Williams just can't stay healthy. He has some talent as a scorer, but he's had surgeries to his Achilles, knee and shoulder. He'll have a tough time making the Warriors.

The Warriors and Elliot Williams have agreed to a one-year deal.

It's a partially guaranteed deal for the oft-injured guard. Williams only played in five games with the Grizzlies last year, making just 20.0 percent from the field in 9.0 minutes per outing. He'll be fighting for a roster spot in October.

Elliott Williams is planning to leave Panathinaikos, according to his Instagram page.

It is unclear what his plans are, but the 26-year-old posted a goodbye message on his Instagram page and will be leaving the Greek squad. While Williams will likely try to hook on with an NBA team, he's more likely to wind up overseas and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Elliot Williams has signed with Panathinaikos of the Greek league.

Williams played five games on a 10-day deal with the Grizzlies last month, but will now head overseas to finish the season. While Williams was the D-League's leading scorer before his Grizzlies deal, he is now off the fantasy radar.

The Grizzlies are not expected to re-sign Elliot Williams, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Grizzlies have officially signed Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract.

With Mike Conley (Achilles), Courtney Lee (hip) and Jordan Adams (knee) all on the shelf, this signing couldn't have come at a better time. Williams could get minutes in the rotation right away, but for now he is only on the radar in deeper leagues. He will be active on Friday vs. the Nuggets and could reportedly see some time at point guard.

The Grizzlies are reportedly set to offer a 10-day contract to G Elliot Williams.

Hornets waive Sam Thompson, Jason Washburn, Damien Wilkins and Eliot Williams.

The Hornets are now at 15 players to start the season.

Elliot Williams returned from a strained left hip flexor on Saturday with nine points, two 3-pointers, one rebound and one steal in 15 minutes vs. the Knicks.

Williams isn't a lock to make Charlotte's final roster and his preseason injury didn't help matters. Jeremy Lin (illness), P.J. Hairston (calf) and Brian Roberts (knee) are all expected to play vs. Chicago on Monday, meaning we're unlikely to see much from Williams.

Elliot Williams (left hip flexor strain) will play on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

Williams has some serious durability issues and he is really going to have to impress if he wants the final roster spot on the Hornets. Fantasy owners can safely ignore him.

Elliot Williams (left hip flexor strain) did not practice on Friday.

He just can't stay healthy. Williams showed some promise about five years ago, but the injuries have really hurt his chances for playing time.
Fri, Oct 2, 2015 02:14:00 PM

Elliot Williams has battled several injuries throughout his NBA career, but he hopes that he can make an impact in Charlotte now that he finally 100 percent healthy.

"Last year was my (first) really-full year of being healthy," Williams said. "Now I feel like I’m 100 percent and ready to go." Williams has a career scoring average of 5.1 points in 13.7 minutes per game, and he has the capability of playing both guard spots. The Hornets already had the maximum of 15 players under contract before they signed Williams, so it's certainly not a lock that they keep him around.

The Charlotte Hornets have officially signed Elliot Williams.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but Williams won't provide much fantasy value even if he's able to land a spot on the Hornets' roster. Williams can be ignored for fantasy purposes for the 2015-16 season.
Tue, Jul 28, 2015 01:10:00 PM

The Hornets will sign Eliot Williams for training camp.

He worked out for the Knicks earlier this month, but the Hornets will make him their 16th player under contract. Williams has had a handful of really bad injuries in his career and hasn't been the same since his Achilles tear from 2012.
