Mo Williams missed his second straight game on Friday because of his groin injury and Byron Scott doesn't sound optimistic about tonight's game against Sacramento. It's not the danger of a back-to-back or getting Williams to learn the offense as much as it's Scott admittedly being paranoid.
"I'm analyzing it a little too much, being a little too overcautious about it,'' Scott said. "I normally leave it up to my players, but I know how this thing can affect him throughout the season if it's not completely gone."
Both Williams and Scott feel comfortable with his knowledge of the offense, even though Williams missed the first two weeks of practice and only played in one preseason game. Scott called Williams 50/50 for tonight, but then said he was really looking forward to getting Williams through another practice on Sunday before unleashing him "in a worst-case scenario" Tuesday night at home against Atlanta.
"We're close. Very close,'' Williams said.
