Marvin Williams had six points, six rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 23 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Nets as the Bucks limited their starters.
Williams has now played 23 minutes in back-to-back games for the Bucks after missing their opening game against the Celtics. The team rested a number of their main guys, giving the bench unit additional opportunities. Williams is likely to feature in some capacity during most games but the playing time is simply insufficient when it comes to putting up meaningful fantasy numbers.

Marvin Williams (groin) is off the injury report and will be available to play on Sunday.
Williams will operate as bench depth for the Bucks and should be battling for time with Ersan Ilyasova. There's no fantasy appeal here but Williams is a great insurance player for the league's top team.

Marvin Williams (left groin) will miss Friday's matchup with the Celtics.
It seemed like everything was heading in this direction for Williams. The Bucks have little interest in rushing his return. He will be a bench piece once healthy, and the main beneficiaries will be Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson in the meantime. Neither makes for an appealing DFS option today.

It is doubtful that Marvin Williams is able to play against the Celtics on Friday as he nurses a strained left groin.
Williams was signed by the Bucks after being bought out by the Hornets, where he spent the previous five and a half seasons. He will be a key part of the bench rotation but is unlikely to produce fantasy value unless a few players in front of him sit out. His absence may mean more minutes for Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson but neither are reliable fantasy options.

Marvin Williams took a big step back in 2019-20, largely due to a big decline in playing time.
Williams finished the season averaging 19.4 mpg overall with minimal difference between his Hornets and Bucks figures (19.7 vs. 18.5). Charlotte was focused on developing its younger players, while there were no expectations that Williams would hold a big role after being bought out and signing with the league's best team. The veteran has always had a 9-cat game that ticks multiple boxes, and that was still present even if the volume wasn't: 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 threes per game. He was able to manage top-250/215 value (8/9-cat), but unfortunately it seems unlikely that he'll come back into big minutes going forward.

Marvin Williams made his debut for the Bucks on Wednesday and scored nine points with four rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) sat out on Wednesday which opened up an opportunity for Williams. Williams will play limited minutes for a deep Bucks team and can be left on the waiver wire.

According to head coach Mike Budenholzer, Marvin Williams will make his Bucks debut off the bench on Wednesday as they face the Pacers.
Williams could have some appeal with Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) ruled out but not in his first game with a new team. If Giannis misses a game down the stretch, "Old Man Marv" could have some streamer-appeal. He is best left on the wire for now.

Marvin Williams has joined the Bucks but is unlikely to play on Monday.
After Williams was bought out by the Hornets, the Bucks were able to sign him.
He isn't particularly relevant in fantasy.

Marvin Williams will reportedly be reinforcing the already-formidable roster of the Bucks once his buyout with the Hornets is finalized, according to Shams Charania.
Williams will be there for additional depth come the playoffs and will see very little opportunities to shine in fantasy in the regular season. He can be left on the wire.

Marvin Williams is finalizing a contract buyout with the Hornets in order to join a contender.
He has been really uninspiring the last couple of years and has only been a consideration in deeper formats. If he lands on a bad team there could be some fantasy appeal but obviously take the wait and see approach. Williams is looking to join a contended as he's in his 13th NBA season and wants to make a run at a title.

P.J. Washington (sprained right ankle) is considered probable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets after going through warmups.
Washington looks ready to go and would presumably re-enter the starting rotation for this one. Marvin Williams, Dwayne Bacon and Willy Hernangomez will lose minutes if Washington can play.

Marvin Williams chipped in four points, four rebounds and two blocks in a start for the injured PJ Washington on Saturday.
Williams has always been able to fly under the radar for fantasy purposes and might be worth a look in 9-cat leagues if Washington has to miss time, but you should be able to find some higher upside guys on the wire in most formats.

Marvin Williams went off for 18 points, six rebounds, four 3-pointers, one steal and one block on Friday against the Bucks.
This was the first sign fantasy relevance we've seen from Williams in a month. It's not impossible for him to suddenly be a deep league play again, but his days of efficient numbers leading to late-round value are long gone. His success likely cost PJ Washington a larger role, as he saw just 20 minutes of action and put up three points on 1-of-5 shooting from the field.

Marvin Williams (nasal fracture) returned to action on Friday and quietly put up three points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 16 minutes of action.
Williams will need to get his legs back before he can be worth a pickup in 16-team leagues or deeper. He's not part of the Hornets' long-term plans, so will see limited and sporadic opportunities to sound off on the fantasy radar.

Marvin Williams (nasal fracture) is available to play for the Hornets on Friday.
Williams, who was originally listed as questionable, will be able to give it a go. He's going to provide deep-league value as a backup PF for the Hornets.
