Mo Williams G POR 6 Hrs
Mo Williams will rest in Wednesday's finale.
He's been dealing with some knee issues and is no spring chicken, so it makes sense for the Blazers to give him a rest. LaMarcus Aldridge will join him in street clothes.

Mo Williams may be rested on Wednesday, as the Blazers gear up for their first-round matchup with the Rockets.
Williams recently returned from a knee injury and a maintenance day makes perfect sense for the 11-year veteran. Williams has averaged 24.8 minutes off the bench this season, while no other reserve has averaged more than Dorell Wright's 14.5 minutes per game.

Mo Williams (knee) returned to action on Friday, scoring four points on 1-of-7 shooting with zero rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes.
Unless the Blazers start resting guys, then Williams is just a low-end asset in deeper formats.

Mo Williams will return to the lineup on Friday night vs. the Jazz.
He was rested on Wednesday night and it may have been due to a knee injury which was a small issue back in March. The Blazers played their starters at least 37 minutes each on Wednesday, so Mo getting back in the lineup should help them a bit. Williams is a lukewarm fantasy option.

Mo Williams is on the inactive list for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.
He's battled some knee issues in the past month and this may be more of a precaution than anything else. C.J. McCollum could see more playing time tonight, but his body of work certainly doesn't make him a fantasy option.

Mo Williams (knee) provided a spark off the bench in Friday's win over the Bulls and scored 18 points with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, and two assists on 7-of-11 shooting in 25 minutes.
Williams' knee injury looks to have gotten a whole lot better as this was his second consecutive strong game and it came on the tail end of of Portland's back-to-back set. The 31-year-old provides a veteran presence off the Blazers' bench and will continue to provide serviceable numbers in his 20-25 minutes per game off the bench. He's a better option for deeper leagues, but he can still provide some value in standard leagues in his bench role.

Mo Williams was distributing the ball against the Hawks on Thursday, handing out 11 assists with eight points, four boards and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.
Well, so much for the knee injury. Williams said he was severely sore before today's game, but he played one of his better games of the season. The Blazers had one of the worst benches in decades last season, but Mo has been a big reason why he has his team in the hunt for the playoffs. He's worth a look as a safe, low-upside guy in standard leagues.

Mo Williams (knee) will fight through a sore left knee and suit up against the Hawks Thursday night.
Williams described his knee as "severely sore" after injuring it almost two weeks ago, but is committed to playing against the Hawks Thursday night. If the Trail Blazers weren't in a fight for playoff seeding (and even a playoff spot), Williams said he wouldn't play. "I absolutely would have sat out," he said. "The pain is that bad. But I have to give it a go." The 31-year-old doesn't have a ton of fantasy upside, but his per game averages of 10.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.2 3-pointers can provide some value in deeper leagues.

Mo Williams briefly exited Tuesday's game with a left knee injury, but he returned in the second half to finish with three points, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 20 minutes.
Mo made just 1-of-6 field goals (1-of-4 from downtown), and his 41 percent shooting this season is even harder to swallow given his sub-par defense. Williams is barely clinging to value in 14-team leagues over the past month, but at least his knee injury wasn't serious.

Mo Williams exited Tuesday's game with an apparent left knee injury.
It's not immediately clear what the issue is, but Williams was seen stretching his knee before walking into the Blazers' locker room, leaving him questionable to return.
