Jay Williams waived from NBDL's Toros to nurse injury

12/30/2006 - NBA

AUSTIN, Texas -- Jay Williams' comeback was put on hold
Saturday when the NBA Development League's Austin Toros waived him
so he can rehabilitate a nagging groin injury.

Williams, still trying to make it back after severely injuring
his left leg in a 2003 motorcycle accident, played three games for
Austin. He averaged 6.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 28
minutes per game.

Williams, the national player of the year at Duke in 2002 and
the No. 2 pick in that year's NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls, was
replaced on the roster by former Boston College star Troy Bell.
