Boston Celtics power forward Grant Williams will slot into the starting five for Wednesday's season opener vs. the Knicks. Williams draws the start due to the absence of Al Horford (health protocols), although he has traditionally remained an offensive afterthought even when shifted off the bench. In 14 career starts, Williams has averaged just 5.5 points per game, with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown having a higher probability of seeing an uptick in offensive usage. Still, for those in search of a low-end DFS option at the 11th hour, Williams presents a solid choice; in the long-term, his hold on a starting spot remains tenuous.
Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams was held out for the second game in a row on Sunday due to a coach's decision against the Pelicans, signaling that the second-year big is out of the team's rotation. You likely don't have Williams on your rosters in most formats, but if you do for some reason, this seems like as good of a time as any to go ahead and drop him. Robert Williams III is establishing himself as the bench big to target in fantasy leagues.
Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams says that he has been working on his ball-handling in Charlotte. During the hiatus, Williams has been staying with Kemba Walker, so it's nice to see teammates sticking together. Williams has played at the power forward and center spot for the Celtics this season. Williams could see chances at the small forward spot if he improves his ball-handling enough. However, it's unlikely that Williams carries much fantasy value while the Celtics are healthy. Williams might have more value next season, but fantasy owners will have to wait and see.
The Boston Celtics needed an offensive spark on Wednesday, particularly due to the absence of Kemba Walker (knee) versus the Orlando Magic, and forward Grant Williams delivered. Williams came away with 13 points, eight rebounds and an assist along with a steal and two blocks in 22 minutes of action. The 21-year-old also connected on three of his four shot attempts from the three-point line. After receiving playing time sporadically to begin the season, the rookie has seemed to solidify his place in the Boston rotation, as only Brad Wanamaker played more minutes off the pine for the Celtics on Wednesday.
