ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Lobos will have to compete for the Mountain West crown without star forward Tim Williams.
He is out indefinitely with a stress reaction in his left foot. It’s the latest in a string of injuries that have hit the Lobos program.
Head coach Craig Neal revealed the news about Williams Tuesday morning in a statement.
“It’s with my great regret that I have to announce that Tim Williams is going to miss a substantial amount of time. We don’t know how long he will be out, but he has a stress reaction in his left foot. The most critical thing is that we take care of Tim. He has been a big part of our program and our biggest concern is that he gets healthy.”
So far this season Williams has averaged over 17 points and 7 rebounds per game. The Lobos are at UNLV Wednesday.
The game has a 9 p.m. start time and will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.
