Mo Williams returns to Clippers after 11 games

Los Angeles Clippers guard Mo Williams returned to the lineup against Minnesota on Thursday night after missing the previous 11 games with a sprained big toe on his left foot.

Williams was injured March 22 at New Orleans and entered at the start of the second quarter against the Wolves. Williams is averaging 13.6 points this season and has been one of their offensive leaders for the second unit all season.

The Clippers have hardly missed their quick-scoring guard, winning nine of their past 11 games. Randy Foye was averaging more than 17 points per game over the previous seven games, taking advantage of the increased playing time and shots.

It's nice timing for Williams, who has eight games to get back in the groove before the playoffs begin.
