Deron Williams returns to starting role

Brant Tedeschi Feb 12th 1:14 PM EST.

Dallas Mavericks point guard, Deron Williams, returned to his familiar spot as the starting point guard.

Williams finished the night with 7 points, 4 assists, 3 steals in just 16 minutes. His minutes per game will rise as he gets his feet back under him.

Coach Rick Carlisle said it was an easy decision to put Williams back in the starting lineup because "D-Will is a better player". Yogi will go back to a bench role and still will see 20+ minutes per game.

Williams should be in starting lineups for the upcoming fantasy week and Yogi should still be considered a safe start since J.J. Barea is still sidelined with a calf injury.
