Terrence Williams SG/SF BOS 7 Months
Terrence Williams will be joining the Los Angeles Lakers D-League affiliate, the L.A. D-Fenders.
Williams spent a portion of last season with the Boston Celtics, but was waived by the team in late June. While Williams is a talented player, his fantasy value is limited even if he gets called up to join the Lakers, as evidenced by his 4.6 point per game average in 24 games with the Celtics last year.

The Celtics waived Terrence Williams on Sunday.
T-Will was slated to earn a minimum salary of $948k this season, becoming partially guaranteed on July 1, but the Celtics decided to pull the plug. He's battling knee tendinitis and was arrested on charges of domestic violence in May, and his image around the league presents a high hurdle to another NBA contract.

If Terrence Williams returns to the Celtics next season, the expectation is that he'll be a backup point guard.
"I think he's a smart player," Danny Ainge said. "He has good basketball instincts. His comfort level is more with the ball in his hands, and he hasn't had a ton of reps like that in the NBA. But I think that's where his strength lies, especially for us, because I think that he takes pressure off Avery." As long as Williams stays out of trouble and is healthy, he should be able to make the team.

Terrence Williams had an injection in his knee to "relieve a painful case of tendinitis."
Previously it was assumed that Williams would have a "minor surgery," but this isn't even as serious as that. Williams will be ready to roll for next season assuming he sticks with the Celtics.

Terrence Williams will undergo "minor surgery" on Wednesday.
It's not clear what Williams' surgery will be for, but the fact it's minor doesn't have us overly concerned. We shouldn't have to wait long to find out what Williams is having done.

Terrence Williams, who was arrested last weekend on charges of second-degree domestic violence, "suggested" that the Celtics still see him as a part of the team's future.
Williams has already spoken to Celtics GM Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers since the arrest, and he was at the C's practice facility on Saturday. The team is correctly reserving judgment until all the facts are known, but T-Will's status for 2013-14 remains uncertain -- his contract with Boston is fully unguaranteed, but would be partially guaranteed if he isn't waived before June 30.

Terrence Williams was back at the practice facility on Saturday.
He was arrested for second-degree domestic violence on Sunday and made some comments about the alleged altercation. "It's very frustrating, because I was there, I know what happened, and I know what didn't happen," Williams said. "To anybody reading, and everybody that's writing these stories, it makes me out to be this bandit." His status for next year is up in the air and he might have had trouble joining an NBA team even before his legal troubles.

Prosecutors delayed bringing second-degree domestic violence charges against Celtics guard Terrence Williams.
Williams was arrested Sunday after being accused of waving a handgun out of his car window at the mother of his 10-year-old son. A spokesman for the prosecutor's office said, "There will be an ongoing investigation, so a charging decision will be made at a later date." With a contract that's not guaranteed and an already poor reputation around the league, Williams' NBA future could be in jeopardy.

Celtics G Terrence Williams was arrested on Sunday after being accused of waving a handgun out of his car window at the mother of his 10-year-old son.
Williams' bail has been set at $25,000. He stepped into a sizable role for Boston during the playoffs this season, but his contract for 2013-14 is fully unguaranteed and this incident won't help his reputation around the league, which is already sullied enough that he spent the beginning of last season playing in China.

Doc Rivers haped praise on Terrence Williams following the Celtics Game 5 win on Wednesday.
"He controlled the ball," Rivers said. "he can handle pressure and bring it up the floor. He got guys into our stuff. He allowed us to be organized. Everybody told me he can't defend but he's proving everyone wrong." Williams has flashed solid play for the Celtics at various moments since he was signed, and there is a good chance he'll stick with the team next season as a backup point guard. Avery Bradley and Jason Terry are not point guards.
