He played a little more small forward tonight because the Hornets are so thin on the wing. Williams is not going to be involved enough in the offense to be used in most fantasy leagues. Nov 20 - 3:04 AM

Marvin Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

He played on both Friday and Saturday despite being listed as doubtful and questionable, respectively, so there's a good chance that he'll be in uniform. That doesn't mean he'll have fantasy value, however, as he's coming off a scoreless game and hasn't been consistent enough for use outside of very deep leagues.
Nov 18 - 9:26 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) started Saturday's game vs. the Warriors but went scoreless with three rebounds and one turnover in 15 minutes.

Williams missed all three of his field goals and he's been dreadful over the past five games, averaging 4.2 points on 38.1 percent shooting. He doesn't contribute enough in other categories to make up the difference, and doesn't warrant fantasy owners' attention outside of the deepest leagues.
Nov 17 - 12:27 AM

Marvin Williams (knee) will suit up for Saturday's game.

He was questionable leading up to the game so it's good to see him available to play in this one. However, Williams hasn't been a consistent option this season and should only be considered in deep leagues for owners in need of 3-pointers.
Nov 15 - 9:15 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He played through a doubtful tag on Friday, so it wouldn't be a big shock to see him sit tonight. Williams has been too inconsistent to be counted on even with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out.
Nov 15 - 6:59 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) played 23 minutes in Friday's win over the Suns, scoring five points on 2-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and one steal.

Williams had a single solid game to start the season but it has been all downhill from there. He's waiver wire fodder at this time.
Nov 15 - 2:53 AM

Marvin Williams (knee tendinitis) will start in Friday's game vs. the Suns.

Williams was listed as doubtful heading into this one, so this news is a bit surprising. Williams is averaging just 7.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.3 three-pointers on the year, so he doesn't really belong on a roster in standard leagues.
Nov 14 - 7:43 PM

Marvin Williams (knee tendinitis) was spotted doing some shooting and cutting during Friday's warmups.

Williams is listed as doubtful for tonight's game, but him going through warmups means that there's still a small chance he suits up. If he's unable to go, Cody Zeller would draw the start at power forward, but he doesn't offer much upside as a plug-and-play option. Stay tuned.
Nov 14 - 6:38 PM

Marvin Williams (left knee tendinitis) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. Phoenix.

Williams really hasn't done much this season, as he's currently averaging just 7.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.3 three-pointers per game, numbers not deserving of standard league consideration. If he is to sit out on Friday, Cody Zeller would likely draw the start and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could also pick up some additional minutes as the team's backup power forward. Zeller doesn't do much aside from rebound, and he averaged 9.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists as a starter last season.

Marvin Williams missed both of his field goal attempts in Tuesday's crushing loss in Portland, going scoreless with one rebound, three assists and one block in 21 minutes.

Williams continues to start at PF for the Hornets but fantasy owners have nothing to show for it. In other news, Williams' streak without a single free throw attempt has extended to an unbelievable 216 total minutes in eight games to begin the season.
Nov 12 - 1:04 AM

Marvin Williams made 3-of-5 shots from downtown to finish Sunday's road loss with 11 points, five rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes of action.

This was Williams' first double-digit scoring effort since opening night, and his lack of versatility rules him out as a standard-league fantasy option. Tellingly, the contact-averse PF has not attempted a single free throw in any of the Hornets' seven games to start the season, a total of 195 minutes on the court.
Nov 10 - 12:26 AM

Marvin Williams struggled against the Grizzlies on Saturday with three points, three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He committed five fouls in 25 minutes and just looked flat. The Hornets need a power forward in a big way and that was made extremely clear against a team like Memphis. In other words, Marvin is more of a matchup guy in most leagues, so he's not worth owning.
Nov 1 - 10:32 PM

Marvin Williams started at power forward and hit 8-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 19 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 33 minutes of an incredible come back, overtime win against the Bucks.

Charlotte was down 74-50 in the third quarter, but came back to win the game, marking the largest come back in team history. Marvin looked really good tonight, but he's fooled us before. He's probably available in your league and is worth a flier as long as he's starting for the Hornets, and healthy.
Oct 29 - 10:32 PM

Marvin Williams had a quiet finale against the Pacers on Thursday with two points, four rebounds, two assists and one block in 27 minutes.

He had a rough preseason shooting the ball this month, but did take plenty of triples. Williams will be the stretch four this year and could be a cheaper version of Channing Frye, so owners in deep leagues can keep an eye on him.
Oct 23 - 9:42 PM

Marvin Williams (right elbow contusion) will not suit up for Monday's preseason game vs. the Hawks.

This is the first we're hearing of an elbow injury, so for now we'll be listing him as day-to-day. Williams is the starting power forward for the Hornets, but he's really not going to offer much to a fantasy squad outside of 3-point shooting. There are better players with higher upside you can target in the later rounds of drafts, so Williams is more of a deep league play at best.
