    Kenrich Williams (back soreness) will remain sidelined on Monday.

    Williams has been out for each of the last three games and was on his way out of the rotation before getting hurt. He's someone to keep on watch lists in deeper formats if he can get back before all of his injured teammates.

    Kenrich Williams (right lower back soreness) will not play in Saturday's game against the Celtics.

    He's fun to watch for the way he hustles, but he's been irrelevant in fantasy this season. That doesn't look to change even with all of the injuries in New Orleans.

    Kenrich Williams has been ruled out of Friday's contest vs. the Knicks as he continues to recover from lower back soreness.

    Williams is currently not playing enough minutes even when healthy to be fantasy relevant.

    Kenrich Williams (right lower back spasms) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    Williams has not been a productive fantasy player, but Jaxson Hayes could see a few more minutes if he's absent.

    Kenrich Williams logged just 10 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

    Williams had two rebounds and one assist and has been trending downward for a while now. He can safely be watched from the wire in most formats.

    Kenrich Williams had a well-rounded game on Sunday, notching three points, six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Williams can check multiple boxes on any given night, and while he never really pops off the page there's nice value in someone chipping in like this consistently. Williams can be viewed as a top-200 guy at his peak, but those hustle stats are especially appealing if you need some specialist help.

    Kenrich Williams was invisible for the Pelicans in 26 minutes as a starter on Friday, kicking in three points (1-of-3 from deep), four rebounds and one assist.

    Williams has been unable to provide quality value, or any value for that matter, in recent games. He can be dropped in most formats for a hot FA.

    Kenrich Williams started for Lonzo Ball on Monday but was unimpressive in his 32 minutes on the floor, producing two points (1-of-6 shooting) with eight rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Williams is normally more effective than this when given some heavy burn. So as long as he's getting deployed as a starter and is averaging more than 30 minutes per game, you can expect better things down the road.

    The Pelicans have switched up their starting lineup for Monday's game, sending Lonzo Ball and Jaxson Hayes to the bench in favor of Kenrich Williams and Jaxson Hayes.

    This looks like a matchup decision, with Williams probably drawing some of the Blake Griffin assignment and Okafor better suited to crash and bang with Andre Drummond. The two replacements have streaming appeal tonight but we wouldn't change any valuations here.

    Derrick Favors (personal) has rejoined the Pelicans but is unlikely to play during Monday's game.

    Favors hasn't played in a game since his mother passed away. He last played on November 16 and it seems like he should return shortly. Kenrich Williams and Jahlil Okafor will start against the Pistons.

    Derrick Favors (personal) will remain out on Saturday when the Pelicans face the Mavs.

    With Favors out Jaxson Hayes will have a bigger role to play for the Pelicans, and Kenrich Williams will have some potential to be productive as well.

    Derrick Favors (personal) will not play on Thursday vs. the Suns.

    Favors is dealing with something much bigger than basketball right now. While he remains out, Jaxson Hayes, Nicolò Melli and Kenrich Williams could see more opportunity.

    Kenrich Williams will play on Thursday against the Suns despite being hampered by an ankle sprain.

    Williams could see additional opportunity on Thursday as the Pelicans will continue to be without Derrick Favors (personal).
