Description: Hornets forward Marvin Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Friday against Golden State
Insight: Williams' absence would mean Cody Zeller would get the start at power forward, but his fantasy value is minimal.
 
11/13/2014 4:53:00 PM
Description: Hornets forward Marvin Williams (left knee tendinitis) is doubtful for Friday against the Suns.
Insight: Williams is not worth of pickup right now anyway. Leave him on the waiver wire.
 
10/27/2014 5:02:00 PM
Description: Hornets forward Marvin Williams will open the season as Charlotte's starting power forward.
Insight: After averaging 9.1 points per game, 5.1 rebounds per game, and 1.3 three-pointers per game last season, Williams should be left on waivers for the foreseeable future.
 
7/13/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Marvin Williams has agreed to a two-year, $14 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets.
Insight: Williams played 66 games with the Jazz in 2013-14, starting 50, and he averaged 9.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.3 threes. He'll fill minutes at power forward and small forward but won't be a good fantasy option.
 
4/14/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams (knee) is not expected to play Monday, according to Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Enes Kanter started the last two games with Williams out and averaged 14.4 points and 11.9 rebounds over his last seven.

Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams did not accompany the team Saturday for its game against Denver. SOURCE: Salt Lake Tribune
Insight: Williams, who is out with a bruised knee, missed last night's game as well. We're expecting Enes Kanter (12.1 ppg, 7.3 rpg) to start in his place.
 
4/11/2014 8:40:00 PM
Description: Utah power forward Marvin Williams (knee) will miss Friday's game, according to Jazz announcer David Locke.
Insight: Enes Kanter, who had 15 points and 19 rebounds Tuesday and has averaged 13 points and 9.3 rebounds over his last 26 games, will get the start and should be in all fantasy lineups.

Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game, according to Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Enes Kanter, who had 15 points and 19 rebounds Tuesday and has averaged 13 points and 9.3 rebounds over his last 26 games, will likely get the start and should be in all fantasy lineups.

Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams will be available Tuesday against Dallas. SOURCE: Jody Genessy, Deseret News
Insight: His status had been in question because of a bruised knee. The 27-year-old has been held to single-digit points in each of his last four games.
 
3/17/2014 6:45:00 PM
Description: Utah power forward Marvin Williams will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Rockets, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.
Insight: He sat out Friday because of a lower back injury and came off the bench Sunday. The team has been hesitant to hand over the starting job to 21-year-old Enes Kanter (12.2 ppg, 6.7 rpg) and instead has started Williams (9.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg) in 46 games.
 
3/16/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Utah power forward Marvin Williams will play Sunday, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.
Insight: He sat out Friday because of a lower back injury. Williams (9.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg) will come off the bench in his return but coach Ty Corbin said he could swap Williams and Enes Kanter when opponents start a stretch four. There's a chance that Kanter will start most of the games for the rest of the season, however.

Description: Utah power forward Marvin Williams is listed as probable ahead of Sunday's game with San Antonio. SOURCE: Aaron Falk, Salt Lake Tribune
Insight: He sat out Friday because of a lower back injury. Williams (9.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg) is shooting just 37.5 percent from the field in seven games this month. That's his lowest percentage since January 2013 (33.8).
 
3/14/2014 8:16:00 PM
Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams has a lower back strain and will miss Friday's game, according to Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: The Jazz are still awaiting the results of Williams' (9.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 1.2 apg) MRI, so coach Ty Corbin won't risk playing him. Enes Kanter will get plenty of playing time in his place.
 
3/13/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams has a lower back strain and will get an MRI Friday, according to Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Williams (9.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 1.2 apg) probably won't play Friday against the Clippers, allowing Enes Kanter to pick up more playing time.
 
Hot2/9/2014 9:14:00 AM
Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams has scored 21 or more points in three straight games.
Insight: Williams has averaged 18.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.6 threes over his last five games. He doesn't have much long-term upside but he's worth a pickup while he's hot.
 
2/4/2014 12:06:00 AM
Description: Jazz forward Marvin Williams' 23 points Monday against Toronto were his most all season.
Insight: Williams doesn't do anything to impress fantasy owners and shouldn't have a spot on most fantasy rosters.
 
1/31/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Utah forward Marvin Williams (heel) will sit out Friday, according to Jazz announcer David Locke.
Insight: Williams' surgically repaired Achilles is sore. He's only averaging 21.6 minutes, 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 threes over the last eight games and can be ignored in most fantasy leagues. Jeremy Evans will start at power forward.

Description: Utah forward Marvin Williams (heel) will be a game-time decision Friday, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.
Insight: Williams' surgically repaired Achilles is sore. He's only averaging 21.6 minutes, 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 threes over the last eight games and can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
 
1/13/2014 8:24:00 PM
Description: Utah forward Marvin Williams is going to try and play Monday against Denver. He left the team's shootaround earlier with an illness. SOURCE: Jody Genessy, Deseret News
Insight: It doesn't sound like Williams (9.6 ppg, 5.3 rpg) is going to be 100 percent so it's fair to question how effective he will be. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere on Monday night.
 
12/11/2013 8:52:00 PM
Description: Jazz SF/PF Marvin Williams will return from a four-game absence Wednesday against the Kings. SOURCE: Aaron Falk, Salt Lake Tribune
Insight: Williams sat out a week because of a sore heel. With averages of 10.4 ppg and 5.2 rebounds per contest, he's a borderline fantasy player.
