Marvin Williams (concussion) is likely going to be cleared for Saturday to face the Nuggets.

He has been out since Saturday due to a concussion and a broken nose. Williams may also have a mask due to a broken nose, which isn't a new thing for him. With Williams back, Cody Zeller is a little less appealing.
Jan 30 - 3:02 PM

Marvin Williams (concussion/ broken nose) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

It's still unknown if he has passed the NBA's concussion protocol, but we still don't think Williams ends up playing in this one. If he does end up missing any time, Coach Steve Clifford hinted that rookie Noah Vonleh would get some run, but only owners in deeper leagues should concern themselves over this situation.

Marvin Williams, who is already dealing with a concussion, has also been diagnosed with a broken nose.

Williams will not be able to return until he's able to pass the NBA's concussion protocol, and there is nothing to suggest a return is imminent. Already down Bismack Biyombo (knee), Cody Zeller, who has logged 30-plus minutes in two of his last three games, appears poised to see an even larger role.

Marvin Williams has been diagnosed with a concussion.

It's been a bloodbath with the injuries today and Williams is going to have to go through the concussion protocol. The good news for the Hornets is that they're off until Wednesday, so Williams may not miss any time. Although, he was awfully groggy on Saturday. Cody Zeller will play a few more minutes.
Jan 24 - 10:38 PM

Marvin Williams is being a evaluated for a concussion due to an injury in the first half against the Knicks on Saturday.

He was walking back very slow and he will likely have to go through the concussion protocol. With Williams out, the Hornets are going to have to get creative for their forward spots. Cody Zeller will play more while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist may play some four. Noah Vonleh and Jason Maxiell may get in the rotation if there are other injuries to Bismack Biyombo and Lance Stephenson.
Jan 24 - 8:29 PM

Marvin Williams went to the locker room with an apparent leg injury on Saturday.

It did not look good and he headed back to the locker room with a limp. Williams was walking slowly and there's a chance he's done for the night, especially considering how many leg injuries he's had in his career. Cody Zeller will get more run while Jason Maxiel and Noah Vonleh could help out.
Jan 24 - 8:08 PM

Marvin Williams scored six points with five rebounds, two assists, four steals, and one block in 22 minutes against the Knicks.

Thanks to the Knicks looking like the Knicks, Williams was able to pick up some nice defensive stats. He's not going to be this effective off the bench with this line being a bit of an anomaly, so he can left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 3:43 PM

Marvin Williams played a season-high 38 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday with 13 points, nine rebounds, three assists and three 3-poitners.

He saw a nice uptick thanks to Cody Zeller (shoulder) not playing tonight. Williams also played closer to the basket on a handful of possessions, which is slightly out of his element. Zeller shouldn't be out for long, so Williams isn't a great add.
Jan 8 - 10:28 PM

Marvin Williams will start against the Raptors on Thursday.

His season high is 36 minutes and that's probably where he'll be tonight. The Raptors will likely attack him with Amir Johnson, so foul trouble could certainly be a factor. Williams' has a paltry 12.6 usage rate on the season, so his ceiling isn't going to be too high. Although, he's a fine punt play in daily leagues with all those minutes.
Jan 8 - 7:09 PM

Marvin Williams played 29 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Friday with 10 points, six boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He could not finish Wednesday's game after receiving three stitches to his head. Williams should flirt with around 30 minutes for the Hornets while Al Jefferson (groin) is out, but he's not going to light it up in the scoring column. He's more of a low-end guy in 14-team leagues.
Jan 2 - 10:43 PM

Marvin Williams (head) required three stitches after a collision with Joey Dorsey during Thursday's loss to the Rockets.

Williams missed most of the fourth quarter due to a gash on his head and didn't finish treatment until after the game ended. It sounds like he'll be available for Friday's game against the Cavaliers, but Cody Zeller would see a boost in his minutes if Williams is unable to play.
Jan 1 - 1:42 PM

Marvin Williams went to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game with a bleeding head.

He had a collision with Joey Dorsey and we're guessing he's getting stitched up. With most of the fourth quarter left to play, Marvin could return to the game, but he's been disappointing tonight. If he's done, he'll finish with just three points and two rebounds in 16 minutes.

Marvin Williams played 36 minutes against the Bucks on Monday with eight points, 14 boards, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

Al Jefferson (groin) is likely going to miss time, so Marvin has a great chance to see minutes in the mid-30s. Williams still has only been attempting 5.9 shots per game this month and this rebounding game is a huge fluke, so he's still not a terrific grab unless you need treys from the power forward spot.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 10:34:00 PM

Marvin Williams returned from his shoulder injury on Wednesday and had six points and three rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench.

He didn't really have value when starting, and if he's coming off the bench permanently now, it's going to get even worse. If you somehow own Williams and can drop him for Cody Zeller, do it.
