Mo Williams will reportedly pick up his $2.2 million player option for the 2016-17 season.
The deadline to make a decision is June 16, but it makes sense for Williams to pick up the option due to the concerns about his troublesome knee. The 33-year-old guard averaged 8.2 points, 2.4 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 0.9 3-pointers during the regular season, but he's been out of the rotation in the postseason and is currently the third-string PG on the depth chart.

Date:

Mo Williams (knee) didn't leave the Cavs' bench during Sunday's Game 4 win in Detroit.

Williams is active but he's not part of the rotation while Kyrie Irving and Matthew Dellavedova are healthy.
Apr 24 - 11:32 PM

Mo Williams is active for Friday night against the Pistons.

He's not likely going to be in the rotation anyway unless garbage time is a factor. Even with Matthew Dellavedova playing 17 total minutes next to Kyrie Irving in two games against the Pistons during this series, there isn't much of a role for Williams.
Apr 22 - 5:34 PM

Mo Williams (knee) will not play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He probably wouldn't be in the rotation most nights anyway. Matthew Dellavedova will back up Kyrie Irving and possibly get some off-guard minutes.
Apr 20 - 6:20 PM

Mo Williams (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Pistons.

Williams may or may not play, but with both Kyrie Irving and Matthew Dellavedova healthy, his playing status is largely irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Apr 20 - 11:27 AM

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is hopeful that Mo Williams (sore left knee) will return in time for Game 2 vs. the Pistons.

This means he won't play in Game 1 on Sunday, but the Cavs really don't need to rush him back anyways with Kyrie Irving and Matthew Dellavedova healthy. Williams' minutes should be limited in the playoffs when he is cleared to play, so he isn't worth deploying in most formats.
Apr 15 - 1:30 PM

Mo Williams (sore left knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. Detroit.

Williams is dealing with inflammation of cartilage under his left kneecap, but he's still hopeful to return at some point during the postseason. With Kyrie Irving (rest) out for Wednesday, Matthew Dellavedova will log heavy minutes for the Cavs.
Apr 12 - 9:58 PM

Mo Williams (sore left knee) is heading to see Dr. James Andrews for further evaluation.

Anytime an athlete goes to see the renowned Dr. Andrews, you know it's a potentially serious situation. Williams began experiencing "discomfort and increased soreness" last week, and an update will be provided on his status following his evaluation. In other words, don't expect to see the veteran back on the court anytime soon.

Mo Williams (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

He is experiencing discomfort in his left knee once again and will head back to Cleveland for an MRI. He doesn't play much when the Cavs are at full strength, so this doesn't have any fantasy implications.
Apr 8 - 1:39 PM

Mo Williams had six points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 13 minutes during Sunday's win vs. the visiting Hornets.

Mo returned to the rotation with Kyrie Irving (ankle) unavailable, but still wound up with a quiet line in limited minutes. The veteran has dealt with a variety of injuries this season and is little more than backcourt insurance for Cleveland.
Apr 3 - 6:22 PM

Mo Williams admitted that his knee pain could linger for the rest of his career.

"I think it’s something I’ll have to deal with the rest of my career," Williams said. "Just maintaining and doing what I’ve got to do. It’s been bothering me the last couple years." Williams doesn't plan on retiring at the end of the season, but this probably means that he won't be able to handle a significant workload at this point in his career. He belongs on the wire.
Mar 27 - 1:26 PM

Mo Williams scored eight points in 13 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

That's actually a pretty nice line. However, he stepped up with Kyrie Irving (rest) out, so he'll likely be going back to a DNP-CD once Irving is ready to go. Leave Williams on the wire.
Mar 26 - 11:48 PM

Mo Williams (knee) is expected to play 10-12 minutes on Saturday against the Knicks.

Kyrie Irving (rest) is out, so Williams will back up Matthew Dellavedova. Williams obviously isn't a great option and this minutes restriction is actually an encouraging sign for Dellavoedova tonight.
Mar 26 - 6:05 PM

Mo Williams (knee) could return to action on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

He's been sidelined for over a month, but the Cavs will need him tonight with Kyrie Irving (rest) out. To be clear, Matthew Dellavedova is the better target in DFS and Williams' minutes will likely be limited if he plays.
Mar 26 - 10:44 AM

Mo Williams (left knee) has no timetable to return to game action.

Williams will return to practice on Tuesday and "participate to tolerance," but don't expect to see him in a game anytime soon. Even when active, Mo Butta belongs on the waiver wire.
