Williams pitched in eight points (3-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, six assists, and five steals in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 112-103 loss to the Warriors. Williams matched his career high in steals while turning in a complete stat line in the season finale. The 24-year-old rookie forward wasn't drafted, but that didn't stop him from making a name for himself over the last two-plus months as a versatile and capable two-way contributor.
Williams logged 23 minutes and finished with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in Sunday's 130-102 loss to the Lakers. Williams became a trendy waiver-wire pickup in early February on the strength of a few quality performances in a row, but the bloom appears to be off the rose now. He's failed to reach double figures in the scoring column over the past six games while shooting a wretched 27.9 percent from the floor and averaging 6.3 boards, 2.3 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.0 triples in 29.2 minutes over that stretch.
Williams went for eight points (3-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 40 minutes during Monday's 129-125 overtime win against the Mavericks. Williams swiped at least three steals for the third time in the last 13 games and grabbed double-digit boards for the fourth time this season. Moreover, the rookie forward earned a career high minute total and has seen at least 30 minutes in 16 of his last 23 appearances.
Williams amassed nine points (3-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), five rebounds, five steals, and four assists in 29 minutes during Friday's 127-104 loss to the Raptors. Williams finished with a career high in steals while filling up the stat sheet across multiple categories. The Pelicans have slotted Williams in at both forward spots and he continues to showcase his versatility on both ends of the court. With a large share of his shot attempts coming from beyond the arc, his overall field goal percentage typically suffers. Nevertheless, Williams is clearly one of the players that the team is funneling minutes toward down the stretch this season, and that's highly unlikely to change.
Williams went for 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 114-104 loss to the Jazz. Williams matched Julius Randle for the team high in minutes and snapped a five-game streak of single-digit scoring. The 24-year-old rookie reached double figures in five of six games from Jan. 30 to Feb. 9, but hasn't been able to accomplish that in eight of 10 thereafter. Still, Williams has shown potential on both ends of the floor and continues to earn a lot of minutes. As a result, he may remain a decent option for deeper leagues while receiving a value boost in daily leagues on nights that Anthony Davis is held out.
