Mo Williams (knee) was unable to practice on Thursday, and is questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards.
With Williams dealing with some soreness in his left knee, Kemba Walker could be in line for all the minutes he can handle against the Wizards. Williams is worth holding onto for now, but fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to hit the drop button if he ends up missing games. Mar 26 - 1:52 PM

Mo Williams hit just 2-of-10 shots for nine points, four rebounds and six assists on Wednesday.

Mo-Will has hit just 6-of-26 shots over his last two games, both of which have featured Kemba Walker as the starter. He will probably get hot again, but was a much more reliable play when Walker was hobbled. Start him at your own risk.
Mar 25 - 11:26 PM

Mo Williams played 34 minutes against the Bulls on Monday, making 4-of-16 from the field for 15 points with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

As much as the shooting line stinks, Mo's usage, minutes and other stats are solid here. Plus, if Al Jefferson (knee) needs to miss time, there should be more shots for Williams. He's a hold in standard leagues even though he's coming off the bench.
Mar 23 - 11:21 PM

Mo Williams torched his former team for 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting on Sunday, helping the Hornets earn a 109-98 win in Minnesota.

Kemba Walker's return has dented Williams' value and moved him to the bench, but he's still a reliable source of points, 3-pointers and assists. To wit, he drained four shots beyond the arc tonight while chipping in four rebounds, four assists and a rare block.
Mar 22 - 9:39 PM

Mo Williams was moved to the second unit on Friday, finishing with nine points on 3-of-15 shooting, two threes, one rebound and four assists in 31 minutes.

Williams and his teammates struggled and the move to the second unit may have thrown off his timing. The volume and minutes are still good and owners shouldn't move the needle too much based on this performance, though the keys have officially been handed back to Kemba Walker and that ding to Williams' value was bound to happen regardless.
Mar 21 - 2:34 AM

Mo Williams was unfazed by the return of Kemba Walker on Wednesday, racking up 20 points, eight assists and a 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

Walker was back in action after missing an extended time due to a knee injury, but hit just 2-of-9 shots (both 3-pointers) in 16 minutes for six points. The two are expected to start together in the back court once Walker is fully up to speed, so we'll have to see what exactly Williams' value is going to look like 10 days from now. Just hold onto him and keep starting him for now.
Mar 11 - 10:45 PM

Mo Williams scored a team-high 19 points against the Wizards on Monday during a 95-69 loss with seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Williams was 1-of-10 from beyond the arc, but this is still a solid line. Over his last five games, he averaged 19.4 points, 10.0 dimes, 0.6 steals and 2.0 treys. He is likely going to lose some shots and minutes once Kemba Walker returns, but he's been too good to drop until we see him fall off.
Mar 9 - 9:57 PM

Mo Williams scored 23 points against the Raptors on Friday with seven assists, one block and four 3-pointers.

The Hornets clearly made a great trade for Mo and now they're sitting in the No. 7 spot in the East. Even with Kemba Walker (knee) targeting a return next week, Williams is still likely going to find a way for minutes. The Hornets used Brian Roberts next to Walker in the fourth quarter quite a bit and Roberts wasn't even good. Williams' fantasy owners should just ride him out until his value goes away. That might not even happen.
Mar 6 - 11:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Hornets' head coach Steve Clifford said that while the plan is to play Mo Williams and Kemba Walker (knee) a lot together, the pair will not come out starting games.

To be clear, Walker is not targeting a return until Wednesday, so Williams will remain with the starting unit for at least three more games. Gerald Henderson will then have the opportunity to remain a starter next to Walker when he does eventually return, so it appears that Lance Stephenson may be the odd man out of the rotation with both Williams and Henderson ahead of him in the pecking order.
Mar 6 - 6:10 PM

Head coach Steve Clifford said that Mo Williams will remain with the starting unit upon Kemba Walker's (knee) return.

"We’re going to play them together," Clifford said. "We need to get [Walker] back as soon as we can, and then we’ll make an adjustment on the fly to play those guys together." With Williams set to remain with the starting unit, Gerald Henderson will likely head to the bench where he'll embrace a sixth man role with the team. Lance Stephenson is currently behind Henderson in the rotation, so he could find difficulty leaving the bench when Walker does return.

Mo Williams had 14 points, 14 assists and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

Mo-Will is averaging 21.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 9.4 assists and 3.0 3-pointers over his last five games, and has double-doubled in three straight. Kemba Walker may be coming back in a week, but the Hornets are getting great mileage out of Williams and now sit in the No. 8 spot as a potential playoff qualifier. It remains to be seen just how the Hornets use Walker when he's available, as things are going well with Williams running the point after winning three straight games.
Mar 4 - 11:32 PM

Mo Williams scored 23 points and dished out 11 assists to help Charlotte defeat the Magic on Sunday.

Mo Will sank 9-of-16 shots including a 4-of-7 mark beyond the arc, and he added two rebounds with only two turnovers in 38 minutes. Kemba Walker is targeting a return in mid-March but that's not guaranteed, and Williams could still carve out value while leading the second unit. Congratulations if you happened to own him when he was dealt to the Hornets.
Mar 1 - 8:54 PM

Mo Williams hit 9-of-23 shots (including six threes) for 31 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal over 37 minutes on Friday against the Celtics.

Williams has been a bountiful add not once but twice this season. Even when Kemba Walker returns in mid-March there should be enough food at the table for him to eat in Charlotte.
Feb 28 - 12:49 AM

Mo Williams scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half against the Bulls during a 98-86 win on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

His numbers look great in Charlotte, averaging 23.0 points, 7.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 4.0 treys in his two previous starts. Williams is shaping up to be a must-start player in standard leagues until Kemba Walker (knee) returns next month.
Feb 26 - 12:42 AM

Mo Williams continued his stellar play with the Hornets in a loss to the Mavericks on Sunday, scoring 22 points with three assists, one board, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

The Hornets clearly got a bargain in their trade with the Wolves, as Williams has been nothing short of incredible with his new team. He scored 24 points with 11 assists and five 3-pointers on Saturday, and with Kemba Walker set to miss at least a few more weeks, Williams is going to be a must-start player for the foreseeable future. Congrats are in order if you were able to snag him off the wire. As for Brian Roberts, it's safe to drop him in almost all leagues after he failed to score in just 14 minutes.
