Description: Timberwolves guard Mo Williams has stepped up his game over the past week.
Insight: Williams is averaging 13.3 ppg and 7.3 apg over the past four and should be expected to continue to play at this level. Starter Ricky Rubio isn't expected back for another four weeks.

Description: Timberwolves guard Mo Williams will start on Wednesday against the Knicks.
Insight: Williams takes over for Zach LaVine, who has started the last four games, all losses, for Minnesota. The Timberwolves are looking for someone to step up at point guard since Ricky Rubio will be out for several weeks.

Description: Minnesota guard Mo Williams started the second half of Friday's game against the Magic.
Insight: Starting point guard Ricky Rubio left with an ankle sprain in the first half, and it looked serious. Williams should get more minutes with Rubio out, which makes Williams a likely addition to a lot of fantasy teams.

Description: Minnesota guard Mo Williams will open up the season as Ricky Rubio's backup.
Insight: He played 24.8 minutes per game last season in Portland, his lowest average since his rookie season. In that time Williams averaged 9.7 points per game, 4.3 assists per game, and made 1.1 three-pointers per game. With Williams competing for playing time with fellow backup J.J. Barea, owners should target him late in drafts, or even leave him undrafted.

Insight: Williams was Portland's sixth man last season and averaged 24.8 minutes, 9.7 points, 4.3 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 74 games. While the 'Wolves roster isn't a finished product at the moment -- Kevin Love and Kevin Martin are on the block -- any trade would bring back players that will start ahead of Williams so he'll be a bench player regardless.

Insight: The Blazers have already locked up the No. 5 seed and have nothing to gain from winning Wednesday night's contest against the Clippers.
