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.

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.
Jan 26 - 11:24 AM

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.
