Marvin Williams returned from his shoulder injury on Wednesday and had six points and three rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench.
He didn't really have value when starting, and if he's coming off the bench permanently now, it's going to get even worse. If you somehow own Williams and can drop him for Cody Zeller, do it. Dec 3 - 10:29 PM

Marvin Williams (shoulder) will return to the lineup on Wednesday against the Bulls and will come off the bench.

His minutes are probably going to be a bit limited and his minutes were already heading south even before the injury. Williams is not a great fantasy option in almost any league right now.
Dec 3 - 5:26 PM

Marvin Williams (shoulder) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

Part of the reason why the Hornets have been so disappointing this season, Williams has been playing poorly and his shoulder injury is another reason why owners in standard leagues should continue to ignore him. Unless you are in a very deep league and are desperate for 3-pointers, leave him on your waiver wire. Cody Zeller has been starting in his absence, and is worth a look in most leagues despite being wildly inconsistent.

Marvin Williams (shoulder) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Chicago.

Williams does not do enough statistically to be owned in standard leagues, and it'll be interested to see what happens to Cody Zeller upon Williams return. Zeller has been hit-or-miss as a starter, following up a double-double effort with a scoreless outing in which he grabbed just three rebounds. The Hornets also lost both of their games with Zeller in the starting lineup, but they've also lost plenty of games with him as a reserve. Stay tuned for more updates, as we'll be watching this situation closely.
Dec 2 - 5:29 PM

Marvin Williams (shoulder) was limited in practice on Monday and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

He was doubtful for Friday and he probably has the best shot to play among the injured trio of Williams, Gary Neal (shoulder) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot). Cody Zeller is actually making jumpers this year and is worth a look this week. He might keep his fantasy value upon Williams' return, too.
Dec 1 - 2:34 PM

Marvin Williams (shoulder) will not play against the Warriors on Friday or Saturday against the Hawks.

He can't stay healthy this season, but the Hornets won't miss him much anyway. The team is hoping he'll be ready for Wednesday against the Bulls. Cody Zeller has really picked it up lately and is a solid option in daily leagues.
Nov 28 - 5:20 PM

Marvin Williams (shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

If Marvin sits, Cody Zeller would draw the start at power forward, however he has an unfavorable matchup today against Draymond Green of the Warriors, and on such a busy Friday night owners in standard leagues could probably do better.
Nov 28 - 12:44 PM

Marvin Williams was scoreless in 11 minutes of action on Wednesday, starting at PF but finishing with just one rebound and two assists to his credit.

Cody Zeller had nine points and seven boards off the bench, while playing superior defense vs. LaMarcus Aldridge, and it's fair to question how much longer Williams will keep his starting gig. The Hornets shot 42.6 percent in their previous six games, all losses, and finished tonight's defeat just 41-of-94 from the field (43.6 percent). Something has to give.

Marvin Williams should get plenty of minutes at small forward on Wednesday in order to match up with the Blazers.

It doesn't really matter where Marvin plays, as he's just not that good these days. However, this should also mean more Cody Zeller at PF and Zeller has been playing pretty well over his last few games.
Nov 26 - 11:28 AM

Marvin Williams didn't attempt a free throw vs. the Heat on Sunday, extending his FT-less streak to an astounding 354 minutes.

He's one of four players in NBA history to begin a season with 300+ minutes without any free throw attempts, and there's no telling when the streak will end. He finished Sunday's game with seven points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds and one assist, and he's only worth considering if you're desperate for 3-pointers.
Nov 23 - 8:48 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) played 23 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with eight points, three rebounds and one steal.

He played a little more small forward tonight because the Hornets are so thin on the wing. Williams is not going to be involved enough in the offense to be used in most fantasy leagues.
Nov 20 - 3:04 AM

Marvin Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

He played on both Friday and Saturday despite being listed as doubtful and questionable, respectively, so there's a good chance that he'll be in uniform. That doesn't mean he'll have fantasy value, however, as he's coming off a scoreless game and hasn't been consistent enough for use outside of very deep leagues.
Nov 18 - 9:26 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) started Saturday's game vs. the Warriors but went scoreless with three rebounds and one turnover in 15 minutes.

Williams missed all three of his field goals and he's been dreadful over the past five games, averaging 4.2 points on 38.1 percent shooting. He doesn't contribute enough in other categories to make up the difference, and doesn't warrant fantasy owners' attention outside of the deepest leagues.
Nov 17 - 12:27 AM

Marvin Williams (knee) will suit up for Saturday's game.

He was questionable leading up to the game so it's good to see him available to play in this one. However, Williams hasn't been a consistent option this season and should only be considered in deep leagues for owners in need of 3-pointers.
Nov 15 - 9:15 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He played through a doubtful tag on Friday, so it wouldn't be a big shock to see him sit tonight. Williams has been too inconsistent to be counted on even with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out.
