Holdahl: Blazers G Elliot Williams "Ahead Of Schedule" In Rehab

86
Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports that Portland Trail Blazers guard Elliot Williams is progressing nicely in his rehabilitation from shoulder surgery back in March. ------------------------------ He had a check up in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, during which the doctor said his recovery was ahead of schedule. He's now able to shoot and dribble, though with a few limitations, roughly three months after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder capsule. "I'm actually starting to shoot now. Basically healing and getting back in shape," said Williams. "I can pretty much do everything except contact. Not any long range shooting. (Head team trainer) Jay (Jensen) is pretty careful on what I can do. I'm just listening to Jay, working hard on things I now I can improve on with the right hand, becoming a better player." ... "You know me, I'm in the gym. I come back at night, just getting shots up with my left hand, shooting three's with my right. Doing all types of stuff." ------------------------------ Williams, 23, averaged 3.7 points in 6.2 minutes per game in 24 appearances for the Blazers last season. He is not expected to participate in 2012 Las Vegas Summer League but should be ready to go for training camp in the fall. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
