Williams was present at Tuesday's shootaround after missing Monday's practice due to illness, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.

The illness doesn't look to be anything serious, and unless Williams' condition goes downhill during the afternoon, he'll be in the starting lineup at point guard Tuesday versus Indiana. Williams is coming off of a 13-point, nine-rebound performance against the Lakers on Sunday.

Williams (illness) posted 13 points, one rebound, nine assists, and three steals in 34 minutes of action Sunday against the Lakers.

Williams has had a rather solid stretch of games, averaging 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 8.8 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers made over the last five contests. He's worth owning in most leagues as long as he's healthy.

Williams (illness) will play Sunday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

Williams was held out of practice Saturday, so it's possible that he's not completely over the sickness that held him out Saturday. If Williams plays fewer minutes Sunday, they will likely go to Jarrett Jack, though Jack likely won't get enough playing time to be a viable option either.

Williams (illness) is a game-time call for Sunday's matchup with the Lakers, Rod Boone of Newsday reports.

Williams was quiet in Friday's win over the Cavs, but he registered double-digit assists in each of the previous two games. While his numbers are still down considerably across the board, he's still an excellent passer and consistently produces solid assist numbers (6.4 per game in March). If he's held out Sunday, Jarrett Jack would likely enter the starting lineup in his place.

Williams did not practice Saturday due to an illness, Fred Kerber of the New York Post reports.

It's hard to say whether or not this means Williams will miss Sunday's game against the Lakers, but the odds can't be good. He's been on a decent streak as of late, so the Nets are going to want him even if he isn't 100 percent.

Williams scored 10 points (2-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with 14 assists and seven rebounds in 31 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Hornets.

That's back-to-back near triple-doubles for Williams, who appears to be coming alive as the Nets try to stay afloat in the Eastern Conference playoff race. His scoring is still inconsistent, but as long as he's racking up assists and contributing in other categories, he'll keep his fantasy owners happy.

Williams scored 20 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with two rebounds, six assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers.

This was a solid line from Williams given the one-sided score line. Williams is a shut down candidate as the Nets fall further out of playoff contention. Owners should consider a contingency plan should this occur.

Williams scored 18 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with four rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

He also committed six turnovers and five fouls, so owners in leagues that have more than the usual categories may have been less than pleased with Williams' efforts. After scoring a combined 25 points in his previous three games, however, they may just be relieved to see Williams find his shot again.

Williams scored 12 points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with six assists in 27 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.

Seven different Nets scored between eight and 12 points, and no one saw more court time than Williams, but the balanced approach didn't produce a win for Brooklyn. The point guard is now averaging 15.0 points, 6.5 assists, 3.4 boards, 1.3 threes and 1.1 steals in his last eight games.
