Williamson mustered 37 points (15-28 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-11 FT), 15 rebounds and eight assists across 35 minutes in Friday's win over the Sixers.
Williamson was coming off a subpar performance the last time out, at least by his standards, when he shot just 4-for-12 en route to a 16-point effort against the Nets last Wednesday. He bounced back quickly here and recorded his third-best scoring output of the campaign. Williamson has scored at least 30 points in 14 games already this season and has taken over the role as the Pelicans' most reliable scoring threat given the way he's been playing this season. The former Duke standout has scored at least 25 points in 10 of his last 11 appearances as well.
Williamson notched 16 points (4-12 FG, 8-14 FT), six assists, four rebounds and two steals across 23 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Nets.
Williamson might have surpassed the 15-point mark for the 41st straight game while contributing in other categories, but he had a woeful night from the field, as he tied a season low in field goals made. Williamson also ended a 25-game streak with at least 20 points, but there's no question he remains the Pelicans' go-to player on offense. The second-year forward will attempt to bounce back Friday in another tough matchup against the 76ers at home.
Williamson (thumb) registered 34 points (12-18 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-10 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Hawks.
Williamson returned from a three-game absence and resumed his usual workload, carrying the Pelicans offensively while turning in his typically efficient scoring from the field. Expect him to work as the Pelicans' go-to player on offense moving forward, especially if Brandon Ingram (toe) continues to miss additional games.
Williamson (thumb) will return Tuesday against the Hawks, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports.
As expected, Williamson is making his return from a three-game absence due to a sprained right thumb. He's not expected to be on a minutes limit, and he could take on more offensive responsibilities with Brandon Ingram (toe) sidelined. In March, Williamson averaged 28.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 32.6 minutes.
Coach Stan Van Gundy said Williamson (thumb) "will probably" play in Tuesday's matchup against Atlanta, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
The Pelicans haven't announced anything definitive, but it looks like Williamson's streak of absences will end at three games. There's a good chance he's still dealing with the effects of his sprained thumb, but it's on his nondominant right hand, so it shouldn't dramatically affect his offensive game. The Pelicans are still expected to be without Brandon Ingram (toe), who is trending more toward doubtful, per Van Gundy.
Williamson (thumb) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game at Atlanta
The Pelicans continue to evaluate Williamson on a game-to-game basis as he battles a sprained right thumb that's already shelved him for the last three contests. Brandon Ingram (toe) is also questionable for the Pels, who were forced to start Jaxson Hayes and James Johnson at the forward spots Sunday in Houston.
Williamson (thumb) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rockets, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
It'll be the third straight absence for Williamson, who continues to battle a sprained right thumb. With Brandon Ingram (foot) and Josh Hart (thumb) both out, the Pels will once again be shorthanded in the frontcourt. In Friday's game against Atlanta, coach Stan Van Gundy rolled with Naji Marshall and James Johnson in the starting five.
Williamson (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rockets.
A sprained right thumb has caused Williamson to miss two straight games, but he could return Sunday. Brandon Ingram (toe) and Lonzo Ball (hip) are also questionable. DFS managers will have to keep an eye on the Pelicans as tipoff approaches.
Williamson (thumb) won't play Friday against the Hawks, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.
The 20-year-old will be sidelined for the second consecutive game after sustaining a sprained right thumb Monday against the Celtics. Brandon Ingram (toe), Lonzo Ball (hip) and Josh Hart (thumb) are also unavailable, so the Pelicans will be without four of their top rotation pieces Friday. Williamson's next chance to retake the court will come Sunday at Houston.
Williamson (thumb) will be held out of Thursday's game against Orlando.
Williamson sprained his thumb against the Celtics earlier in the week, and while he appears poised to play through the injury, the Pels will hold him out of at least one game as they enter a back-to-back set. It will be just the second missed game for the No. 1 pick in 2019 after he was limited to just 24 appearances as a rookie. The Pelicans will also be without Lonzo Ball (hip), while Brandon Ingram (foot) is considered doubtful.
Williamson suffered a sprained right thumb (off hand) during Monday's win over the Celtics. Initial fears were that he could miss multiple weeks, but ultimately it's possible he doesn't miss any time, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports. Williamson is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Magic.
