Marvin Williams was held to four points on 1-of-7 shooting vs. the 76ers on Monday.
Yikes. Williams logged 33 minutes and missed all five attempts from beyond the arc, adding two assists with one steal and zero rebounds. The 76ers are actually a top-5 team in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing power forwards, but expect a much better effort on Wednesday vs. the Raptors. He's a hold in standard leagues with averages of 13.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.4 3-pointers in his previous five games. Feb 13 - 9:53 PM

Marvin Williams scored 16 points with 14 rebounds on Saturday vs. the Jazz.

This was his third double-double of the season. Williams shot 5-of-10 from the field against his former team, adding one assist, three steals, one block and three triples in 38 minutes. He's now played 30+ minutes in six straight games, returning top-60 value in standard leagues in that span.
Feb 5 - 1:25 AM

Marvin Williams scored 14 points with two rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and five fouls against the Kings on Saturday.

He did a fine job on DeMarcus Cousins on defense in the early going with the Charlotte centers guarding the other bigs next to Boogie most of the time. Coach Steve Clifford has always talked about Williams' impact on the defensive end, so that will keep him on the floor through his slumps -- a lot like Robert Covington in Philly. Marvin has fifth-round value in his last 10 games and looks like a strong asset in standard leagues again.
Jan 28 - 9:33 PM

Marvin Williams scored 17 points and hit five 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Knicks.

He tied his season and career high with the five triples and finished 6-of-14 from the field in 31 minutes with three boards and a steal. Williams has been all over the place this season, but like you saw tonight, he's worth owning for his 3-pointers alone.
Jan 27 - 10:30 PM

Marvin Williams played through a sore toe on Monday and finished with 13 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer on 5-of-12 shooting in 29 minutes.

Maybe he should ding up his toe more often, as this was one of his best games in recent memory. Williams went to the locker room with the injury, but was able to come back quickly and continue the game. Just keep an eye out for news on Tuesday if you own him, but we're guessing he's fine.
Jan 23 - 9:40 PM

Marvin Williams (right big toe contusion) has returned on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He briefly left the game and went back to the locker room, but he returned to the bench moments later and quickly checked back into the game. We'll have an update after the game, but this sounds very minor. Frank Kaminsky will benefit if this issue lingers.
Jan 23 - 7:44 PM

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.
Jan 16 - 10:10 PM

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.
Jan 10 - 10:43 PM

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.
Jan 5 - 11:28 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 11:27:00 PM

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.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 10:05:00 PM

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.
