Tim Williams to miss substantial time for New Mexico

New Mexico Lobos senior forward Tim Williams will miss a substantial amount of time with a stress reaction in his foot, according to a statement by head coach Craig Neal.

What It Means:

Huge blow for the Lobos as it sounds like Williams is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season. It is unclear when and if he will be able to return as these types of injuries take multiple weeks of rest before a player can even try to practice. The forward was the team's second-leading scorer with 17.9 points per game. Elijah Brown will have to attempt to shoulder even more of the team's scoring load in Williams' absence.

The Lobos are currently 13-9 and stand fourth in the Mountain West Conference. Our models give them an 11.0 percent probability of making the NCAA Tournament, which will likely drop with Williams out indefinitely.
