Is It Now or Never for Derrick Williams?

Since being taken number two overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Derrick Williams has largely underachieved. Certainly inconsistent playing time has been a factor due to playing the same position as All-Star forward Kevin Love, but his lack of consistent effort hasn’t done him any favors. With Love re-injuring his right hand last week, he will again be sidelined and Williams should get a bigger opportunity now. Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has suggested as much, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune , saying Williams “better be” prepared for an opportunity with Love likely out for 4-6 weeks once again.
