“I hope it goes away,” Horford said. “[Rest] is the key. I thought taking those couple days off would make it better, but it really didn’t. I just have to stay on it.”
Williams starts again
Hawks coach Larry Drew used his normal lineup against the Warriors on Wednesday. That meant Marvin Williams was back among the starters after playing well in reserve in recent victories against Orlando and Milwaukee.
Drew said he can get Williams more involved when he plays with the reserves.
"When he's in the starting lineup ... he can be a first option at times, he can be a fourth option at times," Drew said. "When he is in there with the reserves, he is going to be either one or two. To me, he's adapted well."
None of that has changed Williams' preference to start, which he has done for 318 of 395 career games. He said he doesn't take it personally when Drew opts for a bigger lineup and brings him off the bench.
"I’m not upset at him about anything, and I don’t think he’s upset at me," Williams said. "It’s just the choice he made, and I’ve got to live with it."
