Williams (hip) is cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Kings, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
He'll return to the Clippers' second unit after missing the past two games. In 12 appearances this season, the 34-year-old has averaged 9.3 points over 19.7 minutes per game. It's uncertain whether he'll play his usual minutes, but it wouldn't surprise anyone if the Clippers elect to ease him back in on a more limited basis.
Clippers head coach Tyronn Lue labeled Williams (hip) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.
Williams is still considered day-to-day, and his potential return Wednesday will depend on how he feels coming out of Tuesday's practice. The 34-year-old guard has noticed a steep drop in playing time this season, going from 28.7 minutes per game in 2019-20 to 19.7 minutes per game through his first 12 outings of the current campaign.
Williams (hip) won't play Sunday against the Pacers, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports.
Williams was questionable for Sunday's matchup, but he'll miss a second straight game due to left hip discomfort. Reggie Jackson and Terance Mann should have increased roles for the Clippers in his absence.
Williams (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pacers.
The 34-year-old sat out Friday's win over the Kings due to left hip discomfort, and his status for Sunday remains in question. Reggie Jackson and Terance Mann should see increased run if Williams misses a second straight contest.
Williams (hip) won't play Friday against the Kings, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Williams was questionable for Friday's matchup after he was limited with left hip discomfort Wednesday. However, he'll be unable to take the court against Sacramento. His next chance to suit up will be Sunday against the Pacers.
Williams (hip) is listed as questionable for Friday's game in Sacramento, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Williams managed to play through his left hip discomfort during Wednesday's win over the Pelicans, but he only handled nine minutes of action. If he ultimately takes the court Friday in Sacramento, it's possible that he could be similarly limited.
Williams played only nine minutes during Wednesday's win over the Pelicans due to left hip soreness, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Williams was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday with the hip issue and was cleared to play, but the injury apparently flared up during the first half, and he didn't retake the court after halftime. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, but the 34-year-old should be considered questionable for Friday's matchup with Sacramento until his status is updated.
Williams (hip) is active for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.
The 34-year-old was a late addition to the injury report with a left hip issue, but his availability never appeared in serious doubt since he was considered probable. Williams will fill his usual role off the bench for the Clippers on Wednesday.
Williams is probable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans with left hip discomfort.
The 34-year-old is a late addition to the injury report due to the hip issue, but he's still expected to play Wednesday. Assuming he's available, Williams should fill his usual role off the bench for Los Angeles.
Williams supplied 21 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four assists, three steals and one rebound across 23 minutes Sunday in the Clippers' 130-127 win over the Bulls.
Williams stepped up to give the Clippers a quality third option behind Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, but one solid showing likely won't be enough to override what has been a dismal start to the season. The star sixth man had failed to hit double figures in scoring in four of the past five games, averaging 7.0 points while shooting 37.8 percent from the field over that stretch. With his minutes down to 20.6 per game through 11 contests -- his fewest since 2006-07 -- Williams no longer looks like a must-roster option in standard leagues.
Williams recorded three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three assists, one rebound and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 win over the Warriors.
Williams hasn't seen quite the workload or usage he did last season, with the veteran garnering just 20.8 minutes per game and scoring 9.2 points on 8.3 shots. The addition of Luke Kennard this season and the retention of Reggie Jackson has cut into Williams' playing time, and he's not worth rostering in standard leagues as long as his playing time remains this low.
Williams posted four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), a rebound, two assists and a steal across 21 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Suns.
Williams has always been considered a premier scorer in the league regardless of his role, but his early season numbers have been quite disappointing. He has reached the 15-point mark just twice and has been held to single-digit points in four of his first seven games. Williams is shooting 44.8 percent from the field and 40 percent from three-point range, however, so his underperforming numbers might be a case of not having enough looks rather than being inefficient. He is averaging 9.3 points per game off the bench for the Clippers.
Williams scored 20 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go with three rebounds and five assists in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 124-101 win over Minnesota.
Williams was excellent off the bench, leading the team in scoring despite his limited action. The guard also tied for the team high with five assists, and he should remain a solid fantasy contributor as one of the best sixth-man role players in the league.
Williams finished scoreless (0-4 FG) in only nine minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Mavericks.
The game was a massive blowout from start to finish, so it's possible it was essentially a night off for the veteran, but Williams' limited role is something to keep an eye on. In the first two games of the season, Williams played 26 and 24 minutes, respectively.
Williams tallied 11 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 116-109 win over the Lakers.
Williams' role as one of the league's perennial sixth men isn't in jeopardy, despite the arrival of playmakers like Nicolas Batum and Luke Kennard. Sweet Lou will probably be the second man off the bench on a nightly basis behind either Ivica Zubac or Serge Ibaka, depending on the night. Usage rate is always a concern for Williams, as game flow sometimes restricts his participation, so it will be interesting to see how coach Tyronn Lue utilizes him with new faces on the bench.
Williams registered 12 points (6-7 FG) and an assist in just six minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss against the Lakers.
Williams is one of the top scoring threats in the league when he gets hot, and his performance in this game was the best example of what he can do in those circumstances. The veteran shooting guard will continue to have a role off the bench once the regular season begins, and he remains a viable fantasy option across most formats due to his scoring ability.
Williams went off for 36 points (13-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's 135-133 Game 4 overtime loss to the Mavericks.
Williams continues to provide an impressive punch offensively off the bench for the Clippers. He has reached double figures in scoring in all four playoff games thus far, and Williams will likely need to turn in another solid outing in Tuesday's Game 5 if the team is going to avoid falling into a 3-2 hole in the series.
Williams managed 23 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 127-114 loss to the Mavericks.
With Patrick Beverley (calf) on the sidelines, it was Williams who stepped up. A late arrival to Orlando, it took Williams some time to find his rhythm on the offensive end. His role is secure, but if Beverley is forced to miss additional time, the Clippers are going to need Williams' passing abilities as well as his scoring.
Williams finished with seven points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and six assists in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 117-115 loss to the Suns.
Williams took to the court for the first time since play resumed and the rust was evident. His production was mediocre to say the least, although the fact he was able to play 21 minutes is encouraging. Patrick Beverley (calf) played only eight minutes and if he is forced to miss time, Williams could find himself in a larger role moving forward.
Williams will be available for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Williams cleared his mandatory 10-day quarantine period and will be available to make his debut Tuesday evening. The veteran was able to participate in scrimmages, but he could be a bit rusty, as he was not able to practice with the team during that 10-day isolation period.
