Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Fred VanVleet have been named the three finalists for the 2017-18 Sixth Man of the Year award.
Williams won the award in 2015 and he's the overwhelming favorite to take it home again this season, having averaged a career-high 22.6 points per game with 2.4 triples, 5.3 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals. His 6.2 free-throw makes per game were 11th-most in the league, far higher than any other reserve, which helped propel him to top-80 roto value. May 16 - 8:38 PM

Lou Williams (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Lakers.

Over the weekend, coach Doc Rivers said that Williams was playing through an ankle injury, so he won't be playing in the final two games now. He has Sixth Man of the Year locked up and turned out to be one of the best assets in fantasy this season. With him out, Tyrone Wallace should get some heavy run, but C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell are slightly risky with Austin Rivers likely playing.
Apr 11 - 2:16 PM

Lou Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

Williams was playing through an ankle injury last week, but after the Clippers were eliminated from postseason contention, Williams did not suit up on Monday. It's safe to assume the Clippers will also hold him out of Wednesday's contest, as it has no playoff implications for either team. If so, C.J. Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Tyrone Wallace will again log extended minutes.
Apr 10 - 7:25 PM

Lou Williams (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

No surprise here, as Williams was previously listed as doubtful and coach Doc Rivers wasn't expecting him to play. At this point, we'd expect Williams to miss the season finale on Wednesday vs. the Lakers as well. With Austin Rivers (elbow) also out, C.J. Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Tyrone Wallace will all be asked to play heavy minutes.
Apr 9 - 1:50 PM

Lou Williams (ankle) is officially listed as doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

You could see this coming from a mile away with the No. 8 seed out of reach. Coach Doc Rivers already said he wasn't expecting Williams to play, and the Clippers may be without Austin Rivers (elbow, questionable) as well. That means we'll see more of C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell, but Tyrone Wallace is the player fantasy owners will want to target.

Lou Williams (ankle) likely won't play on Monday against the Pelicans.

He was playing through an ankle injury from Thursday, so the Clippers will hold him out. That should put Tyrone Wallace in a big spot while C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell will get more run, too. Coach Doc Rivers said he likely won't rest other players to close out the year to protect the integrity of the game. Can the Grizzlies or Suns borrow him for their games?
Apr 7 - 6:42 PM

Lou Williams made 6-of-15 from the field for 24 points with five assists and two 3-pointers during a loss to the Nuggets on Saturday.

He had a rough start with his 3-of-11 shooting line to begin this game, but Williams got hot to make it closer in the start of the fourth quarter. With the Clippers now out, Williams could be looking at a game off after his Sixth Man of the Year season.
Apr 7 - 6:01 PM

Lou Williams made 3-of-12 from the field for 12 points with one rebound, three assists and four turnovers during a 117-95 loss to the Jazz on Thursday.

That's probably all she wrote for the Clippers and their playoff chances. Williams could be rested if the Clippers are officially out, especially with how much he's been used this season. To be clear, they're not officially out and they'll have at least one more chance with some hope. Lou Will has Sixth Man of the Year locked up.
Apr 6 - 12:02 AM

Lou Williams came through in the clutch for the Clippers, scoring 22 points on 8-of-20 shooting to go with two rebounds, one triple, three assists, two steals and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Williams struggled to get his shot to drop through much of the game, going 2-of-12 through the first three-quarters of play, but of course, he went human torch mode during the fourth racking up 15 of his 22 points on 6-of-8 shooting while rocking a 32.2 usage rate. In other words, he came through huge in the clutch, which is just par for the course for Sweet Lou.
Apr 4 - 2:24 AM

Lou Williams hit just 5-of-16 shots for 16 points in Tuesday's win over the Bucks.

Williams also turned the ball over seven times for the second time this season, adding five rebounds with four assists, one steal and one triple in 37 minutes. It's hard to complain about a player who has shattered his ADP with early-round value on the season and who averaged 26.5 points in his previous two games, so we're not going to. Expect a better performance on Wednesday vs. the Suns in what is shaping up to be a dream matchup. He'll also have to handle the ball even more if Milos Teodosic (foot) misses time.
Mar 28 - 1:34 AM

Lou Williams ended up posting a game-high 26 points in 35 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 117-106 road victory against the Raptors.

Williams started the game just 1-of-8 from the field, but he ended up finishing strong with 9-of-16. It's nice that he doesn't let his struggles linger and he has no conscience. Williams was also 1-of-4 from behind the arc while going 5-of-5 from the charity stripe while adding seven assists with two rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot. He continues to be locked into major role off the bench as the Clips scratch and claw for a final postseason spot in the Western Conference.
Mar 25 - 8:54 PM

Lou Williams scored 27 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

Not that anyone should have been worried about a move to the bench, but the future 2017-18 Sixth Man of the Year is fine there. He leads the NBA in fourth-quarter scoring and almost brought his team back if not for a very late Pacers run. He's locked in for a huge offensive role as the Clippers battle for the postseason.
Mar 23 - 9:30 PM

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.
