    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Scores six points in 28 minutes off bench

    Williams supplied six points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, and one steal across 28 minutes in Thursday's 103-93 loss to the Raptors. Kyle O'Quinn and Lance Thomas received the respective starts in place of Kristaps Porzingis (illness) and Carmelo Anthony (knee) on Thursday, but Williams ended up surpassing both in playing time while continuing to come off the bench. He's cemented himself as the Knicks' top reserve big man at this point, and could continue to receive around 25 minutes even once Anthony and Porzingis return to duty. That might be enough to make Williams worth a look in very deep leagues.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Double-doubles in season-high 36 minutes Tuesday

    Williams went for 19 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during the Knicks' 128-122 overtime loss to the Thunder on Tuesday. That's back-to-back 19-point double-double games for Williams, who has scored in double figures during eight of 14 January contests. Williams' minutes continue to rise each month, and he has found a nice groove off the Knicks' bench.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Double-double off the bench Saturday

    Williams scored 19 points (5-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 8-14 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, four assists and a steal in 34 minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the Hornets. The points and boards were both team highs, and the rebounds were a season high for Williams. He's been getting more court time recently and is now averaging 12.3 points and 5.9 boards in 22.9 minutes during the month of January, but his fantasy value has a definite ceiling as long as he's stuck behind rookie Kristaps Porzingis on the depth chart.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Plays 29 minutes Friday

    Williams posted nine points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 29 minutes during the Knicks' 116-88 loss versus the Clippers on Friday. Over the five most recent games, Williams has gone for 15.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, one steal, and 0.6 assists in 26 minutes per appearance. Of those figures, only his assists per game is down from his season average, and Williams is enjoying quality minutes off the bench lately.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Matches career-high with 31 points Wednesday

    Williams went for 31 points (11-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 9-11 FT), seven rebounds, and two steals in 32 minutes during the Knicks' 110-104 loss to the Nets on Wednesday. Williams did his best to help pick up the scoring load that was missing with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) sitting out. Over the last five games, Williams is averaging 13.4 points (52.1 FG, 10.0 3Pt, 88.9 FT), 6.8 rebounds, 0.6 steals, and 0.2 assists in 23 minutes per night, and he has established himself as a decent scorer off the bench in coach Derek Fisher's deep rotation.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Notches first double-double of season in Tuesday's win

    Williams notched his first double-double of the season with 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and 10 rebounds over 29 minutes in Tuesday's 120-114 win against the Celtics. Head coach Derek Fisher went with the short lineup and Williams managed to accumulate a season-high 29 minutes with Carmelo Anthony out for half the contest. D-Will took advantage, particularly on the glass, though those numbers likely won't persist unless Melo is expected to miss an extended period of time.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Contributes 18 points off bench in Tuesday's win

    Williams came on late to finish with 18 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT) with four rebounds over 18 minutes in Tuesday's 108-96 win against the Pistons. Williams played very little during the first half, but finished the game strong, helping the Knicks put the game out of reach. He also flashed some of that athleticism that made him a lottery pick, throwing down a reverse dunk. Williams has done a nice job providing scoring relief for the Knicks' second unit over the past seven games.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Scores 11 points in loss

    Williams provided 11 points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, two blocks, and one steal across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 91-84 loss to the Cavaliers. Williams' scoring hasn't exactly fallen off a cliff since he exploded for 17 points on Dec. 18 against the 76ers, but he's still only averaging 8.3 points to go along with 3.7 rebounds over his last three games. The veteran forward is averaging just 13.6 minutes on the campaign and isn't likely to see his role expand unless the starting frontcourt of Kristaps Porzingis and Robin Lopez suffers an injury.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Scores 17 points Friday

    Williams went for 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, and one steal in 22 minuets during the Knicks' 107-97 win versus the 76ers on Friday. Williams posted his highest point total since the season opener. Still, he is a very unreliable fantasy option given that he doesn't get a lot of minutes.

    Knicks' Derrick Williams: Sees minutes spike in blowout

    Williams played 20 minutes in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Jazz, finishing with seven points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist. With the Knicks getting virtually no production from their starters in the first half, coach Derek Fisher emptied the bench for much of the second half, resulting in Williams seeing his highest minutes total since Nov. 6. Not every game will have such extensive garbage time, however, so expect Williams to typically settle for a lower-usage role off the bench.
