Oklahoma City Thunder center/forward Jaylin Williams is now officially available for the team's first in-season tournament game against the Golden State Warriors. The young big man is making his season debut after having to sit out the team's first five games due to a hamstring issue. He'll likely take away some minutes from Ousmane Dieng and Olivier Sarr, but Chet Holmgren will remain in the starting lineup. If any fantasy managers in very deep leagues are in need of some rebounding, Williams is a solid option and likely available on the waiver wire.
Oklahoma City Thunder center Jaylin Williams (hamstring) has yet to appear in a regular season game due to a right hamstring strain. The second-year big man is officially listed as questionable for the Friday game against the Golden State Warriors. He averaged 5.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists across 18.7 minutes per game last season. The big difference was that Chet Holmgren was out all of last year and Williams isn't expected to steal that many opportunities away from him. If he does suit up, the rotation shouldn't change that much outside of a small distribution change for backup minutes.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jaylin Williams (hamstring) will be sidelined for the beginning of the regular season. On Tuesday, Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault said Williams is dealing with a hamstring strain and he'll be re-evaluated in a couple of weeks. It appears Williams suffered the injury in practice and the team will take the cautious approach and hold him out for some time. Ousmane Dieng and Aleksej Pokusevski are candidates to receive extended playing time with Williams being sidelined. Between the two, Pokusevski looks to have better upside, but the Thunder are likely to shake up their rotation quite often this season.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward/center Jaylin Williams opened the 2023 Summer League action with a very good performance, scoring a game-high 21 points in a 95-85 victory over Utah. He was on a roll from deep with a 3-for-5 effort and finished 8-for-14 overall from the field in just 22 minutes of action. Williams completed his line with four rebounds, two assists, and one block. The 21-year-old had a solid rookie campaign last season and got better as the campaign progressed, even breaking into the starting unit. Williams had 6.2 points and 5.6 rebounds as a starter in 2022-23, but his shooting was inconsistent and that's definitely something he needs to improve. Monday's outing was very promising in that regard.
