OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ Charlie Ward was placed on the New York Knicks’ injured list on Friday with an abdominal strain.
The Knicks activated rookie point guard Frank Williams to replace Ward, hurt late in the second quarter of New York’s game at Seattle on Wednesday night.

Williams missed the previous 39 games with heel tendinitis. The Illinois product has played just six games this season.
