Lou Williams scored a game-high 30 points in a losing effort on Sunday, making 11-of-24 field goals and 5-of-5 free throws in 31 minutes of action.
Williams sank three 3-pointers with four assists, one rebound and one steal. He also committed just one turnover in 31 minutes tonight, which is a relief for 9-cat owners -- he coughed up five turnovers in two of the Clippers' previous three games. With four games on the schedule each of the next two weeks, Sweet Lou is going to be a major factor in fantasy playoffs. Mar 19 - 1:25 AM

Lou Williams will come off the bench vs. Portland on Sunday.

Milos Teodosic, Sindarius Thornwell and Austin Rivers will start tonight's game, but Williams' owners have no reason to fret -- he's been as dominant a sixth-man as you'll find in the NBA this season.
Mar 18 - 10:28 PM

Lou Williams scored 26 points with three rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Bulls on Tuesday.

Coach Doc Rivers has said he doesn't expect this starting lineup to stick for too long, but it's working with wins in each of those three games. Williams' fantasy doesn't really change because he closes games and he gets his no matter what coach Doc Rivers has lined up for him.
Mar 13 - 10:48 PM

Lou Williams posted a game-high 25 points across 35 minutes in Saturday's 113-105 victory against the visiting Magic.

Williams hit 10-of-22 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two rebounds and a steal. He saved his best for last, as he dumped in 10 points in the fourth quarter. Williams leads the NBA in fourth-quarter scoring. Regardless of his role in the lineup, Williams continues to be a major asset to fantasy players.
Mar 11 - 1:28 AM

Sindarius Thornwell, Tobias Harris, DeAndre Jordan, Lou Williams and Austin Rivers will start on Friday against the Cavs.

Interesting move here with Williams, but he'll get huge minutes regardless of his role in the lineup. Wes Johnson and Milos Teodosic moved to the bench.
Mar 9 - 10:15 PM

Lou Williams scored 27 points with 11 assists, three rebounds, two triples and five turnovers in 34 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday,

It was another monster night for Williams who finished 9-of-20 from the field and a surprising 7-of-13 from the line including a couple missed free throws in the final seconds. "It's nice to have a go-to guy," coach Doc Rivers said of Lou after the game. "Every team in the league wants one. We'll live with his makes and we'll live with his misses because at the end of he day, he makes more than he misses." The Clippers play four games in each of the next three weeks, so his fantasy owners should be in great shape.
Mar 7 - 1:39 AM

Lou Williams posted 21 points across 29 minutes off the bench in Friday's 128-105 win against the visiting Knicks.

Williams hit 6-of-16 from the field, but he was 0-of-6 from downtown. He made up for it from the free-throw line, going 9-of-10 while adding eight assists, three rebounds and no turnovers while turning in a plus-6 rating. He has hit for 20 or more points in 14 of the past 17 games. Williams continues to roll up top-30 value in standard 9-category fantasy leagues.
Mar 3 - 2:18 AM

Lou Williams scored 25 points vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday, finishing 10-of-18 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line.

He played a team-high 36 minutes, adding six assists, five rebounds, two steals, one block and one triple. Williams has crushed his ADP with top-30 value in standard 9-category leagues on the season and the Clippers have a great fantasy playoff schedule (3-4-4-4 over next four weeks), so his owners should be in great shape.
Feb 28 - 1:25 AM

Lou Williams scored 35 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in a 128-117 win over the Suns on Friday.

He's a lock for Sixth Man of the Year at this point and he should probably be unanimous. The Clippers are just 1.0 games behind the Pelicans for the No. 8 spot, but both teams do have a really tough schedule coming up. Either way, it's looking like Williams won't get much rest as he looks to put a bow on one of the best sixth-man seasons in recent memory.
Feb 24 - 12:49 AM

Lou Williams posted a 21-point, 12-assist double-double during Thursday's loss to the Warriors, adding two 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Williams struggled to get his shot to drop for much of the game, but he got hot during crunch time, hitting a plethora of ridiculous shots for the Clippers to keep the game close. This was also Sweet Lou's fourth 10+ assist game of the season, which is a feat he had accomplished just once through his first 12 years in the league.
Feb 23 - 2:18 AM

Lou Williams hit 8-of-16 shots for 20 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 30 minutes of Monday's win over the Nets.

He didn't hit a 3-pointer after hitting four in each of his previous two games, but the minutes are there, he's happy in L.A. and he should continue to be a big part of what they do going forward. Make sure he's not available in your league.
Feb 12 - 10:52 PM

Fresh off a new contract extension, Lou Williams dropped 26 points on 7-of-12 shots in Friday's 108-95 win over the Pistons.

Williams also hit 8-of-9 free throws, adding six assists, four rebounds, two steals, four triples and four turnovers in 31 minutes. Williams just recently signed a three-year extension worth $24 million that includes a team option for a third season, an absolute bargain for a player that could've easily been selected to the All-Star game. "It was nice for the organization to commit to me the same way I've committed to these guys this year," Williams said. He has top-20 value in 9-category leagues for the past month and could hold early-round value the rest of the way unless the Clippers start to slide in the standings. His fantasy owners should be thrilled he wasn't traded.

Feb 9 - 10:04 PM

Lou Williams has reportedly agreed to a three-year extension with the Clippers.

This move would support the narrative that the Clippers were "retooling" and not "rebuilding" with the Blake Griffin trade, so at this point, it seems somewhat less likely that DeAndre Jordan will be dealt at the deadline. This also will ramp up Boston and Denver's efforts to swing a deal for Tyreke Evans, as both Evans and Williams were on their radar. With Sweet Lou locked up in Los Angeles, he should easily finish the season as a top-30 guy.
Feb 7 - 1:17 PM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN, extension talks between Lou Williams and the Clippers "have gathered significant momentum."

His fantasy owners should be thrilled if Williams agrees to an extension, as a move to a contender could've really hurt his value. The report adds that rival teams have accepted the fact that Williams is no longer on the market, and it looks like Williams is close to signing a multi-year extension to stay in Los Angeles. He's enjoying the best season of his career, averaging 23.3 points, 5.3 assists, 2.5 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 2.8 triples, returning top-30 value in standard leagues.

Feb 7 - 2:22 AM

Lou Williams scored 21 points with one rebound, six assists and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He will always get his shots on the Clippers, but the question is where he will get shots after Feb. 8. Williams appears to be one of the top trade targets and he will almost certainly be taking a massive hit to his fantasy value.
