Chicago Bulls: Jay Williams took his first major step to recovery by literally moving his left foot. His agent, Bill Duffy, says that proves his client will return to the NBA amidst speculation that the point guard's career was over after only one season following a motorcycle accident. "Our goal is that Jay will be back on the court in 2004-05 earning the money the Bulls are paying him," Duffy was quoted in the Chicago Sun-Times. More surgeries are planned for Williams, but despite the outcome, the Bulls have said they will honor his rookie contract even if he never plays again.
