SHEFFIELD Sharks have doubts about the fitness of shooting guard Micah Williams ahead of Saturday’s BBL Trophy final against Leicester Riders in Glasgow, writes Richard Fidler.

Williams was absent from the team’s media day at the English Institute of Sport on Thursday as he recovers from a foot injury.

The 25-year-old American joined the club in the summer and has performed well in his first season in Sheffield averaging 15 points-per-match.

The Sharks travel to Scotland on Friday as underdogs against a Leicester team that is top of the BBL Championship and won the BBL Cup earlier in the season.
