Top Mark Williams News

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Falls out of rotation Tuesday

    Williams played six minutes and finished with six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in Tuesday's 128-97 loss to the Suns.

    Despite garnering double-digit minutes in each of the Hornets' last four games while averaging 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.3 steals during that stretch, Williams was inexplicably dropped from head coach Steve Clifford's rotation in favor of Nick Richards. Williams still ended up seeing some run in garbage time and put up quality numbers during his time on the court, but the fact that he didn't get off the bench until late in the contest at least casts some doubt about his ability to receive a clear path to a starting role if top center Mason Plumlee is traded elsewhere ahead of the Feb. 9 deadline.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Swats season-high five shots

    Williams posted 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and five blocks in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 122-117 win over the Rockets.

    After exiting head coach Steve Clifford's rotation late last week, Williams has supplanted Nick Richards as starting center Mason Plumlee's top backup for both of Charlotte's first two games of the current week. His stellar showing Wednesday likely gives Williams some added security in the second-unit role, and it's possible he eventually supplants Plumlee -- a 32-year-old on an expiring deal -- on the depth chart before season's end if the non-contending Hornets elect to prioritize younger players. For the time being, Williams looks like he'll have to settle for minutes in the teens in most games, but the first-round pick out of Duke looks like a high-upside stash in fantasy leagues.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Back in rotation Monday

    Williams racked up nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and six rebounds over 17 minutes during Monday's 130-118 loss to the Celtics.

    Williams re-entered the rotation Monday, playing as the primary backup behind Mason Plumlee. It appears as though Steve Clifford is going to chop and change when it comes to Plumlee's understudy, making it very hard to trust either Williams or Nick Richards moving forward. Managers should still keep an eye on things just in case Plumlee is given a lesser role at some point, though that doesn't seem as though it is going to happen any time soon.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Grabs eight boards in loss

    Williams ended with seven points (2-6 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one block and one steal in 16 minutes during Sunday's 116-111 loss to Indiana.

    Williams flirted with a double-double in the loss, adding a pair of defensive counters in what was an other intriguing performance. After a brief period of relevance, Williams has seen his playing time dip of late, keeping him off the standard league radar. If and when the Hornets opt to move away from Mason Plumlee, Williams could very well become a must-roster player. Until that time, managers should simply keep an eye on his playing time, looking for any upward trends.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Records double-double off bench

    Williams had 17 points (7-7 FG, 3-5 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals across 21 minutes during Thursday's 121-113 victory over Oklahoma City.

    Williams led Charlotte's second unit in scoring and rebounds, tallying his first double-double of the season. Williams, who has shifted back and forth between Charlotte and the G League this year, recorded season-high totals in points and rebounds in Thursday's win.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Primary backup at center Thursday

    Williams will serve as the Hornets' primary backup center again Thursday versus the Thunder behind Mason Plumlee, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Williams has played reasonably well of late and should play a decent amount of minutes again Thursday despite the return of Nick Richards (ankle), who will give the team some added frontcourt depth. Williams' primary backup duties may not last too much longer, but he'll at least get one more opportunity in the role against OKC.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Career-best performance in loss

    Williams logged nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 16 minutes during Monday's 124-113 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Williams put up career-high numbers across the board Monday, sliding in as the primary backup behind Mason Plumlee. With Nick Richards out due to an ankle injury, Williams finally saw some of the playing time that managers had been hoping to see all season. While this is likely just a short-term thing, Williams is at least worth a look in deeper formats until Richards is able to return.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Recalled to NBA

    Williams will rejoin the Hornets' active roster Thursday.

    Williams joined the Swarm for the G League Showcase but will return to the NBA following the conclusion of the tournament. He has appeared in just three games for Charlotte this season, so he is not on the fantasy radar.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Leads Swarm with double-double

    Williams finished with 29 points (13-17 FG, 2-5 FT), 17 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes during Thursday's 109-90 win over G League Ignite.

    Williams led the Swarm in points and rebounds en route to his eighth double-double for the G League squad. Williams has averaged 22.2 points, 12.2 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 assist in 11 appearances for Greensboro this year.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Plays 25 minutes for G League club

    Williams (ankle) logged 25 minutes Tuesday for the G League's Greensboro Swarm in its 108-91 loss to the Sioux Falls Skyforce, finishing with 18 points (9-12 FG), nine rebounds, three blocks and one assist.

    Before Charlotte assigned him to the G League on Monday, Williams hadn't appeared in a game for either the Hornets or the Swarm since Dec. 2 while he dealt with a left ankle sprain. Though Williams showed no signs of rust during his return to action with Greensboro, the strong showing Tuesday is unlikely to result in him being featured in the NBA rotation anytime soon. The Hornets are content to stick with Nick Richards as the primary backup to starting center Mason Plumlee.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Assigned to G League

    The Hornets assigned Williams (ankle) to the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Monday.

    Williams will join the Swarm in time for the G League Showcase, where he'll be in store for playing time after he's spent most of the season on the outside of Charlotte's rotation. Before the G League assignment, Williams was sidelined for the Hornets' previous eight games with a sprained ankle, but he's ostensibly healthy now.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Not playing Sunday

    Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    The rookie big man has struggled with injuries in his first year in The Association and is now in line to miss his eighth game in a row, but his continued absence shouldn't impact the Hornets' rotation. His next chance to play will come Monday in the second half of a back-to-back against the Kings, but his chances of playing that game are slim to none.
