Williams scored 25 points (10-20 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-9 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds and two assists in the loss Wednesday to Westchester. Williams was the one redeeming offensive weapon for South Bay, scoring just over a fourth of the team's total points. The 23-year-old forward is averaging 19.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 blocks through 12 games this season.
Williams registered 24 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in the loss Thursday to Salt Lake City. Williams has seen minutes with the Lakers and the team's G League affiliate in the past three weeks, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the center dominated his opposition Thursday. He's unlikely to see a ton of minutes on any given night in the G League considering Williams could be soak up time at the NBA level, but when he's playing he is certainly a relevant fantasy asset in most formats.
Coach Luke Walton said that Williams will "definitely get some more minutes" Wednesday against the Suns, Kyle Goon of the Southern California New Group reports. Williams turned in a strong performance on Monday, posting eight points, four rebounds and three blocks in just 14 minutes. With Brandon Ingram suspended, it seems as though Williams will look to fill some of the void left with his absence.
Williams posted eight points (4-5 FG, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, three blocks and one assist over 14 minutes during Monday's overtime loss to San Antonio. Williams saw most of his playing time down the stretch after JaVale McGee fouled out of the game. This likely wouldn't have even happened in the first place had Brandon Ingram not been suspended by the league for four games, but the 23-year-old rookie out of Gonzaga capitalized during the unexpected opportunity and made a decent case for more playing time at the end of the Lakers' rotation.
Williams was waived by the Lakers on Saturday. Williams was an early camp invite, being signed in late July. He'll look to continue his profession career likely in the G-League or overseas.
