An MRI showed a significant sprain to the ulnar collateral ligament, and team physician Michael Bernot recommended a second opinion from a specialist to determine the best course of treatment, the Hawks said Wednesday.

Stoudamire, one of the team's top 3-point shooters, has averaged 9.7 points and 1.2 assists in 20.3 minutes.

Atlanta also announced that rookie forward Marvin Williams is back with the team after missing a loss Monday at Detroit to visit his sick grandfather in North Carolina.
