Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Nearing return
Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault said Tuesday that Williams (COVID-19 protocols) is "close" to rejoining the team and could be available at some point during the remaining three games of Oklahoma City's road trip, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
Since Williams has been out since Jan. 10 after entering the protocols, he'll more than likely need to get in at least one practice before the Thunder clear him to play. With that in mind, Williams looks safe to rule out for Wednesday's game in San Antonio, even if he happens to clear protocols earlier that day. Friday's game in Charlotte or Saturday's game in Cleveland could represent more realistic targets for Williams' return.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Enters COVID-19 protocols
Williams has been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against the Wizards after being placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
Unless he can test out of the protocols, Williams will likely miss at least two games. Over his last five games, Williams averaged 21.2 minutes per game, so his absence could result in the likes of Aleksej Pokusevski, Aaron Wiggins and Darius Bazley picking up a few extra minutes....

Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Available Friday
Williams (ankle) is available for Friday's game against the Knicks, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
Williams sustained a right ankle sprain in Wednesday's loss to the Suns but will be available against New York. He's averaged 5.2 points and 4.0 rebounds in 18.6 minutes per game across his last five appearances.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Listed as questionable
Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Knicks, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
Williams suffered a sprained right ankle during Wednesday's loss to the Suns and is officially questionable heading into Friday's contest. The 26-year-old has been a reliable contributor off the bench this season, averaging 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 20.5 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Suffers ankle sprain
Williams sustained a right ankle sprain during Wednesday's 115-97 loss to the Suns, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
Williams had zero points (0-1 3Pt), one rebound and two assists in seven minutes before going down with the injury. The severity of the issue is unclear, and he should be considered questionable for Friday's matchup with the Knicks until has status is updated.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Underwhelming performance Saturday
Williams finished Saturday's 104-103 victory over the Clippers with four points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), seven rebounds and one assist over 22 minutes.
Williams was unable to move the fantasy needle Saturday, registering an underwhelming performance. His role is locked in as an energy guy off the bench, something that typically sits well with his skill set. While he is rarely one to put up exaggerated numbers, this was below his best and so for those in deeper formats, he remains a backend option on most nights.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Well-rounded bench performance
Williams notched nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and four steals in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 110-109 win over Toronto.
Williams led the Thunder in bench minutes, coming on and having a tangible impact once again. As is typically his fashion, Williams contributed on both ends of the floor, willing the Thunder to victory. His role figures to hover around 20 minutes on most nights, all but ruling him out as a reliable 12-team asset. However, those in deeper formats should certainly give him a look as a solid plug-and-play option.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Erupts defensively
Williams collected 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists, two blocks and four steals over 27 minutes during Monday's 114-103 victory over Detroit.
Williams set season highs in steals and blocks, en route to recording an awesome plus-22 in the box score. He hadn't recorded a block since early November and he's unlikely to have enough of an offensive role to buoy his fantasy value outside of extremely deep leagues. He's best regarded as a streamer if the Thunder are ever shorthanded.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Not on injury report
Williams (ankle) is not on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Pistons.
Williams was able to go through a full practice Saturday, and he's now been cleared to return from a three-game absence. Prior to the injury, Williams was locked into consistent run off the bench, but he wasn't seeing enough minutes -- 18.8 MPG over his last 10 games -- to warrant much fantasy attention....

Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Practices Saturday
Williams (ankle) practiced Saturday, Steve McGehee of News 9 Oklahoma City reports.
Williams has been sidelined over the past three games due to an ankle injury, but it appears that he's on track to return Monday against the Pistons. In November, he averaged 6.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 20.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Out at least a week
Williams (ankle) is expected to miss at least a week, Rylan Stiles of Locked On Thunder reports.
Williams' ankle will keep him out of Monday's game at Houston, and coach Mark Daigneault has already ruled him out of Wednesday's rematch back in Oklahoma City. The Thunder also play Thursday at Memphis, so Williams will almost certainly miss that contest as well, meaning his return won't come any sooner than next Monday's game at Detroit. With Williams out, Daigneault said Isaiah Roby will be in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Won't play Monday
Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Houston.
Williams sustained an ankle injury in Friday's narrow loss to the Wizards, and he was unable to return to the contest. Josh Giddey and Aleksej Pokusevski will likely see increased playing time.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Will not return
Williams will not return to Friday's game against the Wizards due to an ankle injury, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
The severity of Williams' ankle injury is unknown at this time. He will have a couple days to recover, as the Pelicans do not play again until Monday's matchup with the Rockets.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Goes scoreless in Wednesday's win
Williams didn't score (0-1 FG, 0-2 FT) but had two rebounds and two assists across 18 minutes during Wednesday's 101-89 victory over Houston.
Williams battled to get anything going in the win, ending with no offensive production to speak of. Despite the fact he does have a reasonably consistent role and can chip in across the board, he simply isn't doing enough with his playing time to warrant rostering him in anything but the deepest fantasy league....

Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Scores 12 points in Friday's loss
Williams accumulated 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one block in 22 minutes during Friday's 124-91 loss to the Rockets.
Williams played meaningful minutes off the bench as the Thunder were soundly beaten once again. This could be a bit of a theme moving forward and certainly makes playing time hard to project. Williams can put up numbers across the board when he is on the court. Unfortunately, it appears as though the young core is going to get the first crack on most nights, meaning Williams should only be looked at in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Cleared for season opener
Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault said Sunday that Williams (toe) will "slot right in" to the rotation when the team begins its regular season Wednesday in Utah, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
Williams missed all four of the Thunder's preseason games with a toe injury, but he practiced fully Sunday and looks like he'll be ready to go for the start of the season. Daigneault is committed to carving out a role for Williams off the bench, but the fourth-year player may have difficulty achieving fantasy relevance while Oklahoma City is at full strength. Williams appeared in 66 games in 2020-21, averaging 8.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.8 three-pointers in 21.6 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
