The following is a medical update on Utah Jazz forward Marvin Williams, who suffered a fractured nose during the first half of the Jazz’s November 15 game vs. San Antonio and has played in each of the two subsequent Jazz games:

Williams did not accompany the team Tuesday to New Orleans, remaining in Salt Lake City to be fitted for a customized protective face mask. Following a medical consultation, it was determined that Williams will undergo a procedure to reduce the nasal fracture on Thursday in Salt Lake City. The outpatient procedure will be performed by Dr. Demetrios Skedros.

Williams will miss the Jazz’s game Wednesday at New Orleans, but is expected to re-join the team and be available for Friday’s game at Dallas.
