G - ATL
Lou Williams accounted for 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, five assists, and one turnover in Wednesday night's victory over the Suns.
This was Williams' highest scoring effort since April 20th, when he recorded his only 20-point game as a Hawk this season. Atlanta had an impressive seven players score in double figures tonight, so it was very much a team effort in a massive win against a red-hot Suns team. Williams was coming off three straight single-digit scoring games, shooting an average of 15.8% from the field. He doesn't get much playing time either, so he's best left on the waiver wire.
Atlanta Hawks SG Lou Williams (illness) has been ruled out Monday vs the Pistons.
With both Trae Young and WIlliams getting ruled out ahead of Monday's matchup, the expectation is backup guard Brandon Goodwin will likely start and see extended minutes.
Lou Williams chipped in 22 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3PT, 8-9 FT), three boards, two assists, and four turnovers in Tuesday's win versus the Magic.
Williams' 22 points accounted for the most he's scored as a Hawk this year. Despite the strong outing, he is only worth deploying in lineups if the team were missing multiple key scorers, particularly Trae Young.
Lou Williams added 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3PT) and two turnovers in Wednesday night's loss to Memphis.
Williams has now scored in double figures in four straight games. He hasn't offered much else on the stat sheet, but the point production has been nice. Williams should remain a decent hold in deeper leagues until the Hawks regain multiple key players.
Lou Williams contributed 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block, and one turnover in Friday's victory over the Pelicans.
Williams took advantage of the absences of Trae Young and Danilo Gallinari tonight, chipping in 19 points and dishing out eight dimes. But with the Hawks being so deep on offense, he'll likely have a hard time consistently playing like this. Williams will see the Warriors on Sunday evening.
