  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Ruled out

    Williams (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    Williams has been downgraded from questionable to out and will miss his first game of the season. In Williams' absence, Nick Richards, who recently returned from a six-game absence due to a concussion, will likely start at center. However, Charlotte may opt to run out some smaller lineups with P.J. Washington or Miles Bridges at the five.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Iffy against Chicago

    Williams is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Bulls due to a low back contusion.

    Williams has enjoyed a strong sophomore campaign, averaging a double-double across his first 18 appearances. However, he is in danger of missing his first game of the season due to a back injury. If Williams is ruled out, Nick Richards would likely receive extended minutes.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Double-doubles in loss

    Williams logged 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds and one steal over 25 minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 loss to New York.

    Williams produced a serviceable line in the loss, turning in his seventh double-double of the season. Despite playing only 26.7 minutes per game, it's been a relatively strong start to his sophomore campaign. Averaging 13.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.9 combined steals and blocks, Williams has been a top-50 player thus far. His value is heavily reliant on rebounds and efficiency, making him a must-roster player, albeit geared towards specific builds.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Clutch in win

    Williams supplied 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-2 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 121-118 overtime victory over Boston.

    Williams has been an inconsistent producer for Charlotte this season, but he has stepped up in recent games against Boston and Milwaukee. Totaling 29 points and 32 rebounds against the Eastern Conference powerhouses, Williams is demonstrating the ability to anchor the paint, even if his defensive versatility is lacking. However, his three blocks Monday marked a season high, so he is showing improvement on that end of the court.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Double-double in loss

    Williams supplied 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 32 minutes during Friday's 130-99 loss to Milwaukee.

    The second-year center produced his fourth double-double in 11 games to begin the season while scoring in double digits for the seventh straight contest. Williams has been arguably the most reliable Hornet this year aside from LaMelo Ball, and during that seven-game stretch he's averaging 16.1 points, 10.7 boards and 1.5 steals-plus-blocks while shooting an eye-popping 71.4 percent from the floor.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Efficient despite loss

    Williams ended Sunday's 129-107 loss to the Knicks with 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals over 23 minutes.

    Williams didn't have his best game, as he's capable of dominating the glass and putting up more points, but at least he was efficient -- he missed only one shot from the field. At the very least, the second-year big man extended his double-digit scoring run to five games, and he also has two double-doubles in that span.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Monster night in win

    Williams posted 21 points (10-19 FG, 1-2 FT), 20 rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes during Friday's 124-117 win over Washington.

    Williams 24 rebounds were a career-high mark en route to his first career 20-20 game. The huge effort was enough to get over his lack of blocks, as the big man continues to excel early in the season. He is now averaging 15.4 points, 9.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks across 25.6 minutes in eight games this season. He is also shooting a remarkable 72.1 percent from the floor. If the second-year center can start seeing more minutes, his future looks bright with Charlotte's young squad.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Perfect from field again

    Williams produced 19 points (8-8 FG, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes during Sunday's 124-118 loss to the Mavericks.

    Williams is becoming an efficiency darling, connecting on 28 of 32 shots over his last four games. Notably, Charlotte relied on Nick Richards (12 points, nine rebounds, 21 minutes) for chunks of the second half. Williams is demonstrating that he can boom even without the lion's share of the minutes.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Scores career-high 27

    Williams produced 27 points (9-12 FG, 9-9 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two steals in 30 minutes during Saturday's 125-124 win over the Pacers.

    Williams posted a career-best scoring night while being perfect at the free-throw line. The sample size is small, but Williams is hitting 85.0 percent of his free throws after connecting on just 69.1 percent of 2.3 attempts per game last season. The 21-year-old has been volatile thus far, but he's fully capable of booming if he continues blossoming as Charlotte's center of the future.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Team option exercised

    The Hornets exercised Williams' third-year team option Tuesday, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The move was merely a formality, as the $4.09 million salary he'll be due in 2024-25 is a relative pittance for a player who closed his rookie season on a high note and is viewed as the Hornets' top center for the immediate future. Williams has gotten off to a bit of a slow start through three games this season, averaging 11.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks in 24.7 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Promptly vanishes

    Williams contributed two points (1-4 FG), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the Pistons.

    Williams battled foul trouble throughout the contest, and the Hornets committed 23 fouls as a team. Foul trouble wasn't a major issue for Williams as a rookie, but it'll be interesting to monitor if a larger role changes that. He's a bounce-back candidate Monday against Brooklyn.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Big double-double

    Williams notched 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-3 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals over 30 minutes during Wednesday's 116-110 win over the Hawks.

    Williams' modest scoring doesn't do justice to the active role he served on the majority of Charlotte's possessions while he was on the court. The 21-year-old averaged 9.5 rebounds per game across his final 10 contests last season and could be poised for a step up in 2023-24. Backup Nick Richards supplied seven points and four rebounds in 18 minutes.
