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.
Jul 28 - 1:10 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.
Jul 27 - 5:53 PM

The Knicks worked out Elliot Williams on Sunday, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Williams had a brief stint with the Pelicans at the end of last season and is now looking for a new opportunity in the NBA.
Jul 13 - 11:04 AM

The Pelicans will not sign G Elliot Williams for the rest of the season after his second 10-day contract expired on Wednesday.

The Pelicans decided to bring in G Toney Douglas, so the writing was on the wall for Williams. We will let you know if Williams gets another call from an NBA team, but he will likely spend his time in the D-League for the foreseeable future. Williams can be dropped everywhere.
Mar 25 - 11:40 AM

The Pelicans have signed G Elliot Williams to another 10-day contract on Saturday.

He is averaging 4.0 points, 1.0 assist and 1.0 rebound in 11.0 minutes per game in three appearances for the Pelicans, and unless his role grows significantly, he is only worth monitoring in deeper leagues.
Mar 14 - 12:11 PM

The Pelicans have signed G Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

He participated in the team's shootaround and is expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons. However, Williams likely won't be in the rotation right out of the gate, so owners in deeper leagues can simply monitor him from the waiver wire for now.
Mar 4 - 11:22 AM

The Pelicans are expected to sign G Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract.

Williams played five games for the Jazz earlier in the season on a 10-day deal, and put in averages of 3.6 points and 1.0 three-pointer per game on 46.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll help add some depth to New Orleans’ backcourt, but he's well off the radar in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 3 - 4:18 PM

The Hornets signed guard Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

The Hornets waived point guard Jannero Pargo in order to clear a roster spot, and Williams is expected to be available for Thursday's game against the Wizards. Williams previously signed a couple of 10-day contracts with the Jazz but wasn't able to ink a long-term deal with them. Gerald Henderson and Lance Stephenson are both currently healthy, so it's hard to imagine Williams earning a decent role right out of the gate in Charlotte. Owners in deep leagues can simply monitor Williams from the waiver wire for now.
Feb 4 - 10:43 AM

The Hornets are expected to give Elliot Williams a 10-day contract.

Williams recently signed two 10-day deals with the Jazz, but Utah elected to let him walk after his second 10-day contract expired. He averaged 3.6 points and not much else through five games with the Jazz, and his status as a hands-off guy in standard leagues will not change with the move to Charlotte.

The Utah Jazz will not re-sign Elliot Williams when his second 10-day contract expires.

This move comes as no surprise as Williams has only played in two of the Jazz' last five games. He's averaged 3.6 points in five games with the Jazz this season and can be left on the wire even if he hooks on with another team.
Jan 27 - 9:34 AM

The Utah Jazz have signed Elliot Williams to another 10-day contract on Saturday as expected.

He has averaged 2.7 points in 8.6 minutes per game with the Jazz so far, and there is no reason to think that his role will grow especially with Rodney Hood returning from injury. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 17 - 11:59 AM

Elliot Williams is expected to sign another 10-day contract with the Jazz.

He has seen very limited playing time with the Jazz and is only averaging 2.7 points per game, so owners can leave him on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Jan 17 - 9:08 AM

The Utah Jazz signed guard Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday, and he will join the team in Chicago for their game on Wednesday.

The Jazz have an obvious need for a shooting guard considering Alec Burks (shoulder) is out for the season and Rodney Hood (heel) is still sidelined, so Williams will likely battle Elijah Millsap, Joe Ingles, Ian Clark and Dante Exum for playing time for the time being. Needless to say, owners in standard leagues should use a wait-and-see approach here.
