action this year. The Suns would probably like to see him on the court before they wrap up shop but also know that there’s little sense in pushing him back too soon. It’ll be easier to project Big Sauce’s outlook once he does get back on the practice court but he’s just a stash for now. Considering he’ll still have to deal with Alex Len for playing time, he’s not a particularly strong one. And that’s if Tyson Chandler gets shut down and the Suns abandon smaller lineups with Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender working on the frontline. Perhaps next year we’ll see what Williams can really do.
