Marvin Williams played 36 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday with 17 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
His 14 shots from the field are the most he's had all season, so it's abundantly clear the injuries to the forward spots will be resulting in some extra shots from Marvin. He's already hitting two treys per game this month, so if he starts to hit shots on a consistent basis Marvin could be a must-start guy. Give him a look in all standard leagues with his four-game week. Mar 28 - 9:44 PM

Marvin Williams hit 2-of-7 shots (including a three) for five points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 44 minutes in Friday's double-overtime loss to the Wizards.

Williams was already looking pretty setup with Cody Zeller still dealing with a shoulder injury, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist left tonight's game and did not return after an ankle injury. The Hornets have a favorable schedule remaining and all of this adds up to being rostered in 12-team leagues.
Mar 27 - 11:28 PM

Marvin Williams played 37 minutes during Sunday's road win, scoring eight points with eight rebounds and two assists.

He shot 3-of-11 from the field with one of his makes coming beyond the arc, and he didn't turn the ball over despite his heavy playing time. The bad news is that Cody Zeller (shoulder) remains day-to-day, so Williams' starting job (and fantasy relevance) could vanish as soon as Monday's road game in Chicago.
Mar 22 - 9:37 PM

Marvin Williams played a game-high 37 minutes against the Bulls during a 101-91 win on Friday, scoring 12 points with seven rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers.

With the Hornets needing to use their bench to fill the minutes at center, Williams had a big opportunity to play at power forward. Cody Zeller (shoulder) and Al Jefferson (calf) could miss multiple games, so Marvin has a decent chance to get minutes in the upper 30s. If you want some treys at the PF spot, give him a look. It helps he has a great schedule, too.
Mar 13 - 10:44 PM

Marvin Williams had 13 points, seven rebounds, three blocks and three 3-pointers on 4-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Kings.

With Al Jefferson leaving with a potentially serious calf injury and Cody Zeller already out with a shoulder injury, Marvin could start doing some real damage. Give him a look if you have someone you want to cut.
Mar 11 - 10:27 PM

Marvin Williams is starting against the Kings on Wednesday, as expected.

Cody Zeller (shoulder) suffered his second right shoulder injury this season and could miss time. Williams hasn't been great when handed extended playing time, so he's not a great fantasy option in standard leagues.
Mar 11 - 7:09 PM

Marvin Williams started the second half against the Wizards on Monday, finishing with six points, five boards and two 3-pointers.

The Hornets may have lost Cody Zeller (shoulder) for a bit, which means Williams will take over as the starter. Still, he is very inconsistent when he gets playing time and most fantasy owners can keep him on the wire. Bismack Biyombo may also get a few more minutes should Zeller miss time.
Mar 9 - 9:47 PM

Marvin Williams started over Cody Zeller on Wednesday and had 18 points, seven rebounds, a block and four 3-pointers in an easy win over the Nets.

The move was reportedly made for "matchup purposes" against the small Nets, but Williams played very well, hitting 5-of-8 shots. Zeller played just 16 minutes for 13 points and four rebounds, and regardless of the match ups going forward, it wouldn't be surprising to see Williams stick in the power forward spot.
Mar 4 - 11:24 PM

Marvin Williams will start at power forward with Cody Zeller coming off the bench against the Nets on Wednesday.

It's a matchup-based move against a smaller Brooklyn lineup. Williams and Zeller will likely play a similar amount of minutes tonight, so there's no need to adjust projections or fantasy value. In his previous 17 starts, Williams averaged 6.7 points, 3.4 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.3 treys, which obviously isn't great. Plus, the Hornets might switch back to Zeller starting over the weekend.
Mar 4 - 6:29 PM

Marvin Williams will wear a protective mask after having surgery on his nose during the All-Star break.

Williams isn't expected to miss any action, and the surgery was performed to simply reset a cracked nose bone. However, with season averages of just 6.6 points, 4.6 boards and 1.1 3-pointers per game, his value is limited to deeper leagues.
Feb 18 - 12:14 PM

Marvin Williams scored 13 points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

While Gary Neal did start in place of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) in the second half, Williams benefited. Williams was only playing 25 minutes per game before tonight, but he should see a little more run. Unless MKG is out for a while, Williams is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 7 - 10:41 PM

Marvin Williams (concussion) is cleared to play against the Wizards on Monday.

It's unknown how many minutes he'll get tonight and Cody Zeller should still see the lion's share. Williams is not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 2 - 6:57 PM

Marvin Williams has not yet been cleared for Monday's game, but it could happen before the tip.

We will be monitoring this one for the next hour. If Williams is out, that should bode well for Cody Zeller. Williams is not worth owning in most leagues even if he's healthy.
Feb 2 - 5:41 PM

Marvin Williams (concussion) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.

He was expected to be cleared in time for this contest, but now it's looking like he won't return until Monday against Washington. Cody Zeller is the primary beneficiary of this news, while rookie Noah Vonleh may make another appearance off the bench as well.
Jan 31 - 1:05 PM

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.
