Description: Raptors guard Louis Williams played very well during Friday's victory against the Pacers.
Insight: He had a team-high 26 points off the bench, along with four rebounds, three assists, five 3-pointers, and two turnovers. Williams is a top-100 option.
 
Hot12/1/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Louis Williams should be a viable fantasy option while Demar DeRozan is sidelined for about a month.
Insight: Williams has always been a scorer and this will give him more playing time, but he won't help you in the other fantasy categories. He's averaging 22 ppg over his last five contests.
 
11/22/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Louis Williams scored a season-high 36 points in Saturday's win against the Cavaliers.
Insight: He did so off the bench in 29 minutes, going 9-of-19 from the field and 15-of-15 from the line. Williams added four rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist, and three steals. This may be the best game Williams gives owners all season.
 
10/25/2014 1:54:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Louis Williams will be a reserve for Toronto this season.
Insight: He relished in that role in Atlanta, but the Raptors backcourt is quite crowded with Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and Greivis Vasquez. Williams will likely not touch the ball enough to be relevant in standard fantasy leagues unless there is an injury.

Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams won't be in action Sunday versus Indiana. SOURCE: Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: He's dealing with a sore hamstring. Kyle Korver (12.2 ppg) played 36 minutes the last time Williams sat out and should see a similar workload tonight.

Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams will not play Thursday against the Bucks, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: Williams is away from the team for a personal reason. He was been a DNP-Coach's Decision in each of the last three games.
 
3/8/2014 4:45:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams did not play due to coach's decision Friday after playing just five minutes Wednesday. According to ajc.com, coach Mike Budenholzer opted for a bigger lineup Friday and Williams was not a part of it.
Insight: It's a curious time to bench Williams, as he had scored in double figures in seven straight games while averaging 14.4 ppg, 4.0 apg and 2.0 3pg prior to Wednesday's contest. His next longest streak of games with double-digit points this season is four.

12/28/2013 10:17:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams scored 28 points with five rebounds and four threes in 34 minutes Saturday against Charlotte.
Insight: Williams has scored 25-plus points two other times in the last two weeks. Both times, he followed it up with two straight games below 10 points. We'll see if he can have a better encore Sunday at Orlando.

12/14/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams had 27 points with six threes in 29 minutes Saturday against the Knicks.
Insight: It was his first 20-point game since returning from a torn ACL on Nov. 15 and it came in his first back-to-back of the season. Williams hasn't had to sit out any games since Nov. 30.
 
12/2/2013 1:36:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams is probable for Monday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Williams missed the last game because he doesn't play in back-to-back contests while recovering from a knee injury. He's not playing at a fantasy-worthy level yet, but he's still kicking off the rust from a year layoff.
 
11/29/2013 6:43:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shooting guard Lou Williams will get the start Friday against the Mavericks. SOURCE: Chris Vivlamore, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: However, he will be on a minutes limit. Williams hasn't played a back-to-back since his knee surgery so we wouldn't expect to see him Saturday against Washington.
 
11/27/2013 5:17:00 PM
