Williams finished with a season-high 21 points (7-8 FG, 5-6 3PT) and five rebounds in 29 minutes Monday against Detroit. The Hornets hit 10 threes as a team and Williams accounted for five of those, as he continues his torrid three-point shooting of late. The 31-year-old has hit at least three three-pointers in each of the last three games, and he's racked up 18 made threes in six games since the calendar turned to January.
Williams provided 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three steals and one assist across 27 minutes during a 99-88 win over the Jazz on Friday. Williams chipped in with a nice all-around effort in the win. The three steals matched a season high and he stayed hot from beyond the arc. Across the last four games, Williams is shooting 10-of-19 from three-point land. He's been inconsistent this season, but if he starts putting on performances like this more often, his value will trend up quickly.
Williams managed 15 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 32 minutes in Friday's 109-104 loss to the Bucks. Williams' rebound total was his second-best of the campaign and highest since Oct. 29 versus the Magic. The veteran big man has turned in double-digit scoring efforts in six of his last nine contests overall and has done so with some efficient shooting. Williams has taken double-digit shot attempts in only two of those contests, but he's maximized his opportunities by posting a success rate of 45.5 percent or greater from the floor in six of them. While the 31-year-old's offensive contributions tends to go through a fair share of ups and downs, he continues to be a reliable source of rebounds for owners in all formats.
Williams scored 16 points (6-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding six rebounds, two steals and a block in 32 minutes during Friday's 105-100 loss to the Heat. Seven different Charlotte players scored in double digits on the night, with Williams leading the way, but the balanced approach on offense couldn't make up for the absence of Kemba Walker (shoulder). Williams scored just eight total points over the previous two games, so while he's certainly capable of occasional performances like this, his inconsistency makes him a risky fantasy option.
Williams amassed a season-high 17 points (5-7 3PT) and eight rebounds in a 100-99 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. Williams was clearly feeling his shot in this game, as the five makes and seven takes from three both marked season-highs. He's been much better all month actually, as he's averaging 10 points a game in November after scoring just 7.1 points per game in October. Neither of those are good enough to be fantasy relevant though, as he's yet to take more than 10 shots in any game this season.
