Fantasy Basketball Add Alert - Devin Harris Out Two More Weeks, Grab Marcus Williams

ESPN is reporting that PG Devin Harris will miss at least two more weeks before joining his new team, the New Jersey Nets.

Fantasy Impact

With Harris out for at least two weeks, Marcus Williams becomes the unquestioned starting point guard in New Jersey for a minimum of the next 7-8 games. Williams is an excellent passer and an unselfish playmaker at point guard with the ability to tally double-digit assist numbers. In addition, he can help fantasy teams in three pointers and scoring while shooting a high percentage from the free throw line (86% career FT shooter).

Williams has PG and SG eligibility and should be looking at 30+ minutes a night over the next 2 weeks. Expect averages of 12 points and 6-8 assists a night from Williams along with a three pointer and steal making him an excellent short-term option at point guard. Further, if Vince Carter is traded by the deadline, Williams will have added scoring opportunities and could see a rise in his point production.
