Kenrich Williams News
The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed forward Kenrich Williams to a four-year extension. He has spent each of the last two seasons with OKC. He has played fairly well in a limited role, so the Thunder will keep him around. They've decided to give him a four-year deal worth $27.7 million. Williams has mentioned he wants to retire with the Thunder, so he might get his wish. This team doesn't appear to have any desire to compete next season, so Williams might see consistent playing time. Regardless, it's tough to imagine Williams having reliable fantasy value in OKC.
Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Kenrich Williams (ankle) is anticipated to miss at least the team's next two games due to a sprained right ankle. Williams was held out Monday against Houston due to the ailment, which marked his first absence of the season. A quintessential glue player for OKC's second unit, Williams is coming off having scored in double figures in back-to-back outings for the first time all year. It's unclear how head coach Mark Daigneault will allocate Williams' minutes, although it's unlikely to earn any specific player season-long fantasy relevance. Fantasy managers can check back next week to see if Williams has any update to his status.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kenrich Williams enjoyed another productive outing in a 97-95 loss to the Nuggets on Friday. Williams only scored seven points but added 11 rebounds, nine assists, a triple, and a steal in 36 minutes. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Theo Maledon both banged up, the Thunder have needed someone to step up at the guard spot- Williams has answered the call. He's played 30.9 minutes per game this month, with averages of 11.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.3 triples, and 1.3 steals per game in seven contests. It's a bit of a small sample size, and he won't play as many minutes once his backcourt mates return, but Williams can be a sneaky good DFS asset if Gilgeous-Alexander and Maledon are out again on Sunday against the Bucks.
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard/small forward Kenrich Williams has been elevated back to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Lakers due to the team's sheer lack of depth in the backcourt. Williams' minutes have skyrocketed as of late, having averaged 8.7 points and 7.0 boards over 32.1 minutes in his last three contests. With the Thunder rolling out just Williams, Hamidou Diallo, and Luguentz Dort in the backcourt, Williams will have significant DFS appeal. Having taken double-digit shot attempts just once this year, Williams still faces an uphill battle to season-long relevance, even if he is among the starting five in the short term.
