New Mexico's Tim Williams cleared to resume basketball activities

New Mexico Lobos senior forward Tim Williams (foot) has been medically cleared to resume all basketball-related activities, per Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports.

What It Means:

Williams has been out since January 28 with a stress reaction in his foot, missing seven games. It is unclear when his return date would be, but the Lobos have one regular season game remaining on Saturday before the Mountain West Tournament tips-off on March 8. Williams was averaging 17.8 points and 7.0 rebounds per game.

New Mexico needs to win the Mountain West Conference tourney to make the field of 68 and Williams will provide a much-needed boost. The Lobos went 3-4 without Williams and are ranked 121 out of 351 teams based on nERD.
