Mo Williams returned from a back injury and hit 2-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for six points and two assists in 14 minutes on Tuesday.
He's on a minutes limit and is being eased back in due to his fragile back, so it looks like Zach LaVine should hang onto the starting point guard job until Ricky Rubio is ready to return. Dec 16 - 10:02 PM

Mo Williams (back spasms) is expected to play limited minutes for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

Flip Saunders is hopeful he'll be able to get around 10-12 minutes from Williams tonight, and that's simply not enough time to put up numbers worth using in most leagues. Zach LaVine will likely get another start, but he'll draw a tough matchup vs. John Wall of the Wizards, and will be a risky option in daily leagues.

Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders is hopeful that Mo Williams (back) will be able to play some minutes against the Wizards on Tuesday night.

Saunders said the team will know more about Williams' availability after warmups, but it's looking like he may get limited run on Tuesday. Zach LaVine is likely to draw another start even if Williams is able to play, but both players' fantasy value is on thin ice as Ricky Rubio (ankle) inches towards a targeted early-January return.
Dec 16 - 12:10 PM

Mo Williams (back) returned to practice on Monday.

That bodes well for him playing on Tuesday against the Wizards. If he does return, coach Flip Saunders suggested Williams may play 10-12 minutes. He's not going to be a fantasy option this week and it's going to be tough to own him with Ricky Rubio eventually coming back. Zach LaVine is a low-end play with three games this week.
Dec 15 - 2:41 PM

Mo Williams (back spasms) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

Zach LaVine will draw another start in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers, and it's worth noting he put up a career-high 28 points during his last outing against LA. He makes for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Dec 14 - 6:36 PM

Mo Williams (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

Williams was limited during Saturday's practice, and if he's unable to go on Sunday, Zach LaVine will draw another start in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Stay tuned.
Dec 14 - 2:58 PM

Mo Williams (back) was limited in practice on Saturday and is questionable to play on Sunday.

The Wolves learned their lesson on Williams and playing him too much, so we still think he'll sit out against the Lakers. Zach LaVine should get another start against the Lakers, which is promising considering he had a career-high 28 points against them earlier this season.
Dec 13 - 3:14 PM

Mo Williams (back spasms) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

Zach LaVine will draw another start with Williams sidelined, but he'll have a tough matchup tonight against Russell Westbrook of the Thunder. LaVine has been very hit-or-miss this season, and while he'll have plenty of opportunity as the only healthy point guard on the roster, he's a risky play in daily leagues.
Dec 12 - 6:54 PM

Mo Williams (back spasms) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

Zach LaVine will likely draw another start on Friday, but he'll have a very difficult matchup vs. Russell Westbrook of the Thunder, limiting his value. Still, LaVine is worth considering in deeper leagues, as he's the only healthy point guard on the Wolves roster.
Dec 11 - 4:35 PM

Mo Williams (back) will not play on Wednesday night against the Blazers.

He is unlikely to play the entire week and it'll be Zach LaVine in the lineup. Williams can probably be cut in most leagues because Ricky Rubio will eventually come back and take away minutes from him. LaVine is a decent option against Damian Lillard tonight.
Dec 10 - 6:50 PM

Mo Williams (back) is doubtful for Wednesday against the Blazers and could be out for the week, according to coach Flip Saunders.

The Wolves played him 39 minutes on Dec. 3 and it burned them. Williams has really struggled to stay healthy and he looks like he'll miss multiple games. Zach LaVine is a good bet for a few more starts with Corey Brewer getting more run, too.
Dec 10 - 2:17 PM

Mo Williams (back) will not play on Monday.

That means rookie Zach LaVine draws the start at point guard once again. He's averaging 11.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists on 42.3 percent shooting in seven starts this season, but he may struggle against Stephen Curry and the Warriors on Monday. He's an option in deeper formats while starting.
Dec 8 - 10:25 AM

Mo Williams (back) is out for Saturday's game against the Spurs, and is not even traveling with the team.

This is just a reminder, as coach Flip Saunders made the announcement on Friday regarding Williams' status. Zach LaVine will draw another start, but is only an option in deeper leagues or as a cheap daily plug-and-play in what will be a tough matchup. We will monitor Williams' status closely, and he should still warrant standard league consideration at least until Ricky Rubio (ankle) eventually returns.
Dec 6 - 11:04 AM

Timberwolves' head coach Flip Saunders said that Mo Williams will not travel with the team for Saturday's game vs. San Antonio.

That means that Zach LaVine will draw another start on Saturday, but he'll have a tough matchup against the Spurs. Still, he'll have some short-term value while Williams is sidelined, and Andrew Wiggins will also be given a larger than usual offensive workload.
Dec 5 - 7:06 PM

Mo Williams (back) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

The Wolves cannot catch a break these days and will have to figure out who can help Zach LaVine at the point. Corey Brewer will likely help out with the ball handling while Andrew Wiggins may also get some more chances to score. Williams should be considered a little closer to doubtful for Saturday vs. San Antonio.
