Marvin Williams (knee) is doubtful to play against the Lakers on Monday.

He missed shootaround and is likely out for the season. This game has major implications for ping-pong balls and there's little reason to think Williams will be out there. The Jazz started Alec Burks on Saturday and will likely do so again.
Apr 14 - 4:12 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) will not play on Friday night.

He's been dealing with some knee pain and he's likely out for the season. Enes Kanter should be good to go agains the Blazers and is basically a must-start option.
Apr 11 - 8:20 PM

Marvin Williams will sit out Thursday's practice and is doubtful for Friday's game with a bruised left knee.

This is good news for Enes Kanter, who should be in the starting lineup with Marvin in street clothes. Kanter had a big game on Wednesday with 15 points and 19 boards.
Apr 10 - 11:48 AM

Marvin Williams left Tuesday's game and will not return after aggravating his left knee injury.

Give Marvin credit for trying to power through it, although we still don't understand why he was starting (again) over Enes Kanter. Williams is day-to-day.
Apr 8 - 9:43 PM

Marvin Williams will start for the Jazz on Tuesday, despite a knee injury that required an MRI.

While it hasn't been announced that Enes Kanter will come off the bench, it's looking like the case. The Jazz must really, really not want to start Kanter alongside Derrick Favors. Kanter still has a good matchup against the Mavericks, but we'd feel a lot better about his chances of success if Marvin were in street clothes. Or at least coming off the bench.
Apr 8 - 8:06 PM

Marvin Williams had an MRI that revealed a bone bruise in his left knee, leaving him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.

Owners of Enes Kanter should be hoping for a DNP from Williams, otherwise, Kanter might come off the bench.
Apr 8 - 12:40 PM

Marvin Williams sat out Monday's practice due to left knee inflammation.

The only good news is that it's not his right knee, which caused him trouble due to inflammation in early 2013 and required multiple injections to calm the swelling. He's listed as a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Mavericks.
Apr 7 - 12:55 PM

Marvin Williams started at PF on Sunday against the Warriors, notching seven points, four rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

Enes Kanter shifted to the bench, where he posted eight points and 12 boards in 23 minutes, but the two might reverse roles again vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday. Marvin has only averaged two more minutes while starting this year, so where he begins the game isn't altogether relevant in fantasy leagues.
Apr 6 - 11:38 PM

Marvin Williams moved into the starting lineup for matchup purposes in the Jazz's 92-83 loss to the Knicks on Monday, scoring five points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

Williams has been a top-100 play in 9-cat leagues over the last four games where his one turnover during that span significantly helps his value. He's nowhere near a safe bet to keep that up at this stage of the year, however, so owners should proceed with caution.
Apr 1 - 2:34 AM

Marvin Williams will start at power forward against the Knicks on Monday.

Enes Kanter will move to the bench tonight with the Knicks playing without Amare Stoudemire (rest). Williams is still not an option in most leagues while Kanter still has a good chance to put up a double-double.
Mar 31 - 8:14 PM

Marvin Williams scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Williams has been hit or miss lately and needs another mentionable game like this before we'll endorse an add in most formats.
Mar 25 - 1:45 AM

Marvin Williams played 23 minutes off the bench against the Grizzlies, scoring nine points with five boards, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He's going to be thrown in and out of the starting lineup as the Jazz play the matchups, but he should find his minutes in the mid-20s more often than not. Williams hasn't really been a per-minute dynamo, so he'll likely be too inconsistent to be counted on in most formats.
Mar 19 - 11:11 PM

Marvin William will come off the bench vs. the Grizzles on Wednesday.

His minutes dropped to just 20 in the starting lineup on Monday and he might be that neighborhood again tonight. Williams has had some good stretches thanks to shooting the ball well, but that's not happening with a field goal percentage of 33.8 over his last 10 games. He can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 6:34 PM

Marvin Williams moved back into the starting lineup against the Rockets on Monday, finishing with five points, two boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He returned from a back injury with an eight-point game on Sunday, so he has come out flat. Williams has been up and down throughout his nine-year career and even staying in the starting lineup doesn't mean he'll be putting up value worth using in standard leagues.
