It’s a brutal injury for Williams, who was in a dogfight for minutes after a strong second half showing last year. While he can be erased from your draft boards, it also opens up a new can of worms in Phoenix. The leash extends for traditional centers Tyson Chandler and Alex Len, with Len looking like a particularly impactful add in the second half. Williams’ absence also opens up potential minutes at the five for guys like Dragan Bender, Marquese Chriss and Josh Jackson, should the Suns choose to use their most interesting on-paper groups. We like Chriss as the best target of the bunch and he’s probably the only one worth pursuing in standard leagues for the time being.
