Rockets' Lou Williams: Won't play Thursday vs. Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams won't be available to play in Thursday's game against the Pelicans, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Williams was traded to the Rockets on Tuesday in exchange for Corey Brewer and a draft pick, but it appears the Rockets will give him some extra time to get settled in and will hold him out Thursday. The Rockets fully expect Williams to take part in practice Friday and then make his debut with the team on Saturday against the Timberwolves. With Williams sitting out and Brewer no longer in the fold, Eric Gordon will have to play a huge role off the bench, while Sam Dekker could also temporarily get some extra run.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Unlikely to make team debut Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is unlikely to make his Rockets debut Thursday against the Pelicans, ESPN.com's Calvin Watkins reports.

The Rockets acquired Williams from the Lakers late Tuesday in exchange for Corey Brewer and an unprotected 2017 first-round pick, but due to the timing of physical with his new team, it doesn't look like coach Mike D'Antoni is planning on having the veteran guard at his disposal right away. Look for Williams to instead make his Rockets debut against the Timberwolves on Saturday, when he's expected to combine with sixth man Eric Gordon to form a potent offensive backcourt duo on the second unit. With 18.6 points and 17.2 points per game, respectively, Williams and Gordon are the top two bench scorers in the NBA this season.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Traded to Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams has been traded to the Rockets for Corey Brewer and a 1st round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

The veteran shooting guard had been rumored to be on the block, as the Lakers were looking to acquire assets and build for the future. Williams was averaging 18.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 2.1 triples across 24.2 minutes per game off the bench for the Lakers. He will presumably see a similar role with the Rockets providing a spark with the second unit, but it's unclear at this time if he will see as many minutes, as Brewer saw just 15.9 per game with the club. The Rockets style of play makes sense in theory for Williams, and he should make a relatively smooth transition in with the team. If he can ultimately see 20-to-25 minutes per game he holds value in standard leagues for those in need of triples, as he will certainly have the green light in Houston.

Lakers' Lou Williams: Scores 29 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted 29 points (10-18 FG, 4-11 3pt, 5-5 FT), five assists, two steals, a rebound and. block over 24 minutes in Tuesday's 97-96 loss to the Kings.

Arguably the NBA's most prolific sixth man, Williams outpaced all of the starters and led the Lakers in scoring. Almost one-third of the Lakers' total output came from him in a messy, low-scoring matchup that ended with Williams missing an open 3-point shot at the buzzer to give the Kings the victory. The Lakers are struggling to build a cohesive lineup, and it's confounding that their leading scorer is someone off the bench. Williams is averaging 18.4 points per game, with D"Angelo Russell and Nick Young trailing with 14.2 and 14.0 points per game respectively. While some of the starters will pop with an occasional standout game, Williams is the only Laker who provides consistent production. The Lakers face the Suns on Wednesday and with Phoenix ranking 22nd in defense versus shooting guards this season, Williams is primed for another big game.

Lakers' Lou Williams: Paces second unit with 21 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams registered 21 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 8-9 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 19 minutes in a 122-114 win over the Bucks on Friday.

The Lakers have been at full health in the backcourt for a couple weeks now with D'Angelo Russell having since returned from a calf injury, but Williams hasn't slowed down despite regularly seeing less than 25 minutes in games. He's been on a heater since mid-January, tallying at least 15 points in 12 straight contests while shooting 47.7 percent from the field and chipping in 3.7 assists, 2.8 boards and 2.8 three-pointers per game. That surge in production has bolstered Williams' case for the Sixth Man of the Year award, an honor he previously claimed in 2014-15.
