Williams out of lineup for Hornets

Bremerton’s Marvin Williams, starting power forward for the Charlotte Hornets, missed Friday’s loss against Golden State because of a strained shoulder. He injured it in the first half of Wednesday’s loss against Portland.

Williams has been playing with a nagging knee injury, the Hornets said earlier this month.

The 6-foot-9 Williams is averaging 6.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 24 minutes a game for the Hornets. He started Charlotte’s first 16 games. He’s also expected to miss Saturday’s game at Atlanta.

Charlotte is off to a disappointing 4-13 start.
