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.

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.

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.

Mo Williams had an exceptional start to his Hornet career on Saturday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Wow. He made the 1,000th 3-pointer of his career and he's likely going to make a heck of a lot more based on how he launched 10 attempts tonight. Williams is really a nice fit to help space the floor with Al Jefferson posting up and they really don't have a great shooter on the team right now. We still won't see Kemba Walker for a few more weeks, so Williams could be a top-50 guy until then. If you want help now, you almost have to add him after this one.
Feb 21 - 9:20 PM

Mo Williams will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

It's his first game with the team and he's already beat Brian Roberts for the starting job, which sums up how poorly Roberts played. Williams probably won't play more than 30 minutes tonight considering how often he's hurt. Plus, throwing him out there for more than 30 minutes against Russell Westbrook sounds like a cruel punishment. Williams is more of a scorer than Roberts, so expect slightly less scoring output from Gerald Henderson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Feb 21 - 5:19 PM

Mo Williams and Troy Daniels will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Pistons due to the timing of their flight.

Although the move will not happen tonight, Williams looks to be the starting point guard for the Hornets with Kemba Walker (knee) on the shelf, and Brian Roberts underperforming. While Roberts will get one more game as the starting point guard, the arrival of Williams essentially kills his value, and he can be dropped in most leagues. Williams is worth a speculative add in standard leagues, however, Troy Daniels will have a tough time cracking the rotation.
Feb 10 - 4:18 PM

The Timberwolves and Hornets have agreed to a trade involving Mo Williams and Gary Neal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Wojnaroski is reporting that Minnesota is sending Mo Williams and Troy Daniels to Charlotte for Gary Neal and a future pick in a move that will mean the end of the line for Brian Roberts' fantasy value. Williams will get a nice bump in value while Kemba Walker (knee) remains sidelined, while Neal and Daniels' value will remain limited. This move will also open up more minutes for Zach LaVine in Minnesota, but he's not worth more than a speculative add in deep leagues.

The Hornets had discussions with the Wolves about acquiring Mo Williams and Troy Daniels.

The talks have stalled with Minnesota in recent days. It's fairly clear that the Wolves would like to move Williams for a pick and it's even more clear that Brian Roberts isn't getting it done due to his inefficient shooting. If Williams is dealt, Zach LaVine would get more run, but he's not worth a speculative add considering his sub-par season. Williams would see a nice bump in fantasy value while Walker is out, assuming a deal is done.
Feb 9 - 4:05 PM

Mo Williams (hip) started Sunday's game with Ricky Rubio resting, and he scored 11 points with two 3-pointers, four boards, nine assists and three turnovers.

Williams logged 34 minutes and this was a golden opportunity for daily-league owners and anyone looking for a cheap PG boost late in the week, but it doesn't have long-term implications. Williams' value was dashed when Rubio returned and he's best suited to the waiver wire in typical leagues.
Feb 8 - 9:07 PM

Mo Williams will slide back into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pistons with Ricky Rubio (rest) unavailable.

Williams is much better with the starting unit, averaging 16.6 points, 7.6 assists, and 2.2 three-pointers per game. With a favorable matchup against Detroit, he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Feb 8 - 5:49 PM

Mo Williams scored seven points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

It's possible that Williams holds some low-end value in his backup role whenever Ricky Rubio (26 minutes) gets back to full-speed. And Rubio might be taking a game off during back-to-backs so that could also give him some breathing room. That said, his durability is an issue and owners can feel free to move on for a hot free agent.
Feb 7 - 2:19 AM

Mo Williams (hip) is available to play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He is going to come off the bench tonight and should get minutes in the 20s. Williams has been hurt a little too often to be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 7:53 PM

Mo Williams (hip) is considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Williams has lost a lot value due to the return of Ricky Rubio, but he was still able to put up 10 points and 10 assists in 25 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday. However, Williams has struggled to stay healthy this season, so if his hip causes him to miss any action it may force his owners to finally cut ties with the veteran point guard.
Feb 5 - 3:22 PM

Mo Williams scored 10 points with 10 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes off the bench on Wednesday against the Heat.

He was probable due to a hip injury and he was Ricky Rubio's backup tonight. Williams is still capable of being a top 100-125 guy while Rubio is active, so he's not a must-cut player in standard leagues. However, it makes sense to aim for higher upside, especially considering how often he is hurt.
