Lou Williams scored 23 points in the starting lineup on Friday vs. the Wizards, hitting 5-of-14 shots and 10-of-10 free throws.
Austin Rivers (concussion), Milos Teodosic (rest) and Danilo Gallinari (glute) were all out tonight, so Williams predictably stepped up once again. He added five rebounds with four assists, one steal and three triples, and he's now played 33 or more minutes in 11 straight games. He'll be a popular name at the trade deadline with his cap-friendly (and expiring) contract, but Williams could be a top-50 player as long as he's in a Clipper uniform. Dec 15 - 10:47 PM

Date:

C.J. Williams and Lou Williams will start against the Wizards on Friday.

Lou was always going to get his minutes in the 30s, but starting could mean he's headed for 36-39 minutes tonight. Simply put, he has a huge chance to explode tonight and is a strong guy to build around for DFS. He has a good chance to be a top-50 player the rest of the way, too.
Dec 15 - 6:07 PM

Lou Williams poured in 31 points off the bench Wednesday, sinking 11-of-22 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs with eight assists, three rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal.

Sweet Lou's previous career-high vs. the Magic was 24 points, but he soared past that mark as the Clippers' go-to scorer tonight. Austin Rivers (concussion) exited this game early and has already been ruled out for Friday's game, so Williams will be even busier than usual vs. the Wizards. At age 31, in his 13th NBA season, Williams is putting up a career-high 19.6 points per game.
Dec 13 - 11:06 PM

Lou Williams scored 35 points during a 113-112 win over the Wizards on Saturday, adding two rebounds, eight assists and four 3-pointers.

He hit a 29-foot triple with one second left to help the Clippers snap their four-game losing streak. Williams has been an absolute workhorse with minutes in the upper 30s in seven of his last eight with the exception being 33 in a blowout loss. With Milos Teodosic (foot) set to come back, Williams probably will be closer to 32 minutes per game, but obviously you're starting him in all formats. He's been a fantasy steal this year and Milos coming back shouldn't hurt him too much.
Dec 9 - 8:07 PM

Lou Williams scored 23 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes off the bench against the Wolves on Wednesday.

With Danilo Gallinari returning, the Clippers are finally starting to get some guys back, and Williams is probably going to stick in the second unit once Milos Teodosic (foot) comes back. While Williams may not hit upper 30s in minutes, he should still be very busy at around 30 minutes per game as one of the highest usage-rate guys off the bench in the NBA. His owners should still expect him to flirt with top-50 value in standard leagues.
Dec 7 - 1:29 AM

Lou Williams notched his first double-double of the season on Sunday with 23 points, 10 assists, five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Sweet Lou shifted to the bench tonight, but he led the Clippers in scoring and continues to play huge minutes -- he's logged at least 33 minutes in six straight games. L.A.'s injury woes have turned him into a go-to player, and he's sitting pretty with top-40 value over the past two weeks.
Dec 3 - 10:39 PM

Lou Williams will reportedly come off L.A.'s bench on Sunday.

Williams should be plenty busy vs. the Rockets even in a sixth-man role, so there's no cause for alarm. The Clippers will be rolling out a lineup of Austin Rivers, , C.J. Williams, Wes Johnson, Jamil Wilson and DeAndre Jordan.
Dec 3 - 6:46 PM

Lou Williams scored 20 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

Austin Rivers mentioned that he and Williams talked about how they have to take more shots now, so expect to see Williams score 20 frequently. Simply put, he's a must-start player right now.
Dec 1 - 1:08 AM

Lou Williams hit 12-of-21 shots, 4-of-8 3-pointers and 14-of-14 free throws for a season-high 42 points to go along with four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 38 minutes in Monday's win over the Lakers. .

Williams was a Big Baller tonight and took it out on his former team. His career high is 44 points, and he just missed it, but he couldn't have played much better than he did tonight. He's quietly having a great season, as he's scored 20 or more in three of his last five games, and is sitting at 22.6 points, 5.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.0 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five. He should be owned everywhere.
Nov 28 - 1:53 AM

Lou Williams netted 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting during Saturday's comeback win over Sacramento, to go with eight assists, four 3-pointers, four steals and one block in 36 minutes.

Unfortunately, Williams also committed six turnovers in this one, and that could be a bit of an issue as he's forced into more of a playmaking role in Los Angeles with both Patrick Beverley (knee) and Milos Teodosic (foot) on the sidelines. That said, if you throw out the turnover category Williams has been producing top-30 value since Beverley hit the sidelines, although he could take a slight hit once Teodosic and Danilo Gallinari (glute) get back, so Sweet Lou owners should think about selling high.
Nov 26 - 12:30 AM

Lou Williams will start on Saturday against the Kings.

Coach Doc Rivers hinted he could tweak his starters, but that probably won't happen if the Clippers can get another win today. Regardless, you're starting Williams in all leagues.
Nov 25 - 10:07 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Lou Williams will "probably" start again for Saturday against the Kings.

Rivers did hint he could be "moving it around" with his starting five, so he may be playing some matchups. Rivers also said he really wants his second unit to play well together, so that may also help keep Lou in the first unit. Regardless, Williams is a must-start player in all leagues right now and is a nice DFS play against the Kings.

Lou Williams made his first start of the season for 20 points with one rebound, eight assists, one steal, six turnovers and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

He and DeAndre Jordan have shown a good rapport together and maybe that's why Williams moved into the starting lineup. Even if coach Doc Rivers does play the matchups with Lou as a starter, he's now looking at minutes in the low 30s and he should be asked to score the ball a bunch on a team that lacks perimeter scoring. The move to the starting lineup could also help his dimes with a season high tonight. His fantasy owners can expect him to flirt with top-50 value now that Patrick Beverley (knee) is out for the season.
Nov 22 - 10:43 PM

Lou Williams started and Sindarius Thornwell moved to the bench against the Hawks on Wednesday.

When you're on an NBA-high nine-game losing streak, it's time for some changes. Williams was always going to get his minutes regardless, so this move doesn't affect him much. It'll be interesting to see how Thornwell fits in, but he has used his shots well since Pat Beverley (knee) went down.
Nov 22 - 7:42 PM

Lou Williams finished with 25 points across 29 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 102-87 loss at Charlotte.

Williams chipped in with four assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers while hitting 10-of-17 from the field. He was the only player to show up for the skidding Clippers who have now dropped eight in a row. Williams continues to do the heavy lifting off the bench, and he remains a solid option for his scoring in most fantasy formats.
