Marvin Williams hit 8-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points and four rebounds in Monday's loss.
The problem is that he didn't do anything else, literally. Williams has actually been playing well again lately, but had just eight points and two rebounds on 2-of-6 shooting on Friday. Prior to that he had scored in double figures in three straight games and has been contributing in points, rebounds, threes, and nothing else. He's averaging 15 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.2 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five games, so if that is something that will help your team, now looks like a nice time to pick him up.

Marvin Williams hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, eight rebounds and a steal in Tuesday's 121-114 loss to the Rockets.

Williams would certainly be worth owning if he did this every night, but he doesn't. He's averaging 12.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers on 43 percent shooting over his last five games, making him a low-end fantasy forward option, as usual.

Marvin Williams hit 6-of-11 shots for 19 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in Thursday night’s loss to the Pistons.

Williams who has been struggling on offense this season, tied high season high in points tonight. If Nicolas Batum (knee) misses time, Williams could see a bump in usage and potentially be the second scoring option for the Hornets. However, if Batum is healthy, Williams is a low-end fantasy option and a borderline fantasy starter.

Marvin Williams struggled from the field during Wednesday's home win, shooting 3-of-9 for eight points.

Williams added eight boards, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes, but over the past three games he's a combined 10-of-30 from the field. That aligns with his career-worst 38.8 percent shooting this year, and owners frustrated by the prolonged slump shouldn't cling to him over a hot free agent.
Jan 4 - 10:01 PM

Marvin Williams scored 13 points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

Slowly but surely, Williams seems to be getting it together on the offensive end. Over his last five, he's averaged 10.8 points per game with 1.2 treys on 47.7 percent from the field. Considering how effective he was last year and you have something to cut, it's probably time to pick him up.

Marvin Williams hit 6-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, five rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

He's been pretty awful this season, but has hit double figures in scoring in three straight and four of his last five games, averaging 12.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 3-pointers on 55 percent shooting over that stretch. We still don't trust him, but he's shooting it much better these days and at least looks like he remembers how to play basketball again.

Marvin Williams matched his season-high 19 points against the Hawks on Saturday, adding six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Revenge game? He has been terrible all season, making just 35.8 percent from the field in his previous games this season. Marvin is starting to turn the corner over his last five, averaging 11.8 points, 4.6 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.8 treys. He's worth a pickup right now.

Marvin Williams was quiet on Wednesday, making 2-of-6 shots to finish with four points, four boards, one assist and zero defensive stats in 26 minutes.

The Hornets lost their third straight game, all on the road, and Williams' owners have to be disappointed with his play this season. He's shooting just 35.3 percent from the field, easily a career-low, and he doesn't do enough in other categories to make up the difference. If you want to cut him for a more reliable free agent, we won't argue the decision.

Marvin Williams made 1-of-5 from the field for five points with six rebounds and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

Coach Steve Clifford said Wednesday he was pleased with how Williams maintained conditioning while injured, but it hasn't translated on the stat sheet yet. Williams is too important for the defense, so his minutes should still be there. Although, his fantasy value has been down after a career year in 2015-16. He's a questionable player to own.

Marvin Williams returned from a knee injury on Wednesday, playing 26 minutes to finish with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting, five boards, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Williams was on a minute-limit tonight, a restriction which should be eased over the Hornets next few games -- they conclude the week with games on Friday (vs. the Magic) and Saturday (at the Cavs). It's been a rough season for Marvin shooting the ball, at just 33.6 percent from the field, but he has enough upside to warrant a pickup in most leagues.

Marvin Williams (knee) will play short stints in his start against the Pistons on Wednesday.

After missing the last six, the Hornets will take it easy on their starting power forward. There are a couple ways they could approach this, but it's likely to get Williams in the 20-25 minute range tonight. Frank Kaminsky will take a hit while Spencer Hawes likely gets kicked out of the rotation.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 05:25:00 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) is expected to start against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He went through a 2-on-2 on Tuesday and everything went well, according to Williams after the session. "I feel like it went really well," Williams said. "If I wake up and feel good, I do expect to play." After missing the last six games due to a bone bruise, he should be back. Even though he's been bad this year, he's worth a pickup.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 12:44:00 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) said that he feels "totally ready to do" what he does, and barring a setback, he will play Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

"I don’t know about my normal 25 to 30 minutes, but I feel totally ready to do what I do," Williams said. "I can run and jump. My lungs might actually be the hardest thing to get back." He'll probably be closer to the 25-minute mark as his conditioning likely isn't where it needs to be after spending 10 days on the sidelines, so he's not necessarily a must-start option with 10 games being played tonight. He's also been in a bad shooting slump this season, limiting his standard league appeal.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 09:25:00 AM

Marvin Williams (knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Wednesday has been the target date all along, so things are trending in a positive direction here, although we likely won't get official confirmation on his status until we're closer to game-time. With Williams back in action, Frank Kaminsky will return to the bench and Spencer Hawes could fall out of the rotation entirely. Williams has been awful this year, connecting on just 33.6 percent of his shots, so he's a more attractive pickup in points leagues.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 03:38:00 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) will be out until at least Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

That means he's out Monday against the Mavs. Williams could still miss additional time beyond Wednesday due to the bone bruise in his knee. The Hornets would sure like to see Frank Kaminsky get out of his brutal slump, but he's still worth a look in fantasy.