While it sounds like Williamson is going to play through the injury, there's a chance the Pelicans could opt to play things safe. Any missed time for Williamson would likely result in Wes Iwundu, Josh Hart and/or James Johnson seeing more minutes.
Williamson played 31 minutes and finished with 28 points (11-22 FG, 6-9 FT), eight rebounds, four steals and three assists in Monday's victory over the Celtics.
With his 28 points, Williamson has now scored 20 or more in 24 straight games. Even more impressive is his streak of hitting 50 percent or more of his shots in 26 consecutive contests. Williamson is also making an impact on the defensive portion of the stat sheet, as he's collected a steal in six of his last seven outings.
Williamson posted 38 points (13-20 FG, 12-18 FT), six assists, five rebounds and a block across 35 minutes in Saturday's win over the Mavericks.
Williamson posted a career-high 39 points on Friday, and he ended just one point shy of tying that mark roughly 24 hours later. The former Duke star has been absolutely dominant in recent games, and he has scored at least 30 points in three of his last four contests. He also has scored at least 20 points in 23 games in a row.
Williamson notched 39 points (16-19 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a steal across 39 minutes in Friday's loss against the Nuggets.
Williamson missed just three shots en route to the highest-scoring performance of his young NBA career. These scoring exploits are nothing new for the former Duke star, as Williamson already reached the 30-point plateau in 11 games this season. He's doing more than just scoring, as Williamson has also recorded four double-doubles over his last 11 appearances -- a span in which he's also scored 23 or more points each time.
Williamson notched 27 points (9-13 FG, 9-10 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 128-111 win over the Lakers.
In the blowout win against the shorthanded Lakers, Williamson continued his 20-point scoring streak, elevating it to 21 games. Tuesday also marked the sixth game of Williamson's career in which he's posted at least nine rebounds and five assists. This month, heading into Tuesday's game, he had averaged 26.5 points on 15.8 shots, 6.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 32.1 minutes.
Williamson scored a game-high 30 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 11-14 FT) while adding six rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 113-108 win over the Nuggets.
The 20-year-old tied Brandon Ingram in scoring to lead the Pelicans, the first time Zion's hit for 30 or more since Feb. 25. Williamson's hardly been unproductive, though, averaging 25.6 points, 7.6 boards and 4.1 assists in the eight games between those performances. He continues to take on a larger role in the New Orleans offense, scoring at least 20 in 20 straight games and seeing his assists trend upward despite Sunday's showing in the category.
Williamson finished with 26 points (9-17 FG, 8-11 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocked shots and a steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's 101-93 loss to the Trail Blazers.
It was a frustrating two-game set for Williamson, who played excellent ball but left the series with two consecutive losses. He could have stolen the first game if his final jump shot had found the bottom of the cylinder, and this gutsy double-double wasn't enough to turn the tide in the second game. Still, there's nothing to fault in Williamson's current performance, and he remains an obvious, must-start in all formats.
Williamson finished with 28 points (11-17 FG, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, eight assists and one steal through 33 minutes during the 125-124 loss to Portland on Tuesday.
Williamson was dynamite, as usual, in the close loss Tuesday. The forward has lived up to expectations thus far, producing in more ways than just one. Williamson is not only efficient from the floor more nights than not, but he also dominates in the paint and he is a tremendous ball mover. He is averaging 25.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists through 32.6 minutes on the season and will continue to be a key producer for the Pelicans.
Williamson totaled 27 points (13-16 FG, 1-2 FT), five assists and two rebounds across 32 minutes in a 135-115 win over the Clippers on Sunday.
Williamson simply pushed Los Angeles around the rim, resulting in his 17th straight game with 20-plus points. The second-year star is shooting over 65 percent from the field over that stretch and ranks fourth in the league with his 61.9 field-goal percentage overall this season. Williamson doesn't offer much in the way of defensive stats or three-pointers, but his scoring (25.5 points per game) and efficient high-volume shooting make him a solid, though flawed, fantasy contributor.
Williamson had 23 points (9-16 FG, 5-6 FT) and six rebounds in just 18 minutes Friday night against the Cavs.
The game was out of hand early, so most of the Pelicans' regulars saw limited action on the second night of a back-to-back. Given the circumstances, Williamson still managed a solid fantasy line, topping 20 points for the 16th consecutive game, dating back to Feb. 6.
