Mo Williams (ankle) played 32 minutes in his return on Wednesday, finishing with 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting, one 3-pointer, three boards and three assists.
Matthew Dellavedova was out with a leg injury so Williams gave Cleveland what he could, even starting the second half ahead of fill-in starter Jared Cunningham. Mo added a rare blocked shot tonight and it looks like he'll be fine for Friday's road game at Charlotte. Nov 25 - 11:11 PM

Mo Williams (ankle) will play Wednesday vs. the Raptors, but head coach David Blatt said that he will monitor his minutes.

If Blatt intends to monitor Mo's minutes, he may need to get creative with the point guard position as Matthew Dellavedova (calf) is headed for a game-time call. Williams is going to get a tough matchup against Kyle Lowry of the Raptors, and partnering that with a limited workload makes him an unattractive play in DFS.

Mo Williams (ankle) said that he will play in Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Williams has spent the past two games on the sidelines with an ankle injury, but he'll be back on the floor tonight which will send Matthew Dellavedova back to the bench. Williams will draw a tough matchup against Kyle Lowry of the Raptors, so he's not a great play in DFS.

Mo Williams (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Monday and Matthew Dellavedova will get the start.

Williams has some inflammation in his ankle and he could miss more games going forward. He's still a decent stash, but he will undoubtedly lose value once Kyrie Irving (knee) returns. Dellavedova is not a particularly strong player to own in season-long leagues.

Mo Williams (right ankle/leg) remains doubtful to play on Monday vs. Orlando.

Williams was deemed doubtful on Saturday, and nothing has really changed over the last couple of days. Without the veteran available, it will be on Matthew Dellavedova and Jared Cunningham to step up at point guard. As a starter, Delly is averaging 9.5 points, 8.0 assists and a triple on 50 percent shooting.

Mo Williams (right ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Hawks due to posterior right ankle inflammation.

He's also doubtful to play on Monday and the report added he's feeling continued soreness. Williams has taken a lot of time to get over injuries in the past, so inflammation showing up in the MRI suggests he could miss several games. Matthew Dellavedova should put up decent numbers in the next week and is worth a look if you need a point guard in the short term.
Nov 20 - 2:27 PM

Mo Wililams (leg) will receive treatment and is questionable to play against the Hawks on Saturday.

He was ruled out just minutes before the game on Thursday. Williams would be a must-start player, but he's certainly been injury prone in his career. If he's out, Matthew Dellavedova will get a chance to build off his career high in assists from Thursday.

Mo Williams (leg) will not play against the Bucks on Thursday.

Matthew Dellavedova will get the start tonight. Williams' right leg injury doesn't sound serious and he should be ready for the weekend. With Mo out, there should be more shots to go around to basically the entire team. Dellavedova should be decent, but his upside isn't too high.
Nov 19 - 7:57 PM

Mo Williams (right leg) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup against the Bucks.

The dreaded game-time decision. If Williams isn't able to give it a go, Matthew Dellavedova would likely play as close to 48 minutes as possible, and he'd make for a fine DFS target. J.R. Smith would also likely see a bit more opportunity on offense, but LeBron James and Kevin Love would continue to do the heavy lifting. Stay tuned.

Mo Williams (lower right leg soreness) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Bucks.

We'll keep an eye on Williams' status leading up to tip off, but he looks to be headed for a game-time decision. If Williams is unable to play, Matthew Dellavedova will see extra run and would make for a solid daily play on Thursday.
Nov 19 - 11:48 AM

Mo Williams scored 20 points with two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes on Friday.

With basically the other non-LeBron players failing to do much, there's a pretty good chance Mo can carve out a little role for himself once Kyrie Irving (knee) comes back. There's no doubt he'll take a step back, but Mo should be starting in all leagues right now.
Nov 14 - 12:03 AM

Mo Williams hit 8-of-9 shots, 4-of-4 3-pointers and 9-of-10 free throws for a season-high 29 points to go along with six rebounds, six assists and two steals in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 118-114 win over the Jazz.

Wow. That's five straight games in double-figure scoring for Williams and he's now averaging 19.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on incredible 55 percent shooting over his last five games. Kyrie Irving will eventually return and rain on his parade, but for now, Williams is as must-start as they come.
Nov 10 - 10:31 PM

Mo Williams struggled to knock down his shot during Sunday's win over the Pacers, shooting just 4-of-15 from the field to go with 10 points, eight assists, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

Williams’ fantasy value is directly tied to Kyrie Irving (knee). While he’s currently putting up fourth-round and fifth-round value in 9-cat and 8-cat leagues, with averages of 15.5 points, 5.0 assists and 1.7 three-pointers per game, there’s no way he can sustain that success once Irving gets back to the court. He’s not really a sell high candidate, as most people in fantasy hoops understand the current formula, so owners of Williams should just enjoy the ride while it lasts.
Nov 8 - 6:29 PM

Mo Williams scored 16 points on 8-of-12 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Friday's win over the Sixers.

Williams needs to have these games against bad teams because his time as a major player in the Cavs offense is limited to the early part of the season. He should be in all lineups until Kyrie Irving returns.
Nov 6 - 11:26 PM

Mo Williams scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound, three assists and one steal in Monday's win over the Sixers.

Williams is going to get you a blend of scoring and assists for however long Kyrie Irving is out. After that all bets are off.
