Shawne Williams gets defensive in Heat win (Dec 21 12:00 ET )
Shawne Williams played well in 31 minutes as a starter on Sunday, scoring 11 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
The Scoop: Josh McRoberts (knee surgery) is out indefinitely and could be done for the season, which makes Williams a great speculative pickup in 12-team leagues. His primary virtue is 3-point shooting, but he also shoots with solid percentages and racks up occasional defensive stats, as evidenced tonight. With minimal competition for playing time, it's hard to dislike his rest-of-season outlook.
Shawne Williams hit two 3-pointers in Friday's 105-103 loss to the Wizards, finishing with just eight points and three rebounds in 24 minutes.
The Scoop:Williams has all of the opportunity in the world with Chris Bosh (calf) out indefinitely and Josh McRoberts (knee) starting down a season-ender. He hasn't done anything with it so far but it wouldn't be surprising if he got hot so keep an eye on him.
The Scoop:Williams has been struggling lately, but he's a more effective player than Justin Hamilton and it'll be interesting to see how he fares returning to the starting unit. Chris Bosh (calf) is without a timetable to return, and Josh McRoberts (knee) could be done for the season, so Williams could stick with the starting unit. He's worth a speculative add, but he has a tough matchup tonight vs. Washington.
Shawne Williams came off the bench on Wednesday, hitting 2-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, four rebounds, an assist and a steal in 29 minutes.
The Scoop:The minutes were great, as he played just 19 of them on Tuesday. He's struggled recently, but with Chris Bosh out indefinitely and Josh McRoberts likely out for the season, Williams still has a chance to make some noise in Miami. Just keep an eye on him.
Shawne Williams came off the bench on Wednesday and hit just 2-of-5 shots for six points and one rebound.
The Scoop:He played just 18 minutes and has finally given way to Josh McRoberts in the starting lineup. It's time to dump Williams and find a warm body off the waiver wire, even though McBob has yet to do much of anything.
Josh McRoberts replaced Shawne Williams in the starting lineup on Wednesday, but hit just 2-of-4 shots for four points, zero rebounds, five assists and three steals.
The Scoop:The fact he's starting is intriguing and McBob should probably be picked up in deeper leagues, but his lack of offense and shots is a big concern. He should start coming around as long as he stays in the starting unit and picking him up now could pay dividends a few a weeks from now.
Shawne Williams will shift to Miami's bench on Wednesday with Josh McRoberts taking over as the starting PF.
The Scoop:Williams' starting job has been tentative ever since McRoberts returned from offseason toe surgery, and coach Erik Spoelstra finally decided to make the switch. Williams has enough potential as a 3-point specialist to be worth considering in deeper leagues as a reserve, but most owners can move along.
Shannon Brown will start next to Mario Chalmers, Luol Deng, Shawne Williams and Chris Bosh against the Magic on Saturday.
The Scoop:The Heat needs to bring Shabazz Napier off the bench and they won't play James Ennis at SG, so Brown is their only choice. If you're looking for a spot start, Napier is the better play. Obviously, Mario Chalmers should be starting everywhere tonight.
Shawne Williams played 25 minutes against the Clippers on Tuesday with seven points, three boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.
The Scoop:He has his fair share of duds and his output figures to have an inverse relationship to Josh McRoberts' minutes. Williams' fantasy owners should expect his fantasy value to have an expiration date in a couple weeks.
The Scoop:Williams is a blistering 26-of-44 over that stretch of games. With Josh McRoberts (toe) again struggling to stay on the floor, Williams has a real opportunity to continue making a difference for fantasy owners in the 3-point category.
