Hawks' Lou Williams: Efficient shooting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-3 FT), six assists and two rebounds in 17 minutes of action in Sunday's 124-95 win against the Rockets.

While Williams hasn't received much playing time recently, the guard was able to make the most out of the minutes he had Sunday, notching a month-high six assists. Expect the guard to continue to receive limited minutes going into the playoffs.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will come off the bench for Friday's contest against the 76ers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Tony Snell is entering the starting five, so Williams will resume his sixth-man role. This month, he's averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 24.0 minutes.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Comes up short of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored 10 points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding eight rebounds, five assists and one steal over 31 minutes in Wednesday's 127-83 loss to the 76ers.

Williams tied Clint Capela for a team-high eight boards, but there weren't many other positives to be found. Had it not been for his six successful free throws, Williams' night could have been much more forgettable. Still, it was a decent return after he missed a game to illness. Williams has now scored in double figures in each of his last five games.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will start Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.

With a number of regulars, including Bogdan Bogdanovic (hamstring), Trae Young (ankle) and Kevin Huerter (shoulder), all out, Williams will move into the lineup for his first start since joining the Hawks at the deadline. The veteran should be set for increased minutes after missing Monday's game with an illness.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Not listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (illness) is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.

As expected, the veteran will be available after a minor, non-COVID-19 illness kept him out of Monday night's loss to Detroit. With Trae Young (ankle) out, Kevin Huerter (shoulder) doubtful and Brandon Goodwin (ankle) questionable, Williams could be set for a decent bump in minutes Wednesday night.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Expected to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (illness) is expected to play Wednesday against the 76ers, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

General manager Travis Schlenk said that Williams, who missed Monday's loss to the Pistons due to flu-like symptoms, was feeling better when the team flew to Philadelphia later in the evening. Williams could be looking at a fairly heavy workload if he is indeed available, given that the Atlanta backcourt is decimated by injuries at the moment.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was ruled out for Monday's game at Detroit with flu-like symptoms, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

The 34-year-old could have enjoyed an expanded workload in the continued absence of Trae Young (ankle), but the Hawks will instead be down another guard. Kris Dunn (ankle) is probable to make his season debut Monday, which could help cover Williams' absence.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Could have expanded role sans Young
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is averaging 13.0 points, 4.0 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 1.7 three-pointers in 23.3 minutes per game over the Hawks' last three contests.

The Hawks have been without Trae Young (ankle) for their last two games, with Williams putting up 13 and 15 points in wins over the Heat and Bucks during that span. Young appears unlikely to make it back at any point during the Hawks' upcoming four-game week, so Williams and Brandon Goodwin should both be in line for expanded profiles out of the backcourt. Williams looks like a decent streaming option in weekly leagues for fantasy managers looking for aid in points, three-pointers, assists and free-throw percentage.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Scores 22 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams managed 22 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 8-9 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 112-96 win over the Magic.

Williams' 22 points were his highest mark since joining the Hawks and his highest mark overall since he scored 30 points in a start on Valentine's Day. He's provided a spark off the bench for the Hawks, and Tuesday's performance broke a three-game single-digit scoring stretch.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Turns in 13 points from bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four assists and a rebound across 29 minutes in Sunday's 105-101 win over the Hornets.

Williams is no stranger to logging significant minutes in a reserve role, as the veteran has made a living as one of the best sixth-men in the game. It appears that he's continuing that trend in his return to Atlanta. Since joining the Hawks, Williams has averaged 12.5 points, 3.7 assists and 2.0 rebounds across six games. His total on Sunday will give those numbers a boost.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Scores 19 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 30 minutes during Friday's 126-103 win over the Pelicans.

The 34-year-old bounced back from a dreadful seven-point performance last Thursday to record one of his best all-around performances of the season. Williams saw a boost in playing time with Trae Young (knee) out with a sore knee, so don't read too much into Friday's 30 minutes. Still, the 16-year guard should be a reliable source of points along with low-end assists and three-pointers for the fifth-seed Hawks the rest of the way.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Available to debut with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is available to debut with the Hawks on Thursday, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

Williams will play in his first game with Atlanta after being acquired at the trade deadline. The 34-year-old should have a decent role off the bench, though he likely won't play big minutes.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Still out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (recently traded) will not debut Tuesday against the Suns, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

Williams is with the team in Phoenix, but he's not yet ready to see the floor. His next chance to play arrives Thursday against the Spurs.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Won't debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (recently traded) will not play Sunday against the Nugget.

Williams is not yet with the Hawks, so he won't play Sunday. He's expected to join the team in Phoenix ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Suns, per Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (recently traded) will not play Friday against the Warriors, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

As expected, Williams will not play in the Hawks' first game after the trade deadline. However, it sounds like there's optimism regarding his availability for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

Hawks' Lou Williams: Dealt to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams, along with two second-round picks and cash, was traded to the Hawks from the Clippers on Thursday for Rajon Rondo, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Williams has seen his minutes decline to 21.9 per game this season -- his lowest mark since his second year in the league (2006-07). In joining the Hawks, he could play backup point guard and third shooting guard behind Trae Young, Kevin Huerter and Bogdan Bogdanovic. His fantasy value probably won't change significantly.

Clippers' Lou Williams: Shoots just 2-for-10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted five points (2-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three assists, one rebound and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 105-89 loss to the Mavericks.

Wednesday's performance was uncharacteristically ineffective for Williams, who has found his stride lately after struggling early in the season. He had averaged 16.1 points on 46.7 percent shooting in his previous 18 outings coming into Wednesday's game.

Clippers' Lou Williams: Adds 14 in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists, two steals and one rebound during Monday's win over Dallas.

The veteran rebounded from a poor offensive outing a game prior in this one by posting double figures for sixth time over the past seven games. Williams is registering 13.3 points per matchup during that span compared to his season average of 12.4 points.

Clippers' Lou Williams: Contributes 16 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams totaled 16 points (6-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal over 27 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to the Wizards.

Williams is mainly known for his scoring, though he's added five or more assists in nearly one-third of his games played this season. Although he came off the bench, Williams took just one less shot attempt than Kawhi Leonard, who paced the team with 14. Since registering consecutive games in which he's scored fewer than 10 points, Williams has averaged 14.8 in his last four contests.

Clippers' Lou Williams: Struggles from field in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had 12 points (4-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists across 22 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss at Boston.

Williams scored in double digits for the third game -- and he's done that in all but two of his last 14 contests -- but that's where the positives end regarding his performance, as he struggled badly from the field and needed 13 shots to net 12 points. Williams should remain a decent fantasy asset due to his scoring potential despite coming off the bench, but his days of averaging close to 20 points per game seem to be a thing of the past.
