Mo Williams back soon for Jazz
Mo Williams could return to games as early as Wednesday after he went through his first full-contact practice Sunday, one day shy of two months since he underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb.
The veteran point guard has not played since Dec. 22 at Miami, and has played in just 24 games since being traded to the Jazz in the offseason.
That he is nearing a return is welcome news on an otherwise bleak injury front. Al Jefferson will miss his second game Monday at Milwaukee with a sprained left ankle, while Paul Millsap is a gametime decision with the same injury.
