Carter-Williams finished with 20 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three boards, and two steals in 25 minutes of a 120-115 win against Memphis on Tuesday. Carter-Williams reached double figures in scoring for the fourth straight game while continuing to play a large role in his team's second unit. It was an especially efficient game from the floor for the veteran guard as he shot above 50 percent for the third straight game.
Carter-Williams compiled 16 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block across 27 minutes Sunday in the Magic's 126-106 win over the Rockets. Carter-Williams picked up a few extra minutes thanks to the Magic having the game in hand after three quarters, but the reserve guard played a big part in the team's early success, too. The historically inefficient Carter-Williams was effective both from the field and from the charity stripe, allowing him to reach double figures in scoring for the third straight game. Carter-Williams should benefit from a temporary boost in usage while Evan Fournier (elbow) is sidelined, making him someone to keep an eye on in 14-team leagues or deeper.
Carter-Williams tallied 17 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes during Friday's 132-118 victory over Minnesota. Carter-Williams scored a season-high 17 points, making the most of what could be a sneaky period of relevance. With Evan Fournier (elbow) sidelined indefinitely, Carter-Williams could see his playing time increase, making him someone to watch in standard formats. The scoring is typically underwhelming, but he does have the ability to rack up defensive numbers and provides solid rebound numbers from the point guard position.
Carter-Williams supplied 12 points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six assists, three steals, two blocks and one rebound in 24 minutes in Wednesday's 116-100 loss to the Celtics. Carter-Williams stepped up with starter Markelle Fultz struggling in the tough matchup versus Boston. With D.J. Augustin (knee) still out, Carter-Williams has logged over 20 minutes in five straight games and has scored double-digit points three times during this stretch. Augustin isn't expected back until after the All-Star break, keeping Carter-Williams as the Magic's backup point guard for the foreseeable future. Next, the former rookie-of-the-year will face a soft Knicks' defense Thursday night.
Carter-Williams recorded 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists and seven rebounds over 23 minutes in Sunday's 112-97 loss to the Clippers. Not much went right for the Magic in the double-digit loss, but Carter-Williams was one of the few exceptions. The 2013 first-round pick paced Orlando in both scoring and assists, despite coming off the bench. He's not a candidate to crack the starting five anytime soon, but Carter-Williams should continue to push for around 20 minutes a game while D.J. Augustin (knee) is likely sidelined for at least another couple of weeks. Carter-Williams might eventually become someone worth looking at in 12-team leagues, but he's more of a deep-league entity at this time.
