News: Williams (shoulder) left the game after just 11 minutes on Wednesday night. Impact: He left with a left shoulder strain, and we should know more about how much time he'll miss, if any, soon enough.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams went scoreless with three rebounds in 15 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday. Impact: Williams drew the start at power forward, but couldn't find much of an offensive presence in a game where the Hornets collectively only scored 87 points. He's now played 38 minutes in the previous two games, and considering he played in back-to-back games Friday and Saturday for the Hornets, he should most likely be over the knee tendinitis that has hampered his ability to play in a few matchups this season. He doesn't really offer much of one fantasy category, as he's only averaging 6.3 points and 3.5 rebounds on the season, so he'll offer minimal fantasy value moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (knee) will start Saturday night against the Warriors, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports. Impact: Williams was able to play through the injury Friday, so there was little reason to think he would miss Saturday's tilt. He'll be in his usual spot in the starting lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (knee) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Warriors, Steve Martin of the Hornets' official site reports. Impact: Despite being listed as doubtful, Williams returned for Friday's game against the Suns, recording five points and two rebounds over 23 minutes. He'll likely be able to play Saturday, as the Hornets have all of their banged-up players listed as questionable.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (knee) started and scored five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt) while adding two rebounds and a steal in 23 minutes against the Suns Friday. Impact: Williams had been listed as doubtful earlier in the day, but he managed to play through his injury. Even when fully healthy Williams never really stuffs a box score, but his production Friday was below his own average in almost every category. Unfortunately for fantasy players, Williams' nightly production is so low in the first place that it is hard to tell if the below-average night was due to the injury or just random nightly variance. If it was the injury that hampered Williams, then managers should take caution using him Saturday, since he will have little time to recover before his next game. If not, however, then Williams remains a sneaky source of threes while providing enough value across several other categories to be a useful option in deep leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (knee) is in the starting lineup Friday against the Suns. Impact: Williams will not only suit up for Friday's game, but will also start. He was initially considered doubtful after it was revealed he was dealing with tendinitis in his left knee. If he is limited in his minutes, Cody Zeller and Jason Maxiell could be the beneficiaries of added time.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (knee) will suit up Friday against Phoenix, reports. Impact: Williams was considered doubtful heading into the contest, but it appears the Hornets feel comfortable enough with his health to keep him active Friday. However, the report notes that Williams will be monitored in the early going just to make sure his knee is sound, potentially putting him at risk of seeing playing time below the 27 minutes he's averaged this season. The veteran forward is a solid rotation player for the Bobcats, but with averages of 7.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists, he hasn't produced enough counting stats to make much of an impact in fantasy circles.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (knee) is considered doubtful for Friday's game against the Suns, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Williams is dealing with tendinitis in his left knee, which flared up following Tuesday's game against the Blazers. If he is, indeed, unable to go, Cody Zeller will likely get the start at power forward. Williams is averaging 7.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists while shooting 48.0 percent from the field on the season.(RotoWire, )
