Mo Williams was a DNP-CD again on Monday.

There was no word on why he's missing games, but the Hornets are probably just getting a look at Troy Daniels. Williams can be dropped in all leagues.
Apr 13 - 11:17 PM

Mo Williams did not leave the Hornets' bench on Sunday.

He played eight minutes on Friday and the Hornets have officially shifted into player-development mode, benching Williams to give more playing time to P.J. Hairston (14 minutes) and Troy Daniels (28 minutes). With two games left on the schedule and the playoffs out of reach, Williams can be cut in all fantasy formats.
Apr 12 - 6:22 PM

Mo Williams played just eight minutes on Friday against the Hawks.

Williams hit 1-of-3 shots for three points, one rebound, four assists and one trey, which is about as well as one can do in that type of outing. Still, the Hornets have nothing to play for and Williams is basically a risk-reward play going forward and nothing more.
Apr 10 - 10:58 PM

Mo Williams scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, two assists and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Williams has consistently bounced back from bad outings but it's also possible that he has run himself down in the process. With the Hornets fading from playoff contention, watch to make sure he doesn't let up before the finish line.
Apr 3 - 10:45 PM

Mo Williams scored 18 points off the bench against the Hawks on Saturday with one rebound, four assists and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

He was technically questionable tonight for knee soreness, but it didn't seem to affect him. With the Hornets having some depth issues at the forward spots, Williams should have a little extra opportunity to score from both guard spots.
Mar 28 - 9:41 PM

Mo Williams (knee) is listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Saturday, according to the lineup sheet.

Coach Steve Clifford didn't say anything about an injury, but Williams has been dealing with knee soreness for a couple games. He should still play, but his owners will want to keep their eyes peeled. We'll have another update shortly.
Mar 28 - 6:28 PM

Mo Williams (sore knee) hit just 8-of-26 shots but everything else was golden on the stat sheet in Friday's double-overtime loss, finishing with 26 points, four treys, nine boards, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and a 6-of-7 mark from the foul line.

Williams' injuries are both risky and sometimes overplayed in the media, making it hard to know which ones to worry about or not. If he somehow got dropped go and pick him up.
Mar 27 - 11:20 PM

Mo Williams (sore knee) plans to play Friday vs. the Wizards.

Williams sat out practice on Thursday, but he'll try and give it a go tonight. Head coach Steve Clifford said that he will be monitoring Williams' sore knee closely in games, and he will limit his participation in practices. It sounds like Williams will give it a go tonight, but he could be yanked at the first sign of trouble, making him a risky play in standard leagues.
Mar 27 - 5:57 PM

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.
