    Kenrich Williams had a rough go of it on Tuesday against the Bucks, posting five points, two rebounds and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

    Williams was riding a run of late-middle round value but that was propped up by some big steals totals. Tonight we saw what happens when the bottom falls out, though we'll also give him some leash considering the matchup. Williams is more of a roto play but his starting job is safe and he should still be rostered in 14-team leagues.

    Kenrich Williams played 30 minutes on Sunday night and put nine points, two rebounds, a steal, a pair of blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Williams only went 3-for-11 from the field but continues to bring in the cash counters. His shooting has abandoned him of late but Williams is swiping 2.2 steals per game over his last five, so there's definite appeal since we're in the category-hunting phase of the season.

    Kenrich Williams flashed some of his patented hustle in Friday's loss to the Raptors as he recorded five steals, nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three triples.

    K-Hustle is an interesting player to watch down the stretch. The Pelicans are in rebuild mode and they might want to work on the 23-year-old's development moving forward. He has a diverse stat line but struggles with scoring efficiency and confidence at times.

    Kenrich Williams started and scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three treys, seven boards, five assists and three steals over 34 minutes in Saturday's win over the Lakers.

    Williams has hit just 32.4 percent of his shots over the last four games so his fantasy value has been somewhat muted, but he's more or less a must-own player in 12-team formats. The Pelicans have named him as a guy to get more minutes and the shooting numbers will bounce back shortly.

  • Elfrid Payton
    G, New Orleans Pelicans

    Elfrid Payton (sprained right ankle) will play on Friday vs. the Pacers but Darius Miller (sprained right ankle) will not.

    Payton might be able to improve on his season averages with news that Jrue Holiday’s minutes would be reduced and has some appeal as a low-end point guard. Kenrich Williams will have additional 3-point shots coming his way as well.

    G, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans plan to give increased minutes to their younger players.

    With Danny Ferry also saying that Jrue Holiday's minutes are going to be headed in the other direction, that's good news for Frank Jackson. Kenrich Williams, who is already starting, also benefits, while this could also help out Cheick Diallo depending on how the Pels view Jahlil Okafor. Outside of Williams, there's only deep-league impact here.

    Kenrich Williams scored nine points while corralling a team-high 12 rebounds to go with four assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Williams went 4-for-7 from the floor and saw 34 minutes of action on Thursday and is also going to benefit from Anthony Davis (shoulder) missing time. His rebounding numbers are most of his value, but he also has the potential to give you a triple-one like tonight. It's baffling that he didn't get drafted as he has the talent to play in the NBA and is a standard-league player as of now.

    Kenrich Williams scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting (1-of-6 from deep) with 13 rebounds, seven assists and one block over 37 minutes on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

    Williams' stat set started off sluggish when he was popping up on the radar but not anymore as he's sitting on a mid-round run over the last seven games. And considering the Pelicans can only get more thin the rest of the way, his already strong playing time seems really safe right now. He's a must-own player and in competitive leagues where top-100 value is hard to find he's a must-add player.

    Kenrich Williams logged a team-high 37 minutes on Friday vs. the Wolves and delivered in spades with 19 points (6-of-10 shooting) with six rebounds, four triples, two assists and one block.

    He was one of the hotter pickups during the Pelicans' plague of injuries. Williams has managed to stay in the rotation – and his minutes tonight are a good sign – thanks to his high energy and ceaseless motor. He's worth an end-of-bench spot in standard leagues right now.

    Kenrich Williams scored eight points on 3-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds, five assist, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers on Monday against the Pacers.

    Williams has shown the ability to eat up rebounds when given playing time, but his game goes far beyond that. He's a decent passer and is willing to shoot the 3-ball which is both good and bad. The good news is that he hit two triples tonight, but the bad news is that he attempted eight shots beyond the arc which hurt his shooting numbers overall. Cheick Diallo (12 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and a block) also turned out a nice line but when the Pelicans get their bigs back both players will lose almost all their value.

    Kenrich Williams will start over Solomon Hill in Monday's game against the Pacers.

    It's well-deserved for Williams, who has taken his opportunity and run with it while the Pelicans have been so shorthanded. He's an intriguing deep-league player for the rest of the season, and it's far from surprising to see Hill get demoted since New Orleans is trying to trade away his oversized contract.
