    Former Lakers forward Johnathan Williams signed with the Maccabi Rishon Basketball Club in Israel for the 2019-20 season.

    In 24 games with the Lakers, last season Williams averaged 6.5 points and 4.1 rebounds, while showing potential if given an opportunity. The deal looks like it is just for one season, where Williams can show off his skill set in hopes of landing back in the NBA towards the end of the season or next offseason.

Fantasy News

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanovic was on fire on Tuesday as he led the Kings to victory with a season-high 31 points (11-of-14 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) to go with seven triples, seven assists, four rebounds and three steals in 36 minutes off the bench.

    Bogdanovic has been thriving lately, and the fact that his hot stretch started before De'Aaron Fox went down is even more encouraging. Bogdanovic's production has put him into the top-65 for the season and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight to his impressive stat lines.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph delivered a career-high 14 assists in 39 minutes in the Kings' 120-116 win over the Suns on Tuesday.

    Joseph added six points on 2-of-5 shooting, five rebounds, a steal and two blocks in his fourth consecutive start. Joseph traditionally provides very low per-minute stats, so when he doesn't get near 40 minutes, his numbers aren't quite so palatable. Until De'Aaron Fox returns, Joseph is a low-end starting point guard for those desperate for assists.

  • Richaun Holmes
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Richaun Holmes grabbed a career-high 15 boards vs. the Suns on Tuesday as part of a 20-point night (8-for-11 FGs, 4-for-4 FTs) with a steal and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    The days when we could only dream of what Holmes would do with 30-plus minutes are gone. Since Holmes joined the starting lineup, he's been playing right around 30 minutes, which has him looking like a middle-round value. He could be in for a slight reduction in value once Marvin Bagley returns if the Kings frontcourt is otherwise healthy, but it appears that the Kings might finally be the team that just lets Holmes play. Nemanja Bjelica also had another good game tonight with 17 points, eight rebounds, a steal, a block and three treys in 31 minutes.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker had a huge night on Tuesday with 30 points (10-of-20 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes, but the Suns lost 116-120 to the Kings.

    Booker has thrived with and without Ricky Rubio (back spasms) this season. And while his steals are down from last season (0.9 to 0.5), his field goal percentage is up to an incredible 53.4 percent. Playing with Rubio could explain an increase, though that will probably still come back to earth a bit. As it stands right now, Booker's ranking is up to 17th/26th (8-cat/9-cat).

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. had a great line on Tuesday as he put up 20 points (8-of-17 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), eight rebounds, two assists, five steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes in a loss to the Kings.

    Oubre has improved slightly this season, which would normally be a positive. However, more was expected of him based on where he went in many fantasy drafts. He's sitting in seventh-round territory and could bump up to sixth, but it doesn't look like he's going to make it any higher this season.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo received some extra minutes on Tuesday and he provided four points (0-of-3 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), two rebounds and five assists in 18 minutes.

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) had to take a seat after the first half causing Okobo to get his extra run. Even if Rubio misses more time, it's hard to trust Okobo to even replicate this performance. Jevon Carter picked up a DNP-CD, but he could play on Thursday, and it was Tyler Johnson that started the second half tonight. Though Johnson had a tough night with just two points, three rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes.

  • Mikal Bridges
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Mikal Bridges was superb in 26 minutes off the bench with a season-high 20 points (6-of-9 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs) plus five rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer vs. the Kings on Tuesday.

    Bridges was a beneficiary of some extra minutes with Aron Baynes (right hip contusion) out tonight. Unless something like this causes his minutes to stick at this level, Bridges won't likely be anything more than a steals streamer this season. He did, however, play more minutes than Dario Saric tonight as Saric started and had just two points, three boards, one dime and a block in 21 minutes.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson put up a career-high 18 points on 7-for-13 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes vs. the Kings on Tuesday.

    Johnson's minutes have been creeping up lately. He's played at least 19 minutes in six straight games and he's averaged 2.7 threes over that stretch. He's on the radar as a threes streamer and someone to watch in case he continues to carve out a bigger share of the minutes.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) was able to start the game on Tuesday after sitting out on Monday, but he missed all seven of his shots and did not play in the second half.

    Rubio hit one of his two freebies and otherwise had just one rebound, two assists and a steal in his 16 minutes. The Suns next game is on Thursday, and it will be hard to trust that Rubio will produce even if the news about his back is better. If you can afford to sit him until we see him looking somewhat normal, it would be wise to do so.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder double-doubled with 15 points (5-of-11 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), 11 rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes in a 95-114 home loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Crowder has been a late-round player this season, but unless you need an inefficient player with a high floor and low ceiling, there are probably better options available. Dillon Brooks, who is in the same range but with a bit more upside, had 18 points, three rebounds, two steals, one block and three treys in 32 minutes.
