Blazers G Mo Williams (Hip Strain) Out For Two Weeks

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers guard Mo Williams will miss two weeks with a hip strain.

Portland Trail Blazers reserve guard Mo Williams was forced from action with a right hip injury during a Tuesday night game against the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum.

Williams departed with 4:52 remaining in the second quarter and he headed to the locker room in short order. He did not return to the bench for the second half and finished with four points (on 2-for-5 shooting) and three assists in 11 minutes.

The Blazers announced in the third quarter that Williams was dealing with "right hip pain" and that he was officially out for the night.

Update (Thursday): The Blazers announced on Thursday that an MRI has confirmed that Williams suffered a right hip strain. He is expected to miss the next two weeks. A two-week absence would sideline Williams for Portland's next eight games.

Williams, 31, is averaging 9.4 points, 4.5 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game this season.

Williams did not play when the Blazers lost to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.
