CHICAGO, June 20 (UPI) -- Chicago Bulls guard Jay Williams has been hospitalized in Chicago after being involved in a motorcycle accident.
Team spokesman Tim Hallam said Williams was injured Thursday afternoon and taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital. The team will not divulge the extent of his injuries, but ESPN reported that he suffered leg and pelvic bone injuries.
Hospital officials diverted calls to the team.
"Everyone in the Bulls organization, including (owner) Jerry Reinsdorf, the coaching staff, and Jay's teammates, are hurting for Jay and his family," said General Manager John Paxson in a statement. "The last thing on our minds right now is basketball, and the foremost thought on our minds is that of Jay's health."
Williams, 21, the second overall pick in last year's NBA draft, averaged 9.5 points and 4.7 assists per game. He had a rocky rookie season, sometimes clashing with Coach Bill Cartwright.
He played three seasons at Duke and helped the Blue Devils to the NCAA championship in 2001.
