Report: Derrick Williams could see increased playing time in Game 4 vs Warriors
According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, there are indications that Cavs swingman Derrick Williams could see increased playing time in Game 4. In his 35 minutes of playing time this postseason (seven games), the former Arizona Wildcat has averaged 2.7 points, with his highest scoring performance coming in the closing minutes of a Game 2 against the Warriors.
There are a few indications Derrick Williams will be in rotation for Cavs tonight. He's played 35 minutes thus far in postseason.

If Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue indeed elects to use Williams more, it would likely be at the expense of Richard Jefferson‘s minutes. However, inserting Williams, a player with an extremely high-revving motor, into the lineup could give the Cavs a much-needed spark. We’ll just have to wait and see if coach Lue pulls the trigger.
Game 4 is set to tip at 9:00 p.m., with ABC having live broadcast coverage. As always, be sure to keep your browsers locked on Cavs Nation for the latest updates as they become available.
