Fantasy Impact:

Williams received an invitation from teammate Kemba Walker to live with him in Charlotte during the NBA shutdown. He has been taking full advantage of the opportunity, fine-tuning his ball-handling skills learning from one of best point guards in the league. At 6’6”, Williams is an undersized forward in the NBA. Improving his ball-handling skills will only improve his overall game and help him see more minutes in Boston if he can bring the ball up the court. He was drafted by the Celtics for his overall basketball knowledge and high intensity on the defensive end, but he could increase his value in due time learning the point guard position from Walker. For the season, Williams was averaging 3.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, one assist, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 15 minutes per game prior to the shutdown.
