C.J. Williams

  • Lance Thomas
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets have waived Lance Thomas, CJ Massinburg, C.J. Williams and Devin Cannady.

    This was expected for Thomas as the Nets are already at the limit with 15 guaranteed contracts. They will have a spot open up once Wilson Chandler reaches the 5th game of his 25 game ban so there is a chance Thomas is brought back at that time. Massinburg, Williams and Cannady were all candidates for the open two-way roster spot but it seems the Nets will hold off from using it for now.

    The Nets have signed guard C.J. Williams.

    Terms of the contract have not yet been disclosed. Williams played sparingly with the Wolves last season and should not be high on anyone's fantasy radar.

    As of right now, the Nets are "very unlikely" to sign Carmelo Anthony, according to a report from Shams Charania.

    Brooklyn is more likely to sign players that they have worked out recently, with Charania naming Lance Thomas and C.J. Williams as possibilities. At least more people can complain about Melo being unsigned now.

    C.J. Williams scored six points with two 3-pointers in 18 minutes on Wednseday night.

    Williams was actually a semi-regular contributor for the Clippers last season but averaged about eight minutes a night through 15 appearances for Minnesota. He was about irrelevant as it gets, sitting outside the top-450.

    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    C.J. Williams scored a season-high 11 points in Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets.

    We haven't written about Williams since he signed his two-way deal back at the end of July, but he played well tonight. He added four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer but with just 6.9 mpg on the year in 10 appearances it'd take a shutdown or two for him to get close to the fantasy radar.

    G/F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves are finalizing a two-way contract with ex-Clipper C.J. Williams.

    Williams ended up playing 38 games and making 17 starts for the Clippers last year as the team was crushed by backcourt injuries. It led to averages of 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.3 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers in 18.6 minutes per game. Given that he's unlikely to play that much under coach Thibodeau, Williams can be safely ignored in fantasy.

    G/F, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have waived C.J. Williams.

    It was reported recently that this would happen so it's no surprise. Williams showed well in limited action last season and should find another gig somewhere, and it's probably a better move for his career given L.A.'s depth in the backcourt.

    G/F, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are expected to waive C.J. Williams, according to beat reporter Brad Turner of the LA Times.

    Williams was on a two-way contract last season with the Clippers and played in 38 games of which he started 18. The Clippers simply have too much backcourt depth after drafting guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson in the first round and retaining Avery Bradley and Milos Teodosic in free agency. Williams should be able to find a new team before the season starts. The Clippers are at 17 roster spots after this transaction.

    C.J. Williams capped his rookie season with eight points, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers.

    Williams played 38 games this season but felt the squeeze as a rookie and two-way contract player, returning to the G-League from January 11 to March 28 with only two short appearances in between. He saw consistent minutes in the mid-twenties and above in late December when the Clippers were at their thinnest but didn't do much beyond a few double-digit scoring games with low-end steals and triples. Williams was just inside the top-300 for 9-cat leagues, averaging only 0.5 turnovers per game.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Austin Rivers, initially listed as questionable, will not play on Monday night and may not suit up in Wednesday's season finale.

    There's no reason for the Clippers to play him if he's hurt, so we'd be shocked to see him again this year. He's carved out late-round value this year though that was undoubtedly helped along by all of L.A.'s injuries. Tyrone Wallace will be getting plenty of run over these next two games.

  • Lou Williams
    PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Pelicans.

    Williams has been dealing with an ankle injury and will get some much-needed rest with the Clippers out of the playoff chase. He might sit on Wednesday as well. C.J. Williams will help absorb some of his minutes off the bench but Tyrone Wallace is looking like a great add in just about all leagues.

    PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are expected to sign C.J. Williams to a three-year deal.

    Williams worked his way up from a two-way contract and proved he could be a valuable reserve. Williams is averaging 5.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist ins 18.0 minutes per game this season with the Clippers.

  • Milos Teodosic
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Milos Teodosic has been diagnosed with a tear in his plantar fascia and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Teodosic is now safe to drop in all re-draft leagues. His court vision and moxie have provided some fun highlights this season but injuries really prevented the "rookie" from building up much steam throughout the year. Austin Rivers will hold things down at point guard and is a must-add player where available, while other backcourt guys like Lou Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans figure to get in the mix a bit more. Williams' stock is obviously unchanged. It might even open up more time for wing types like Tyrone Wallace and C.J. Williams, depending on how the Clippers shuffle the deck. Outside of Rivers and maybe Wallace, however, it's going to be a pretty risky proposition.

    SG/SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    The freshly recalled C.J. Williams played 17 minutes on Wednesday night, scoring nine points with a 3-pointer while shooting 3-of-5 from the field.

    Williams is one of a few Clippers who managed to stand out on two-way deals this season but is now back up with the big club since his G-League season is over. He's going to soak up time in the rotation but can't be counted on outside of extremely deep formats. This was his first game since March 2nd.

  • Milos Teodosic
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Milos Teodosic didn’t play at all in the second half of Tuesday’s win against the Bucks and Doc Rivers’ assumption is that he is not going to dress on the upcoming two-game trip.

    Injuries have decimated the Clippers this year but at least they can count on two-way players C.J. Williams and Tyrone Wallace for the remainder of the season. Teodosic is being bothered by a sore left plantar fascia that caused him to miss 22 games in November and he is most likely looking at some time on the sidelines. Lou Williams and Austin Rivers will carry the point guard duties going forward and are strong options against the Suns tonight.
