Cavaliers' Deron Williams: Underwhelms in Saturday's start

Williams accumulated 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists and three rebounds across 26 minutes during Saturday's 108-78 loss to the Clippers.

With LeBron James (rest), Kyrie Irving (rest/knee), and Kevin Love (rest) all out for Saturday's game, Williams drew the start but didn't perform particularly well. While his 4-for-8 shooting is certainly solid, he committed five turnovers along with his five assists, and failed to record a defensive statistic. That being said, the 32-year-old point guard's role within the team is that of Irving's backup when everyone is healthy, so Saturday's performance likely won't weigh too heavily on the team. His fantasy value has dropped substantially since leaving the Mavericks, and likely only remains an option in the deepest of year-long formats, or DFS when the Cavaliers' "Big Three" are sidelined.
