Williams posted 11 points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block over 32 minutes during Thursday's 122-113 win over the Raptors.
Williams has been a Swiss Army knife for the Bulls. The rookie is averaging 30.7 minutes per game over the last 10 games -- third-highest on the team and highest among the team's forwards. He's scored in double digits in five of the past six games. Williams' progression has been slow and steady, but if he continues to see these types of minutes, it wouldn't be a leap to say the production will rise.
Williams posted 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four steals, three rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Pacers.
The 19-year-old was only averaging 0.7 steals a game before Tuesday's stealing binge. Williams has started every game this season, averaging 9.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists with little else in 48 games this season. The rookie has been an inconsistent fantasy option all season, but he's still worth rostering in deep leagues for his low-end points, rebounds and assists.
Williams posted 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Suns.
The rookie has now scored in double figures in back-to-back games for the first time since early March. He continues to flash intriguing potential on the defensive end as well, racking up at least one steal or block in 21 of his last 23 games. Since the All-Star break, Williams is averaging 8.8 points, 5.0 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 blocks in 28.1 minutes.
Williams recorded 14 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block across 33 minutes in Monday's loss at Golden State.
Williams was coming off three straight games with six or fewer points, but he delivered an improved effort in this one while also tying his season-high mark for assists. He contributed across the board Monday, but it wouldn't be wise to expect double-digit scoring efforts from him on a nightly basis -- he has reached that mark just four times over his last 11 appearances.
Williams (shoulder) is available for Monday's game against the Jazz, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Williams was probable for Monday's game due to a left shoulder sprain, so it's not very surprising to see him active for the matchup. Williams totaled 10 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 34 minutes in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Williams is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jazz due to a sprained left shoulder.
Williams emerged from Sunday's win over Detroit with a minor shoulder injury, but it shouldn't affect his status for the second half of the back-to-back set. The rookie finished Sunday's game with 10 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.
Williams collected 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 14 rebounds and one assist in a 106-99 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
Williams was able to bounce back in the second game of a back-to-back set, picking up his third double-double of the season. Coming off a 1-for-9 shooting game, it was good to see the rookie shoot more efficiently and be more involved on the glass Wednesday. It has been a tough start to the second half of the season for Williams, as he has scored in double figures in only two of his first five games post All-Star break. On the year he is averaging 9.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
Williams totaled 23 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 27 minutes in Sunday's 118-95 win over the Raptors.
Williams continues to develop as a slashing sharpshooter, and he exhibited excellent effort in Sunday's win. The rookie's role has steadily increased throughout the season, and he continues to excel despite Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter's returns.
Williams and the Bulls won't play the Raptors on Sunday since the game was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Toronto doesn't have the minimum eight players available due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, leading to the postponement. The Bulls don't currently have any COVID-19 issues within the team, so they should face the Nuggets on Monday as scheduled.
Williams scored 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) to go along with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in Monday's win over the Rockets.
Williams has rebounded from a brief three-game slump to score in double digits in three of his last four contests. He shot the ball very well to reach that milestone Monday, hitting multiple threes for only the seventh time this season. Neither Otto Porter (back) nor Lauri Markkanen's (shoulder) return to the court appears imminent, meaning Williams should consistently see around 30 minutes for the time being.
Williams recorded 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds and three assists across 35 minutes in Saturday's 122-114 win over the Kings.
Williams recorded his second double-double of the season as he continues to start for the Bulls. The rookie's consistent presence puts him solidly in the conversation for Rookie of the Year, and Chicago's rebuilding effort appears to be in good hands with players like Williams on the roster. The eventual return of Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter may affect his production somewhat, but Williams has done more than enough to justify a large role in the offense.

Williams attempted a career-high 13 shots from the field, aided at least in part by the absence of both Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) and Otto Porter (back). He also took advantage of his increased role to grab double-digit rebounds for the first time in his career -- also leading to his first double-double. This performance continues what has been a very positive run for Williams, as he's averaging 13.8 points and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 52.9 percent from the field across his last five contests.

Williams remains inconsistent in his rookie season, though this was one of his more well-rounded performances of late. He had recorded only two rebounds combined across his last three games, though he bounced back to rack up a minimum of seven boards in a game for the fourth time in his career. Despite struggling from three-point range, Williams managed to score well and has now reached double figures in each of his last three contests.
Williams had 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Saturday's loss to Portland.
The rookie continues to be a fixture in the starting lineup, but he's not a viable fantasy commodity in most formats. Nonetheless, Williams has already flashed some potential as a scorer, shooter and defender, so he's a name to keep a closer eye on in dynasty formats. Over his last five games, Williams is averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 0.8 threes in 20.8 minutes.
Williams scored 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 31 minutes in Saturday's 101-90 loss to the Lakers.
After managing only 16 minutes Friday against the Hornets in his return from a one-game absence due to a hip injury, Williams nearly doubled up his playing time in the second half of a back-to-back set. The results were fairly strong, as he converted well around the basket and also connected on a pair of three-point shots. In addition, Williams also managed to match his career high with eight rebounds.
Williams (hip) will be available Friday against the Hornets.
As expected, Williams will play through a bruised right hip that caused him to miss the Bulls' most recent game. Over his past five appearances, he's averaging 10.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 29.3 minutes.
Williams (hip) is listed as probable for Friday's road game against the Hornets.
Williams wasn't able to play during Monday's loss to the Rockets, but it looks like he's on track to return Friday. The rookie is averaging 26.9 minutes through 13 games.
