Marvin Williams posted 10 points across 23 minutes in Saturday's ugly 124-101 loss in New York.
Williams hit 2-of-8 from the field, and 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, doing most of his damage from the free-throw stripe with a 6-of-6 evening. He added seven rebounds and a steal with just one turnover, but it was a poor all-around night with a minus-16 rating. He and his teammates will be in action again Monday in Philadelphia to kick off a four-game work week. Mar 17 - 10:12 PM

Marvin Williams scored 17 points with three rebounds and three assists on Thursday, making 7-of-9 shots with a 3-of-5 mark from downtown.

The win gave Charlotte a season sweep vs. the Hawks, who were the perfect foil for a struggling team that lost six of its previous seven games. It wasn't all good for Williams' fantasy owners, as he went 0-of-3 at the line without any defensive stats, but it's a step in the right direction. He came in averaging 6.7 points on 33.3 percent shooting in March, and has been too unreliable for use in most leagues.
Mar 15 - 10:15 PM

Marvin Williams played through his migraine on Tuesday and hit 4-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, five rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes of a 128-114 loss to the Sixers.

He was iffy coming in, but was able to go. He also looked better than he has recently, as he scored a grand total of just eight points over his previous three games. He's not really worth owning and now that the Hornets have fallen 7.0 games out of the final playoff spot in the East, they could easily turn to Frank Kaminsky down the stretch.
Mar 6 - 10:28 PM

Marvin Williams (migraine headache) is listed as a starting Tuesday vs. the Sixers.

Coach Steve Clifford said that Williams will "attempt to play" Tuesday night. However, he questioned whether Williams would be able to play his normal allotment of minutes after spending the day dealing with a migraine. Frank Kaminsky may end up playing the lion's share of minutes at power forward on Tuesday.

Coach Steve Clifford said that Marvin Williams (migraine headache) will "attempt to play" Tuesday night vs. the Sixers.

Williams was unable to participate in shootaround and was listed as questionable heading into this contest. Williams has been struggling of late, averaging just 2.7 points over Charlotte's last three games. Frank Kaminsky could see an uptick in minutes if Williams has his evening cut short due to the migraine. This is a situation to avoid from a fantasy perspective.
Mar 6 - 5:26 PM

Marvin Williams (migraine headache) did not go through shootaround and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Sixers.

Williams has been struggling mightily of late. Over the Hornets last three games, he is averaging just 2.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist, while shooting 16.7 percent from the floor (3-of-18). If Williams is unable to play, Frank Kaminsky would likely slide into Charlotte's starting lineup and would be worth considering as a DFS punt.
Mar 6 - 10:50 AM

Marvin Williams had another lousy game on Sunday, going 1-of-6 from the field for two points with four rebounds, one block and one turnover in 22 minutes.

Williams is now a combined 3-of-18 from the field over his past three games, as well as an uncharacteristic 1-of-4 at the FT line. There's been no word of an injury for the 13th-year veteran, so this has the making of a good old-fashioned slump. Most owners can do better via the waiver wire.
Mar 4 - 8:46 PM

Marvin Williams finished with 15 points across 21 minutes in Friday's 122-105 win at Washington.

Williams hit 5-of-9 from the field, including 4-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, and he added two rebounds with a blocked shot and just one turnover. Inexplicably, he was just 1-of-3 from the free-throw line for his ugliest area of the night. He looks rejuvenated after the All-Star break, averaging 13.0 PPG with 2.5 3-pointers per contest in the past two outings.
Feb 23 - 9:46 PM

Marvin Williams finished Sunday's blowout loss to the Raptors with just six points, five boards, one assist and one block over 24 minutes.

Williams' backup, Frank Kaminsky, wasn't much better with just 10 points, four boards and two triples in 22 minutes off the bench. "It was going to be a tough challenge for us coming off of a long road trip," Williams said after the loss. "I felt like we started the game off with a lot of juice. I think just down the stretch, we kind of faded and they kind of turned it on."
Feb 11 - 4:38 PM

Marvin Williams (ankle) looked fine in his return from a four-game absence on Thursday, tallying 10 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

The ankle looked like a complete non-issue for Williams, and considering he only played 23 minutes, he should be fine for Friday’s game in Utah. He was one of just two players to hit at least 50 percent of his shot attempts for Charlotte (Kemba Walker was the other guy), and tonight’s stat line was a pretty good representation of what we can expect from Williams on a nightly basis. He’s just a low-end guy, but he doesn’t really hurt you anywhere.
Feb 9 - 1:34 AM

Marvin Williams (ankle) said he will be available to play Thursday against the Blazers, and he will be in the starting lineup.

That should mean he'll be back after missing the last four games. The Hornets are expected to try to make a move at the deadline, so maybe Williams is traded, as well. If you're in a shallower league, Williams isn't a must-hold guy with so many pickups likely to be available.
Feb 7 - 3:44 PM

Marvin Williams (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Nuggets as expected.

This is his fourth game in a row on the shelf, but there's a "good chance" he returns on Thursday in Portland. He'll have a bunch of family and friends traveling to that game as well, so he has some extra motivation. Frank Kaminsky and Treveon Graham will hold down the fort tonight.
Feb 5 - 7:51 PM

Marvin Williams (ankle) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Williams has already missed three games in a row and previously said that he doesn't have a return date in mind. He did mention possibly playing on Thursday vs. the Blazers, but it's highly unlikely he plays tonight. Frank Kaminsky has played well in two out of three fill-in starts, but Treveon Graham outplayed him on Sunday night.
Feb 5 - 1:37 PM

Marvin Williams (ankle) said he doesn't have a return date in mind.

He said his ankle is progressing nicely, but he'll miss his third game in a row on Sunday vs. the Suns. Williams still has some swelling and stiffness, but he did some shooting, footwork drills and "light jumping" on Saturday. It doesn't sound like he will play vs. Denver on Monday either, but maybe he can make it back for Thursday vs. the Blazers. Frank Kaminsky has averaged 13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 triples in his last two fill-in starts.
Feb 4 - 9:55 AM

Marvin Williams (ankle) is listed as out on the injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Suns.

Wiliams has missed each of the Hornets previous two games, and the fact that they continue to list him out a day ahead of each contest if not particularly encouraging. Frank Kaminsky started in place of Williams on Friday and tallied 15 points, six rebounds and five assists in 30 minutes. Treveon Graham has also seen an uptick in playing time.
