Lou Williams G TOR 10 Days

Williams scored 21 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3P, 7-7 FT) with three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes off the bench Monday.

Kyle Lowry got the night off, so Williams was able to get some run at the point as well as his more comfortable off guard position. He looks like he's all the way back from his February 2013 knee surgery, getting to the rim with ease, and Williams should prove to be a big addition to the Raptors' bench this season.

Lou Williams G TOR 18 Days

Williams played 28 minutes off the bench Sunday in his preseason debut for the Raptors, scoring 12 points (5-13 FG, 0-2 3P, 2-4 FT) with three steals and two assists.

He started off the game slowly, scoring just one point through the first three quarters, but Williams came alive in the final frame as the Raptors' starters were mostly on the bench. He'll fill a similar role once the regular season begins, providing a spark and some instant offense off the bench, and if he's now fully recovered from the knee issues that limited him in Atlanta, he could be a big weapon for Toronto on their second unit.

Lou Williams said on Friday that he's close to 100 percent.

He had ACL surgery 17 months ago and still didn't look great with the Hawks last season. The Raptors invested a ton on money on point guards this offseason and will likely throw Williams in with the second unit. He's not going to put up great numbers while the team is healthy.

Lou Williamshas looked great in Vegas workouts, according to Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri.

Ujiri watched Williams worked out in Las Vegas and said he didn't notice any effects of Williams' prior knee injury or surgery from a year ago. Williams will likely comprise half of the Raptors' second unit backcourt alongside Greivis Vasquez and could serve as a decent fantasy option in deeper leagues if he's able to carve out 20-plus minutes per game for himself.

The Hawks traded Lou Williams and Lucas Nogueira to the Raptors on Sunday in exchange for John Salmons.

Salmons' $7 million salary is only $1 million guaranteed. Williams' deal will pay him $5.5 million next season, and as usual this can be tied back to LeBron James -- by waiving Salmons the Hawks likely intend to clear enough cap space to pursue LeBron and other top free agents. A move to Toronto might be an upgrade for Williams if Kyle Lowry leaves the Raptors this summer, and it helps that he's one year further removed from ACL surgery.

Lou Williams G TOR 6 Months

Lou Williams had a costly turnover in the last minute of Game 6's loss to the Pacers, finishing with 16 points, one rebound, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He left his feet underneath the basket while dribbling just along the baseline and committed basketball sin, leaving his feet with no shot or no teammates open for a pass. Williams also attempted a 3-pointer in transition when the Hawks had numbers during a fast-break, so this wasn't his best game. His 25 minutes tonight were the most he's played in this series and he'll likely be back around 20 for Game 7 on Saturday.

Lou Williams scored 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting (0-for-7 from deep) with five rebounds, six assists and one steal in the Hawks' 95-93 loss to the Bobcats on Monday.

Williams is a rest-risk himself for Wednesday's game, but if the Hawks continue to trot out a depleted lineup with him in it then he'll be worth a look. Jeff Teague added 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting with three treys, four rebounds, five assists and a steal in the loss.

Lou Williams will start at shooting guard on Monday vs. the Bobcats.

The Hawks are resting Kyle Korver tonight and there should be some minutes available for Williams. Although, he did miss two games last week due to hamstring soreness and played only 19.7 minutes per game in the three following games, averaging 12.3 points, 2.3 assists and 1.3 triples in that span. He's a bit of a risky player to use tonight, but the upside is there.

Lou Williams played 17 minutes in his return on Wednesday for nine points, one board, two assists and three fouls.

He said after the game he just needed a couple games off to rest his sore hamstring and perhaps missing Sunday and Tuesday was the plan. It doesn't sound like a serious injury, but the light load in minutes tonight isn't very encouraging for his outlook. Most fantasy owners should be able to do better even though Williams and the Hawks have a nice schedule the rest of the way.

Lou Williams will miss Tuesday's game against the Pistons with a sore hamstring.

He's day-to-day, but he's now missed two straight, which is a shame because he was heating up. Kyle Korver should see a few extra minutes tonight.
