      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Posts nine points in 19 minutes Monday

      Williams posted nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, and a steal in 19 minutes versus the Kings on Monday. Williams had a fairly efficient shooting night, but still saw his lowest minute total of the season. This can probably be attributed to his four personal fouls that kept him out of the game toward the end. Williams is still averaging 10.0 PPG and 7.1 RPG in 31.3 minutes per game, so it appears that he still has a secure hold on his starting role.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Will start at small forward Tuesday

      Williams (right pectoral strain) will start at small forward Tuesday against the Knicks. Williams was listed as probable with the injury coming into the week, but the Hornets cleared him to play after he was able to practice Monday. Though he's normally acted as a stretch four for the Hornets this season, Williams will move over to small forward Tuesday with P.J. Hairston (quadriceps) ruled out. As a result, Cody Zeller will come off the bench to start at power forward for Charlotte.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Listed as probable for Tuesday

      Williams is nursing a right pectoral strain, but is considered probable to play Tuesday against the Knicks. The injury didn't prevent Williams from practicing Monday, so barring a setback overnight, it doesn't seem likely that he'll be forced out of action Tuesday. After opening the season on shaky ground for a starting role, Williams has solidified his spot by averaging 10.4 points and 7.8 rebounds while shooting 45.3 percent from the floor and 39.5 percent from downtown over 10 games.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Posts another double-double Thursday

      Williams posted a double-double in Thursday's 108-94 victory over the Mavericks, pitching in 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and a block over 32 minutes. It was a memorable performance from the big man with the deft shooting touch, as he continues to provide excellent production across the stat sheet night in and night out. The double-double was Williams' third in six games on the new season, and the 17 points were a season best. Meanwhile, the 12 boards tied his high-water mark in that category over his first six contests. The veteran has also provided outstanding marksmanship from long range, shooting 44 percent from beyond the arc in 2015-16. Williams has been a boon to season-long fantasy owners who were savvy enough to grab him, and continues to be underpriced in daily leagues for the time being.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Double-double in debut after winning starting job

      Williams posted a 10-point/10-rebound double-double in the season opener. He made 4-of-10 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws, dished three assists and lost a turnover in 38 minutes of action. Williams was officially named the starter at power forward just before the game, beating out Cody Zeller for the role. Zeller contributed seven points and 12 boards in 30 minutes off the bench. Williams is more of a floor spacer than Zeller, and even though he missed all five of his three point attempts on Wednesday, the fact that he could take that many even on an off night suggests positive things for his three-point potential this season.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Gets nod as starter at small forward

      Williams will serve as the starter at power forward for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. The appointment to the starting lineup doesn't mean much, as both Williams and Cody Zeller were in line to see a similar allotment of minutes regardless of who garnered the start. In addition to playing power forward, Williams will also see time playing small forward when the Hornets opt to use bigger lineups.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Still in conversation for starting role

      Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said Tuesday that he hasn't decided whether Williams or Cody Zeller would receive the start at power forward for Wednesday's opener against the Heat, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. The two players bring varying skills to the table, as Zeller is a more traditional low-post big man, while Williams offers a bit more athleticism and floor-spacing ability. Regardless of who he goes with at power forward Wednesday, Clifford's usage of both players should remain fluid throughout the season, as the minutes count of either Williams or Zeller would likely be dictated by how they match up with the opposing team.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams: Still appears in mix for starting role

      Williams started at small forward in Wednesday's preseason game against the Pistons and finished with six points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and seven boards over 24 minutes. With Kemba Walker (bruised heel) sitting out Wednesday, both Jeremy Lin and Williams entered the starting lineup, as the Hornets continue to search for a player to step in for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who is likely lost for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery. It looks like the decision for a starting role is going to come down to Williams and Lin, both who offer differing skill sets. At 6-foot-2, Lin doesn't offer ideal size as the off-guard next to Walker, but his ability as a scorer gives him more fantasy appeal than a player like Williams, a serviceable small forward/power forward hybrid who doesn't offer standout production in any one phase. The decision on which player starts may ultimately come down to what the opponent rolls out on a given night, with Williams likely rating as the preferable option against bigger lineups.

      Hornets' Marvin Williams to compete for power forward spot

      Hornets coach Steve Clifford has mentioned forward Marvin Williams as a possible candidate to start at power forward this season, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. With Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Al Jefferson in line to serve as the team's starting small forward and center, respectively, Williams, Cody Zeller, and rookie first-round pick Frank Kaminsky are expected to vie for the role at power forward. Williams' ability to play either forward spot should allow him to see a decent amount of minutes regardless of what occurs in training camp, but entering the season with a starting role in hand would certainly be a boon to his fantasy value. That said, Williams' value would likely remain confined to deeper formats, as he hasn't averaged more than 10 points per game since 2011-12 and provides marginal contributions in just about every other notable fantasy category.
