CHICAGO -- Atlanta Hawks forward Marvin Williams missed Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls because of a death in his family.

Coach Larry Drew says he's not sure if it was an immediate family member or not. He was not sure, either, when Williams would rejoin the team and would not say where he traveled to. Williams is averaging 9.6 points.

Veteran swingman Willie Green, averaging 7.4 points, started in his place.
