Williams grabbed one rebound and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 16:48 of playing time. He added one block.
Analysis: Williams is getting around 20 minutes a game since joining the Cavs last week. Barring a Kyrie Irving injury, he's no longer a desirable option for fantasy purposes.
Mar. 4 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET3:54 GMT11:54 8:54 PM MST10:54 PM EST7:54 UAE (+1)04:5422:54 ET9:54 PM CTNaN:� - Williams scored 10 points Saturday on 4-of-11 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Miami Heat 120-92. Williams pulled down five rebounds and had seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -14 in his 26:34 on the floor.
Analysis: Williams will likely start when Kyie Irving is rested, like Saturday.
Mar. 3 6:21 PM PT7:21 PM MT8:21 PM CT9:21 PM ET2:21 GMT10:21 7:21 PM MST9:21 PM EST6:21 UAE (+1)03:2121:21 ET8:21 PM CTNaN:� - Williams scored two points Friday as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 135-130. Williams had seven assists in his 17:21 on the floor.
Mar. 1 9:18 AM PT10:18 AM MT11:18 AM CT12:18 PM ET17:18 GMT1:18 10:18 AM MST12:18 PM EST21:18 UAE18:1812:18 ET11:18 AM CTNaN:� - Williams is set to make his debut with the Cavs on Wednesday.
Analysis: It should be interesting to see how Cleveland utilizes its new pieces. Keep an eye on this situation.
Mar. 1 6:56 PM PT7:56 PM MT8:56 PM CT9:56 PM ET2:56 GMT10:56 7:56 PM MST9:56 PM EST6:56 UAE (+1)03:5621:56 ET8:56 PM CTNaN:� - Making his Cavaliers debut, Williams scored four points as Cleveland fell to the Boston Celtics 103-99 on Wednesday. Williams finished 2 of 8 from the field, grabbed two rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +4 in his 23:44 of playing time.
Analysis: Williams should receive a fair amount of playing time with the Cavs, though it'll primarily be off the bench unless Kyrie Irving is hurt. While the move to Cleveland greatly enhances the veteran point guard's chances of winning a championship, it likely deflates his fantasy appeal.
Feb. 23 1:32 PM PT2:32 PM MT3:32 PM CT4:32 PM ET21:32 GMT5:32 2:32 PM MST4:32 PM EST1:32 UAE (+1)22:3216:32 ET3:32 PM CTNaN:� - Williams, an Olympian and three-time All-Star who has never made it to the NBA Finals, signed as a free agent on Monday with the Cavs, giving the defending champions the backup point guard they've coveted and another playmaker to help them defend their title.
Analysis: Williams will initially come off the bench for the Cavs, who have been seeking a backup for All-Star Kyrie Irving all season. A 13-year veteran, Williams had his contract bought out last week by Dallas, cleared waivers on Saturday and told the Cavs he would sign with them.
Feb. 13 8:47 AM PT9:47 AM MT10:47 AM CT11:47 AM ET16:47 GMT0:47 9:47 AM MST11:47 AM EST20:47 UAE17:4711:47 ET10:47 AM CTNaN:� - Williams (illness) will start Monday against the Celtics.
Analysis: Williams returned from an eight-game absence Saturday to score seven points in 16 minutes against the Magic.
Jan. 25 7:10 PM PT8:10 PM MT9:10 PM CT10:10 PM ET3:10 GMT11:10 8:10 PM MST10:10 PM EST7:10 UAE (+1)04:1022:10 ET9:10 PM CTNaN:� - Williams (sprained toe) is available to play in Saturday's matchup with Orlando.
Analysis: The brittle veteran had been listed as doubtful after missing the past eight games.
Jan. 22 3:09 PM PT4:09 PM MT5:09 PM CT6:09 PM ET23:09 GMT7:09 4:09 PM MST6:09 PM EST3:09 UAE (+1)00:0918:09 ET5:09 PM CTNaN:� - Williams contributed 13 points, eight assists and five rebounds to the Mavericks' 122-73 rout of the Lakers on Sunday.
