Deron Williams scored five points with five rebounds, five assists and five turnovers in 22 minutes on Friday as he short-circuited against the Cavs.
Jarrett Jack (26 minutes, 16 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals) got the lion's share of minutes tonight but it has been the other way around for a while now. The timeshare between the two players is annoying, but Williams has been hot lately and owners might want to give him another game or two before moving him to their benches. Mar 28 - 12:52 AM

Deron Williams hit just 2-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer on Wednesday, but still had 10 points, seven rebounds and 14 assists in a win over the Hornets.

He had 10 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds on Monday, and while the shooting and points have been disappointing, he's at least coming through elsewhere. If you started him this week, he's probably helping your team win.

Deron Williams just missed a low-end triple-double in the Nets' 110-91 loss to the Celtics on Monday, scoring 10 points on 2-of-6 shooting with nine rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes.

Williams did not hit a three but he made all six of his free throws, outplaying Jarrett Jack (19 minutes, 1-of-9 FGs) on a relatively encouraging night. We don't trust anybody in Brooklyn these days, but Williams, Thad Young (12 points, nine boards, two steals, one three) and Brook Lopez (31 points, four rebounds, one steal, two blocks, 7-of-7 FTs) are your best bets. The Nets fell to 1.5 games back of Boston for the No. 8 slot with two teams in-between.

Deron Williams scored all 17 of his points in the first half during a 123-111 win over the Pacers on Saturday, adding one rebound, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

For the second night in a row, Deron disappeared in the second half. He looked good and was attacking the defense early on, so it's hard to say his performance was why coach Lionel Hollins didn't play him in the final 18 minutes. He's still worth starting in most leagues, but he's not someone who will carry fantasy owners with limited playing time.
Mar 21 - 10:06 PM

Deron Williams, Markel Brown, Joe Johnson, Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez are starting on Saturday against the Pacers.

They played a triple-overtime game on Friday and are on the road, so it was possible coach Lionel Hollins rested guys a la the Denver Nuggets. Williams was also benched for most of the second half and will get a chance to redeem himself.
Mar 21 - 5:46 PM

Deron Williams was benched for most of the late action against the Bucks on Friday, playing 22 minutes for four points, two rebounds, five assists and no turnovers.

He sat out 24 minutes of the second half and overtime combined tonight. Williams played well heading into tonight, but he just had no offensive game, making 1-of-6 from the field. HIs owners shouldn't worry too much and can expect him to be better on Saturday against the Pacers.
Mar 21 - 12:26 AM

Deron Williams took a hard hit to his left hand and wrist during Sunday's loss, but he continued to play and finished with six points, five boards, four assists and one steal.

He attempted only five shots, making two of them (including a 3-pointer), and he committed three turnovers in a thoroughly mediocre performance. D-Will's right wrist has been a problem throughout his career but fortunately this injury was to his left wrist, so it shouldn't have any lingering effects vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Mar 8 - 8:37 PM

Deron Williams made 2-of-16 from the field against the Suns on Friday, scoring a total of nine points with three rebounds, nine assists and one 3-pointer.

He can't shoot right now and is sitting at just 34.9 percent from the field since he returned from his rib injury last month. In those 14 games, Williams averaged 11.6 points, 3.3 boards 6.2 dimes, 0.9 steals and 1.0 treys. He is still getting minutes and there has been some incremental improvement before tonight, so he's worth owning in almost all leagues.
Mar 7 - 1:32 AM

Deron Williams scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Nets' 110-108 win over the Warriors on Monday.

The All Star break probably gave him a chance to rest his chronically injured ankles and owners just have to ride Williams until the wheels fall off. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, it's also a good time to sell-high.
Mar 2 - 11:29 PM

Deron Williams turned Rajon Rondo into a turnstile during a 104-94 win on Saturday with 25 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Jarrett Jack was no slouch either with 14 points and four dimes tonight. Williams has come out strong in the second half, averaging 15.6 points, 4.2 boards, 7.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 treys. If you were patient with Deron last month, it's starting to pay off.
Feb 28 - 11:28 PM

Deron Williams started again at point guard on Friday as expected, scoring 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting (no threes) with five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

Williams outplayed Jarrett Jack (four points, 2-of-9 FGs, five assists, one steal, one block, 23 minutes) and that hasn't been the case for most of the season. The Nets want things to work out with Williams so they'll give him every chance to stay on track, but he'll have his work cut out for him staying ahead. Either way, he should be owned in all formats now that he avoided falling off the cliff, at least for now.
Feb 28 - 3:09 AM

Deron Williams started again on Wednesday and had 10 points and six assists in 34 minutes on 4-of-14 shooting.

Jarrett Jack was back from his hamstring injury, but came off the bench and had 15 points in 28 minutes. It remains to be seen if Jack starts over Williams in the next one, but it would make more sense (at least to us) to leave Williams alone and start Jack at shooting guard. Stay tuned.
Feb 26 - 12:39 AM

Deron Williams was effective against the Nuggets on Monday with 16 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and one turnover.

Jarrett Jack missed his second consecutive game and it's led to consecutive double-doubles for Williams. It's been a while since he had one of those with his last double-double coming back on Dec. 16. Jack was ruled out this morning, so he's likely going to miss more time. Williams should be viewed as a must-start player until further notice.
Feb 24 - 12:25 AM

Deron Williams started for Jarrett Jack (hamstring) on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 12 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with four rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

Nice. And it's about time. Surely the All Star break helped him get his legs back and some time off probably didn't hurt the noggin, either. We're nowhere near declaring that he's back in the vicinity of his early season production, especially after beating up on L.A., but this outing makes him an interesting gambler's target via trade.
Feb 21 - 4:42 AM

Deron Williams will likely slide back into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Lakers with Jarret Jack (hamstring) unavailable.

He's going to get a very favorable matchup tonight, and there's a chance his return to the starting lineup becomes a permanent change. Williams is averaging 15.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 1.6 three-pointers per game as a starter, so owners will need to hope he can keep his job once Jack is healthy. As a side note, the Nets are paying Williams $19.8 million this season compared to Jack's $6.3 million.
