TNT is set to welcome Williams, who returned to the country earlier this week following a stalemate in negotiations on the revisions of his contract.
With Williams now in the country, Reyes said Williams will be inserted in the TNT line-up.
“That’s our plan, for him to play on Thursday,” said TNT coach Chot Reyes.
“Alam ko, they are still talking on the renegotiation but he has a live contract,” Reyes said. “Meron siyang re-negotiation clause, that’s where we are at right now.”
TNT looks to close the gap on the leaders.
Williams’ arrival comes after TNT improved its record to 3-2 win-loss with a 78-71 win over Meralco on Saturday.
Rain or Shine eyes to break a three-game losing streak. The Elastopainters are in 11th place with a 1-3 record, ahead of winless Terrafirma (0-4).
In the first game, NorthPort and Meralco clash at 5:15 p.m. with both teams seeking to avoid another loss.
After a solid start that saw them win two straight games, the Batang Pier are on a two-game losing run after a 97-90 loss to Blackwater last Saturday.
The Bolts look for their third win in four games as they try to bounce back from the loss to TNT.
