The injury occurred during a workout, IU said.
If it is a few weeks, it means Williams likely will not be playing in Hoosier Hysteria, which is Oct. 4.
Williams is the second-highest ranked player among the Indiana freshman. The 6-foot-7 forward was ranked 47th in the 2013 Rivals150.
"Troy has been rising in all areas of his game," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. "While this is a setback, it is a minor one in the scheme of things."
Williams was the leading scorer (16.2 points) for storied Oak Hill Academy as a senior as Oak Hill went 34-5. He also averaged 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 blocks as a senior, compiling nine double-doubles.
Williams has been progressing well throughout summer workouts.
Williams was named MVP of the Derby Festival Classic and also played in the Jordan Brand Classic.
