  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Pops for 17 points Monday

    Williams racked up 17 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes during Monday's 121-107 victory over Boston.

    Williams scored a season-high 17 points in the win -- the third time in his last four games in which he has ended with double digits. After a slow start to the season, he is beginning to creep into the standard league discussion. He has put up top-110 value over the past week, thanks to increased production on offense. While he is not a must-add player, managers looking for a player with a secure role could certainly do worse.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Set to play Friday

    Williams (ankle) said that he will play in Friday's game against the Magic, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Williams has yet to miss a game this season, and it doesn't appear that will change despite the fact that he rolled his ankle in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans. Through 15 games this season, Williams is averaging 9.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks across 25.1 minutes per contest.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Questionable vs. Magic

    Williams is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic due to a sprained right ankle.

    Williams remains in a low-usage role for Chicago, so even if he sits out, there won't be too many extra shots available. An absence could mean more minutes for Derrick Jones and Javonte Green.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Efficient despite loss

    Williams registered 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 126-103 loss to the Nuggets.

    Williams reached the 15-point mark for the second time this season, and while he's been struggling from the field at times, this was one of his most efficient performances of the season. It'd be a stretch to think he's going to score at this rate -- and with these levels of efficiency -- on a regular basis going forward, so fantasy managers must understand this outing is likely an outlier rather than the norm going forward. He's averaging 11.4 points but shooting 48.5 percent from the field in seven games during the current month.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Poor shooting in loss

    Williams chipped in 13 points (5-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 29 minutes during Sunday's 113-104 loss to Toronto.

    Williams missed seven of his eight first-quarter shot attempts, including five misses from within three feet of the basket. His seven rebounds matched his most in any game this season, and five of those boards came off the offensive glass. The 21-year-old has made 44.2 percent of his shots and 36.4 percent of his three-point tries and is averaging 8.9 points per game through the season's first 11 contests.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Continues scoring surge

    Williams posted 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 106-88 win over the Hornets.

    Williams posted a season-high in points and minutes, beating his previous high in points from Tuesday's game. Williams has seemed to find his aggression, although he will need to get to the line more often if he wants to start scoring at an even higher rate.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Posts best game of season

    Williams provided 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 108-99 victory over the Nets.

    Williams finished with season highs in shot attempts, made field goals, points, rebounds and blocks while playing 30-plus minutes for a second straight contest. This was a step in the right direction for the third-year forward, who missed the majority of last season due to injuries. However, there are still areas Williams can improve on, as he turned the ball over three times and failed to connect on a trio of three-point attempts. Regardless, the forward has scored in double figures in three of the last four games and appears to be getting more comfortable, which should lead to increased aggression on the offensive end.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Three steals in loss

    Williams closed Friday's 129-124 loss to the Spurs with 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, one assist and three steals in 20 minutes.

    Williams continues to be woeful on the offensive end, topping double digits for just the second time this season. Viewed as a possible breakout candidate, Williams has been unable to make the most of a favorable situation. Outside of some limited upside in steals, Williams should not be viewed as a viable asset in competitive formats.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Another subdued night Wednesday

    Williams totaled 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two assists and two steals over 15 minutes during Wednesday's 124-109 victory over the Pacers.

    Williams continues to disappoint, managing just 15 minutes in the victory. Seen as a potential asset this season, it would appear the hype was not justified. He is likely to remain a starter, but his passive mindset on the offensive end does not lend itself to fantasy upside. At this stage, managers are well within their rights to move on, with a view to keeping an eye on him in case things turn around at some point.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Struggles despite win

    Williams logged four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 116-108 win over the Heat.

    Williams' lack of production is alarming considering the absence of Zach LaVine (knee). The 2020 No. 4 pick is still more of a defensive option than a reliable scorer, as he has yet to average over 10 points per game. Williams was the only Bulls starter with a negative plus-minus at -4.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Awarded starting job

    Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Williams will start at power forward during Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Heat, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Donovan shuffled the starting power forward spot during the preseason, with Williams, Javonte Green and Derrick Jones all getting opportunities in the first five. However, the Bulls will stick with the third-year lottery pick, who's started 80 of his 88 NBA appearances, to begin the year. After a strong rookie season, Williams' second-year in the league was derailed by injuries, but now that he's fully healthy, he'll look to bounce back in a big way during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Tallies 22 points Tuesday

    Williams amassed 22 points (9-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal in 32 minutes in Tuesday's 127-104 win over Milwaukee.

    In his first start since the preseason opener, Williams produced his best overall game. After making just seven shots in his first three preseason contests, the 21-year-old made seven baskets in the first three quarters Tuesday. He started all 71 of his appearances in his rookie year but just nine of his 17 games last year as he battled wrist and shoulder injuries throughout the season. The Bulls have started Williams, Javonte Green and Derrick Jones at power forward in the preseason, and it's unclear who will get the nod when the regular season begins.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Coming off bench again

    Williams is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's preseason game against Toronto.

    The Bulls are experimenting with another new lineup in their third exhibition contest, and for the second straight game Williams will be utilized in a reserve role. Javonte Green got the nod at power forward Friday against Denver, while Derrick Jones will make the start Sunday night. At this stage, it's unclear if Williams will retain the starting job when the regular season rolls around, but the fact that he's failed to start two of three preseason games is not an overly positive indication.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Comes off bench Friday

    Williams came off the bench during Friday's 131-113 exhibition win over the Nuggets. He posted 11 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one block in 19 minutes.

    Joe Crowley of the Chicago Sun-Times notes that it's unclear if the change is permanent but expresses that he wouldn't be surprised if Javonte Green, who started Friday, sticks with the starters come Opening Night. Williams saw plenty of usage in Summer League (21.0 points on 19.3 shots in 34.3 minutes per game) but figures to remain a relatively low-usage option in the regular season. He's totaled 16 points in 36 preseason minutes.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Fourth-year option exercised

    The Bulls exercised Williams' $9.84 million team option for 2023-24 on Wednesday, Keith Smith of reports.

    Williams was limited to just 17 appearances in 2021-22 after undergoing wrist surgery last fall, but the 6-foot-7 forward showed enough promise over his first two NBA seasons for the Bulls to exercise his fourth-year option. In the Bulls' preseason opener Tuesday against the Pelicans, Williams started at power forward and finished with five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes. While all of Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic are all healthy, Williams will likely be limited to a low-usage role on offense, but his ability to convert efficiently from the field and offer solid contributions in the rebounds, blocks and steals categories makes him worthy of a late-round flier in most fantasy leagues.
