  • Williams (knee) said that he recently began light walking for the first time since undergoing surgery Sept. 25 to repair a torn meniscus, Jorge Sierra of Hoops Hype reports. Williams is in the very early stages of his recovery from the right knee procedure, which is expected to carry a six-month recovery timetable. Given that he could be behind the curve from a conditioning standpoint once he's cleared for full basketball activity at some point in the second half, Williams isn't a lock to see any run before the regular season draws to a close in April. With that in mind, Williams probably won't warrant much interest in single-season leagues and is likely only worth keeping tabs of in deeper dynasty settings.

  • Williams underwent surgery Monday to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee and is expected to return to full basketball activity in roughly six months. Williams' six-month timetable puts a rough estimate for a return around late March, which is nearly the entire season. While he certainly could return earlier than expected depending on how quickly the recovery process goes, the fact that he's going to miss so much time means he'll likely be nothing more than a late season flier for fantasy owners. With Williams sidelined, look for Alex Len to get the majority of the backup minutes behind Tyson Chandler at center.

  • Suns' Alan Williams: Suffers partially torn meniscus

    Williams' initial diagnosis has revealed he suffered a partially torn meniscus, Chris Haynes of reports. Williams' timetable for return likely won't be determined until after his MRI on Saturday, though it's safe to assume he'll be out an extended period. As a result, other big men on the team such as Alex Len, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could all see additional time at center. Though, the actual rotation at the position will probably be hammered out during training camp and the preseason.

  • Suns' Alan Williams: To undergo MRI Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams suffered an injury while landing on a teammate's foot during a workout Friday and will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the extent of the damage, Chris Haynes of reports. While the full extent of Williams' injury is yet to be determined, the fact that the Suns have decided an MRI is necessary doesn't bode particularly well. The big man notably ended 2016-17 on a high note, posting 11.4 points and 9.1 rebounds across 22.6 minutes per game after the All-Star break. If he's out for an extended period, Alex Len is likely the immediate candidate to absorb Williams' minutes. Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could also see time at center in smaller, quicker lineups.

  • Suns' Alan Williams: Agrees to stay in Phoenix
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams agreed to a three-year, $17 million deal Monday with the Suns, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Williams didn't end up playing much of a role in Phoenix last year until the final few months of the regular season, but when he got extended playing time, the 24-year-old began to flourish. In the end, Williams posted 13 double-doubles over the last two months of the regular season, which included a stretch of five straight to open up the month of March. With that, Williams has earned himself a nice pay day, and depending on what happens with fellow frontcourt player Alex Len, Williams could see an extended role to open up next season.