Analysis: Williams may be an injury waiting to happen, but he's still a usable fantasy player when he does take the court. The point guard has posted eight or more assists in six straight games, averaging 9.3 along with 13.7 points during that time frame.
Jan. 15 1:00 PM PT2:00 PM MT3:00 PM CT4:00 PM ET21:00 GMT5:00 2:00 PM MST4:00 PM EST1:00 UAE (+1)22:0016:00 ET3:00 PM CTNaN:� - Williams posted a second straight double-double with 13 points and 10 assists in Sunday's victory over Minnesota.
Analysis: The veteran point guard continues to be a solid source of assists, having dished out six or more in 12 of his last 15 games and reaching double figures in that category three times over that span. Williams' scoring has been more hit or miss, though he's tallied 20 points or more in three of his past six outings.
Jan. 13 5:56 AM PT6:56 AM MT7:56 AM CT8:56 AM ET13:56 GMT21:56 6:56 AM MST8:56 AM EST17:56 UAE14:568:56 ET7:56 AM CTNaN:� - Williams led Dallas to Thursday's 113-108 win over Phoenix in Mexico City by recording 23 points and 12 assists. The veteran guard went 4 for 5 from 3-point range and 9 of 15 from the field.
Analysis: Finally healthy after missing time earlier in the season with a calf injury, Williams has reached the 20-point mark in three of his last five games and played in 25 straight. He's averaging a respectable 15.4 points and 7.6 assists over his last 21 outings.
Jan. 2 9:55 AM PT10:55 AM MT11:55 AM CT12:55 PM ET17:55 GMT1:55 10:55 AM MST12:55 PM EST21:55 UAE18:5512:55 ET11:55 AM CTNaN:� - Williams (illness) didn't practice Monday but appears likely to play Tuesday against Washington.
Analysis: Williams had been listed as questionable for the game but got through Tuesday's shootaround without a problem. He has cooled off lately with an average of 8.3 points in the last three games, compared to 18.5 in his previous eight.
Dec. 30 9:32 PM PT10:32 PM MT11:32 PM CT12:32 AM ET5:32 GMT13:32 10:32 PM MST12:32 AM EST9:32 UAE06:320:32 ET11:32 PM CTNaN:� - Williams managed just eight points but doled out 11 assists to help the Mavericks defeat the Lakers on Thursday.
Analysis: Williams focused more on being a distributor in this one, taking just six shots. He's still averaging a respectable 16 points over his last six games and 8.1 assists in 15 contests since Dec. 3.
Dec. 26 8:14 PM PT9:14 PM MT10:14 PM CT11:14 PM ET4:14 GMT12:14 9:14 PM MST11:14 PM EST8:14 UAE05:1423:14 ET10:14 PM CTNaN:� - Williams came through with 24 points and nine assists in the Mavericks' loss at New Orleans on Monday.
Analysis: It's the veteran's highest scoring total since he put up 25 points in the season opener. Averaging 18.5 points, 7.3 assists and 33 minutes while playing in each of Dallas' last eight games, Williams is back to being a dependable fantasy player.
Dec. 22 6:10 AM PT7:10 AM MT8:10 AM CT9:10 AM ET14:10 GMT22:10 7:10 AM MST9:10 AM EST18:10 UAE15:109:10 ET8:10 AM CTNaN:� - Williams had 23 points and the Dallas Mavericks held off a furious Portland rally for a 96-95 victory Wednesday night.
Analysis: That's back-to-back 23-point games for Williams, who's having a bit of a resurgence for a team that has very few offensive options.
Dec. 19 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET4:22 GMT12:22 9:22 PM MST11:22 PM EST8:22 UAE05:2223:22 ET10:22 PM CTNaN:� - Williams led the Mavericks with 23 points and eight assists in Monday's loss at Denver.
Analysis: The oft-injured 32-year-old is showing he still has plenty left in the tank, averaging 17 points and 7.8 assists over the last six games. The problem is, fellow veteran point guard J.J. Barea returned Monday after a lengthy injury absence and could steal some of Williams' minutes.
