Jalen Williams won’t be playing in Sunday’s matchup against Portland due to a hip injury, as per the teams’ injury report.

This absence follows his noteworthy 41-minute performance in Saturday’s overtime victory against Golden State.

Having logged his first absence of the season, Williams, who is grappling with a hip strain, leaves room for Isaiah Joe, Davis Bertans, and perhaps Cason Wallace to assume more significant roles in the upcoming game.

With Williams sidelined for tonight, his next prospect to step onto the court arises on Wednesday night in a matchup against the Chicago Bulls.
