Justin Williams update; TV schedule announced.

Justin Williams told reporters Tuesday in El Segundo that he will “probably” decide by tomorrow on his status for Thursday’s Game 1 in San Jose. Williams took part in a full practice for the second straight day.

“Overall, it felt better than yesterday,” Williams said. “I hope tomorrow feels better. That’s all I can say, really.”

Williams hasn’t played since suffering a separated right shoulder on March 21, three weeks and a day ago. The original timetable for his recovery was a four-week minimum.

Murray said that Williams would go into a top-six forward role right away. They could use him; in nine games since Williams’ injury, the Kings have averaged exactly 2 goals a game.

Also Tuesday, the Kings announced their TV schedule for the series:
