Hornets' Mark Williams: Undergoes thumb surgery
The Hornets announced Wednesday that Williams underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb.
Williams missed most of March due to the thumb issue but suited up for six of the Hornets' final eight games. He's expected to make a full recovery ahead of training camp and should be back in time for the start of the 2023-24 season, when he'll likely settle back in as Charlotte's top center. In 17 appearances as a starter during his rookie campaign, Williams averaged 11.6 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks across 26.9 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Ends season with career day
Williams logged 22 points (9-10 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 30 minutes during Sunday's 106-95 win over the Cavaliers.
Due to ankle and thumb injuries, and the Hornets being well out of the playoff picture, Williams played in only six of the last 14 games of the season. However, he capped the year with one of his best performances. The 22-point game was his best of the season, coupled with 10 rebounds for his 11th double-double. The Hornets' center also blocked multiple shots in a game for the first time since Feb. 15. Williams ended his rookie year averaging 9.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game, but he played in just 43 contests over the season.... See More ... See Less

Williams (ankle) is starting Friday against the Rockets.
Williams was probable for Friday's matchup, so it isn't very surprising to see him available following a one-game absence. Over his last three starts, he's averaged 12.0 points and 12.0 rebounds in 31.3 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Probable Friday
Williams (ankle) is probable for Friday's game against the Rockets.
Williams sat out Tuesday against Toronto due to his ankle injury, but he'll likely be able to return to the court against the Rockets. Over his last four appearances, he's averaged 12.3 points and 11.0 rebounds in 28.8 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Officially out
Williams (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
As expected, Williams will not suit up for Tuesday's game after initially being doubtful for the contest. Considering the Hornets will be without all five starters, both Nick Richards and Kai Jones should be in line for massive workloads. Williams will have another chance to take the floor Friday against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Receives downgrade to doubtful
Williams (ankle) is now considered doubtful to take the floor Tuesday versus the Raptors.
After initially receiving a probable tag, it appears his ankle issue has taken a downward turn overnight, and the big man will likely sit out Tuesday's game. Williams has just two more chances to return to action before the regular season concludes, but his expected absence Tuesday should result in more minutes for Nick Richards and Kai Jones....

Hornets' Mark Williams: Probable to play Tuesday
Williams (ankle) is probable to face the Raptors on Tuesday.
Williams might have picked up the injury during Sunday's loss to the Raptors when he recorded a 15-point, 12-rebound double-double, but the probable tag means the injury isn't likely to be serious. Barring any unexpected setback, Williams has a strong shot at being available and in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against Toronto.... See More ... See Less

Williams closed with 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-1 FT) and 12 rebounds in 27 minutes during Sunday's 128-108 loss to Toronto.

Hornets' Mark Williams: Starting against Toronto
Williams is starting against the Raptors on Sunday.
Williams is coming off a poor performance against Chicago on Friday, but he did see 35 minutes. With the Hornets missing so many players, we could see all three of Williams, Nick Richards and Kai Jones on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Mediocre performance in return
Williams finished with six points (3-6 FG), eight rebounds, one block and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 121-91 loss to the Bulls.
In the unusual game-to-game center rotation being implemented in Charlotte, it was Williams' turn to start Friday night, and he produced some solid defensive numbers as usual. His usage is still lacking on the offensive end, though. The rookie had begun to put up double-digit shot attempts toward the end of February, but that was short-lived. Fantasy managers are likely more frustrated with the revolving door situation at this team's center spot, which is likely to last the remainder of the season.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: In starting five Friday
Williams will start Friday's game versus the Bulls.
Williams' return to the starting five seemed likely once it was reported he wasn't on the injury report. Nick Richards will shift back to the bench in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Not listed on injury report
Williams is not listed on the Hornets' injury report ahead of Friday's game against Chicago.
The rookie big man was rested for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, but he'll be back in the mix -- and perhaps in the starting lineup -- as the Hornets play out the string on a lost season. Coach Steve Clifford previously divulged that he'll rotate his young centers down the stretch, so expect either Nick Richards or Kai Jones to be held out of Friday's game. Given that Richards did not play in Sunday's game against Dallas, Jones is the most likely rest candidate.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Will sit out Tuesday
Williams will sit out Tuesday's game against the Thunder, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
Head coach Steve Clifford will be rotating his three centers for the remainder of the season, so Williams, Nick Richards and Kai Jones will likely take turns getting a day off. With Williams taking his turn Tuesday against the Thunder, we can expect to see him back on the floor for Friday's matchup versus the Bulls.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Double-double in Sunday's win
Williams notched 15 points (5-9 FG, 5-7 FT), 16 rebounds and one assist over 32 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 win over the Mavericks.
After coming off the bench Friday in his return from a thumb injury, Williams was back in the starting five and came through with his eighth double-double of the year, as well as his biggest performance on the glass since he ripped down 20 boards against the Heat in late February. The rookie center figures to remain productive over the final weeks of the season as long as he can stay healthy.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Starting against Dallas
Williams is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Mavericks,
Williams had settled as the Hornets' starting center after the trade deadline and will recover his regular spot now that the thumb injury he was dealing with is a thing of the past. Williams is averaging 10.7 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks across 25.6 minutes per game in 12 starts this season.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mark Williams: Fares well in return
Williams (thumb) came off the bench and generated 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes Friday in the Hornets' 117-109 win over the Mavericks.
Williams had started in each of the Hornets' 12 games following the trade deadline, but he was deployed off the bench Friday, likely as a means for the Hornets to manage his minutes better coming off a six-game absence due to a thumb sprain. The rookie ended up seeing a smaller share of the playing-time split at center with starter Nick Richards (10 points, 11 rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes), but expect the minutes to be distributed more equally -- if not tilt back in Williams' favor -- in the games to come. Even if both Williams and Richards maintain around 24 minutes per game apiece for the rest of the season, it would likely be enough for both to have relevance in 12-team category leagues for managers prioritizing field-goal percentage, rebounds and blocks....
