Deron Williams hit 5-of-12 shots, two 3-pointers and 11-of-13 free throws for 23 points, two rebounds, five assists and a steal in 42 minutes of Tuesday's overtime loss to the Jazz, his former team.
The Jazz play good defense and Williams was probably motivated against his former team, even though years have passed. He struggled with eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in his return from a hip injury on Friday, but has played very well in his last two games. Hopefully he uses the All-Star break to get fully healthy and keeps it going after the break. Feb 10 - 12:21 AM

Deron Williams had 22 points to go with 11 assists, two boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in Saturday's overtime win over the Grizzlies.

He was awful on Friday vs. the Spurs with just eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes, but he looked rejuvenated vs. the Grizzlies and this was one of his best performances of the season. He shot 8-of-20 from the field and didn't turn the ball over once, so hopefully he carries this momentum into Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz.
Feb 6 - 11:15 PM

Deron Williams' struggles continued on Friday as he only connected on 3-of-9 shots on his way to eight points, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

Williams has been struggling mightily over the past month, owning meager averages of 11.7 points, 4.6 assists, 1.0 three-pointer and 2.3 turnovers per game on 38.5 percent shooting. Those numbers have him ranking well outside the top 150 in standard leagues, although he still offers too much upside to outright drop. Perhaps he can get things back on track after the All-Star break.
Feb 6 - 2:14 AM

Deron Williams (right hip contusion) will play vs. the Spurs on Friday.

D-Will hurt himself on Monday but only missed one game, a good sign for fantasy owners given his lengthy injury history. With Devin Harris (toe) doubtful to return prior to the All-Star break, there should still be extra minutes for backup guards J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton.
Feb 5 - 7:57 PM

Deron Williams (right hip contusion) has been listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

Coach Rick Carlisle is "hopeful" to have him back in the lineup and Williams said on Thursday that he would give it a go, but we should have a concrete answer after the Mavs' shootaround. For now, it sounds safe to pencil him back into lineups. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will lose some value if D-Will plays.
Feb 5 - 10:05 AM

Deron Williams (right hip contusion) said after Thursday's practice that he'll play Friday vs. the Spurs.

Rick Carlisle wouldn't officially confirm Williams' status, but he did say he was hopeful Deron would be out there, so it's looking like he'll play vs. the Spurs. With Williams active, J.J. Barea will return to the bench and Raymond Felton's minutes will take a hit. Owners should check back for official confirmation on Deron following Friday morning's shootaround.
Feb 4 - 3:17 PM

Rick Carlisle said that he's hopeful to have Deron Williams (right hip contusion) available for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

Williams sat out Wednesday's game with the hip injury, but he was moving around better at shootaround, and there's a chance he's able to get back on the court Friday night. Williams return to the lineup would result in J.J. Barea heading back to the bench, and there would be less minutes available for Raymond Felton. Check back for another update on Williams following Friday morning's shootaround.
Feb 4 - 2:48 PM

Deron Williams (right hip contusion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

Williams was moving around better during Wednesday morning's shootaround, but the Mavs won't rush anything with the oft-injured point guard. It'll be Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea seeing an uptick in minutes tonight with both Williams and Devin Harris (toe) out, with Barea likely to enter the starting lineup. The Mavs play the Spurs on Friday, so we'll be considering Williams questionable for that one.
Feb 3 - 12:37 PM

Deron Williams (right hip contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

Williams was forced out of Monday's loss to the Hawks with the hip injury, and Rick Carlisle said after the game that he was "concerned" about the injury, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Dallas err on the side of caution with the oft-injured point guard and keep him out of Wednesday's game. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will benefit if Williams is forced to miss any time.
Feb 3 - 10:04 AM

Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Deron Williams (hip contusion) suffered a "hip-to-hip" collision in Monday's loss to the Hawks.

Williams was walking with a noticeable limp after Monday's game and is considered day-to-day going forward. We'll have updates after shootaround on Wednesday, but J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton are both in line for more minutes if D-Will is unable to suit up against the Heat (and beyond)
Feb 2 - 10:28 AM

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said he is "concerned" about Deron Williams (hip).

"I don't know anything about a timetable or anything like that, but I'm concerned." Williams left Monday's game after a hard fall and never returned, and this quote by Carlisle isn't very encouraging. If D-Will ends up missing time, J.J. Barea would be the best add, while Raymond Felton would also see a boost in minutes.
Feb 1 - 10:49 PM

Deron Williams (hip contusion) will not return on Monday night.

He had a fall, the team announced he will return, and then finally ruled him out 10 minutes later after the "will return" announcement. Hip contusions can be a tricky injury with guys like Otto Porter having some issues recently. It's still likely a day-to-day thing, so J.J. Barea and Ray Felton only get a slight bump beyond tonight.
Feb 1 - 8:51 PM

Deron Williams lit up the Suns for 27 points on Sunday, making 10-of-19 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

D-Will took advantage of a decimated Suns' backcourt, resulting in his highest-scoring performance since Dec. 1. He's inside the top-100 for 8-cat and 9-cat value and could creep higher if he increases his assists (5.5 per game) -- Williams makes the second-most passes per game (72.9) yet he ranks 18th in potential assists per game (12.0).
Jan 31 - 10:15 PM

Deron Williams (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Suns, as expected.

There was never any doubt about Williams' availability for Sunday's game, and he could be asked to do a bit more tonight with Dirk Nowitzki being rested. Go ahead and get him active.
Jan 31 - 5:41 PM

Deron Williams scored 12 points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He did tweak his ankle in the first quarter, but played through it without incident. We probably wouldn't have even mentioned this but Deron has a slew of ankle issues in his career. He should be all good for the weekend.
