  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Likely to play despite back issue

    Williams is probable for Friday's game against the 76ers due to low-back pain.

    Williams bounced back from back-to-back single-digit outings to notch 17 points versus the Bucks on Thursday. He's emerged from that contest with back soreness but should still suit up for the second night of Charlotte's current back-to-back set.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Strong showing off bench

    Williams accumulated 17 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block over 30 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 111-99 loss to the Bucks.

    After managing only nine total points in his prior two games combined, Williams bounced back with a productive night. The fifth-year big has seen his numbers pick up since being traded by the Mavericks, and through eight games with the Hornets, he's averaging 13.9 points, 4.9 boards, 2.1 threes and 1.9 assists in 28.1 minutes a contest.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Hits for 24 off bench

    Williams amassed 24 points (7-16 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists and one steal over 27 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 115-107 win over the Jazz.

    In his fourth game as a member of the Hornets, Williams posted big scoring numbers, although his lack of boards was curious. Since the deadline trade that brought him over from the Mavericks, the 25-year-old big is averaging 18.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 threes, 2.0 assists and 0.8 steals in 29.3 minutes a contest, and he's quickly become a big part of Charlotte's second unit.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Records double-double

    Williams ended Wednesday's 122-99 victory over the Hawks with 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

    It's only been three games off the bench, but there's no question Williams is having an excellent start to his Charlotte career, scoring at least 15 points in each of his outings and averaging a healthy 30.0 minutes per game in that role. Williams is proving to be valuable in several formats due to his workload off the bench, but it remains to be seen if he'll maintain this workload in the coming weeks.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Promising start in Charlotte

    Williams contributed 21 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one block over 31 minutes during Monday's 111-102 victory over the Pacers.

    Williams has compiled 41 points across two contests with the Hornets thus far. His scoring Saturday was fueled by knocking down three triples, and he displayed a knack for getting to the free-throw line Monday. He adds a physical two-way presence to Charlotte's frontcourt.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Nears double-double in team debut

    Williams recorded 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and one assist over 32 minutes during Saturday's 115-106 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Williams made his debut with Charlotte after being dealt by Dallas at the trade deadline, ending with a team-high rebound total while ending two boards shy of a double-double and as one of four Hornets players with 15 or more points in a winning effort. Williams has tallied at least 15 points in eight games this season, adding eight or more rebounds in three of those outings.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Set to debut Saturday

    Williams (recently traded) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    After being acquired from the Mavericks on Thursday, Williams sat out Friday's loss to Milwaukee but will be available to make his Hornets debut for the second leg of a back-to-back set. However, given that Williams hasn't practiced with the team, it's unclear if he'll hold a sizable role out of the gate.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Won't debut Friday

    Williams (recently traded) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Williams was traded from the Mavericks to the Hornets ahead of Thursday's deadline, but the deal is still pending ahead of Friday's matchup. It's unclear whether he'll join his new team in time for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Sent to Charlotte

    The Hornets acquired Williams, Seth Curry and a 2027 first-round pick from the Mavericks on Thursday in exchange for P.J. Washington and two second-round picks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Mere months after signing a four-year, $53.3 million deal with the Mavericks, Williams has been shipped off to the Hornets. There's a solid chance he joins Charlotte's starting five, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to take on heavy usage while he shares the court with Miles Bridges, Brandon Miller and eventually, LaMelo Ball (ankle).

  • Mavericks' Grant Williams: Contributions continue off bench

    Williams recorded 14 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block over 28 minutes during Monday's 118-102 win over the 76ers.

    Williams rejoined the second unit after six consecutive starts while Kyrie Irving (thumb) was sidelined, with the latter returning to action Monday. Williams has been a volatile scorer, but his size in the frontcourt should secure a healthy role in the Mavericks' rotation for defensive purposes.

  • Mavericks' Grant Williams: Back to bench

    Williams won't start Monday's game against the 76ers, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    With Kyrie Irving (thumb) sidelined, Williams drew six straight starts. However, the former will be back in action Monday, sending the latter to his usual reserve role. In 12 games as a reserve this season, Williams has averaged 5.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20.7 minutes per game.

  • Mavericks' Grant Williams: Has special night in loss

    Williams ended Saturday's 120-115 loss to the Kings with 27 points (9-16 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across 38 minutes.

    With the Mavericks down three rotation players in Kyrie Irving (thumb), Dante Exum (knee) and Derrick Jones (wrist), Williams drew another start and caught fire from beyond the arc. He entered Saturday's contest having failed to exceed two made three-pointers in a game since Dec. 23, but thanks to his hot shooting display Saturday, Williams secured a new career-high scoring total. Despite the strong shooting performance to go along with the defensive production, Williams will likely see a significant drop in usage if Irving is back in action Monday against Orlando, and a steady drop in playing time if either or both of Jones and Exum are back for that contest.

  • Mavericks' Grant Williams: Ejected Wednesday

    Williams was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Suns after being assessed his second technical foul, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Williams will finish the contest with eight points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt), a rebound and an assist across 11 minutes. In his absence, expect Maxi Kleber and Tim Hardaway to see more minutes. Williams' next chance to play will come Friday at Atlanta.

  • Mavericks' Grant Williams: Starting Wednesday

    Williams will start Wednesday's game against the Suns.

    Williams will make his first start since Dec. 28 in place of Kyrie Irving (thumb). In 27 starts this season, Williams is averaging 9.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists.
