Williams, whose thumb underwent an MRI exam, suffered the injury in a loss Saturday at Miami and will be further evaluated on Monday.

Jamaal Tinsley will take the started backcourt spot in place of the 30-year-old guard, who has averaged 12.9 points and 6.7 assists over 24 games so far this season.

The Jazz began the season 14-14, last in the Northwest division.

Williams, in his 10th NBA season, has career averages of 13.8 points and 4.9 assists a game over 613 games with the Jazz, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers.
