Williams has been one of the few bright spots for Los Angeles this season. The 29-year-old is among the team's leaders in scoring, and he also leads the Lakers in Basketball-Reference.com's win shares.

Lakers head coach Byron Scott has had a difficult time finding any sort of rotation that works well together. Kobe Bryant is at a point where he will need rest frequently to make it through his farewell season healthy. Julius Randle and D'Angelo Russell have struggled with consistency.
