Williams did not practice Monday due to an illness.
He should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, but with a couple days to rest, it would seem like a solid bet that he will play. Williams has been excellent since Ricky Rubio went down, and has double digit assists in two of his last three games.

Williams posted his second double-double of the week by scoring 11 points (5-16 FG, 1-7 3Pt) with 12 assists Saturday.
Williams has been getting extra shots recently, many of them likely left behind by injured guard Kevin Martin (wrist). Additionally, he has been starting at point guard where he has had the ball in his hands more often and been able to rack up assists. Teammates Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Martin will come back at some point this year, but until then, Williams should continue to post stats like this.

Williams had 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with four assists in the loss to the Spurs on Friday.
Williams was coming off a double-double (14 points, 13 assists) in the Wednesday win over the Knicks, but he was outmatched by Tony Parker. He has hit four 3-pointers in his last two games.

Williams started at point guard and scored 14 points with 13 assists in 31 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Knicks. It was his first start at point guard this season.
It looks like the Zach LaVine experiment as the starting point guard has ended in at least the short term, and LaVine also got about half the minutes off the bench he saw as a starter. Williams should put up decent assist and scoring totals as the starter with Ricky Rubio out.

Williams will start at point guard Wednesday.
Rookie Zach LaVine may have lost the starting job that he was given after Ricky Rubio's injury, making Williams the point guard to own in Minnesota for the time being.

Williams will remain with the second unit despite Ricky Rubio's ankle injury, the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports.
Rookie Zach LaVine will be given the first opportunity to start, which will limit Williams to around 25 minutes per game. He is still worth a roster spot in most formats, as he profiles as a better distributor than LaVine, but what the rookie lacks in experience, he makes up for in upside due to his extreme athleticism.

Williams scored just two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) with four rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 22 minutes in the loss to the Heat on Saturday.
Williams was expected to move into the starting lineup for Ricky Rubio (ankle), but coach Flip Saunders went with rookie Zach LaVine. If Williams can pull himself out of his current slump (just 5-of-27 - 18.5 percent - from the field in his last four games), he could be a nice source of points and assists.

Williams is expected to play 25-30 minutes Saturday according to coach Flip Saunders, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
Williams will make the start Saturday against the Celtics but will also share time on the court with rookie Zach LaVine. Either way, Williams is a legitimate flier option when early reports have Ricky Rubio (ankle) out for the next 7-8 weeks.

Williams played in 31 minutes off the bench Friday after Ricky Rubio left with an ankle injury, scoring four points (1-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT).
Rubio will have his ankle evaluated again Saturday, but it's expected that he'll miss an extended period of time. Rubio owners would be wise to pick up Williams for that time, as he did finish Friday's game against the Magic with seven assists, two rebounds and three blocks. He could even be a useful streaming option for non-Rubio owners.

Williams scored six points with five assists in 21 minutes in Friday's preseason win over Chicago.
Williams enters the season as the backup point guard to Ricky Rubio. If the T-Wolves decide to keep J.J. Barea on the roster, Friday's outing could be a typical night for Williams since Minnesota played it's likely regular lineup except for injured Andrew Wiggins.
