Grant Williams News
Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams finished with 27 points during the crucial Game 7 win over Milwaukee. The 23-year-old got the start once again for Robert Williams (knee), who didn't play despite being available. Surprisingly, Williams led both teams in scoring, thanks mainly to his mighty 7-for-18 shooting effort from deep. It's unknown how much longer Robert Williams will remain sidelined because of the knee ailment, so there's a good chance Grant Williams can continue to get minutes during the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat. He isn't a consistent DFS producer, but as evident by his effective showing on Sunday afternoon, he can get it going from time to time.
Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's postseason battle against Milwaukee. Robert Williams III (knee) will return after a three-game absence because of knee soreness. However, it's unknown how much work Robert Williams will receive, although there's a chance his presence could still significantly lower Grant Williams' DFS ceiling.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's contest vs. the Bucks, paving the way for Grant Williams to slide into the starting five. Williams III averaged just 23.7 minutes across the first three outings of the series, but he played an integral part in Boston's interior defense, averaging 2.7 blocks per contest. Williams averaged 10.6 points and 4.6 boards when elevated to the starting lineup during the regular season, having enjoyed a consistent role off the bench thus far against Milwaukee. Daniel Theis can also be expected to see an uptick in minutes with the Celtics thin in the frontcourt. Williams III's next chance to suit up comes Wednesday in Game 5.
Boston Celtics guard Derrick White and forward Grant Williams will move into the starting five for Monday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Both Marcus Smart (illness) and Robert Williams III (knee) are unavailable for this contest. White has been in a bad slump lately, but does have plenty of upside in the starting five. Williams has been hit-or-miss, so he's a bit more of a risky fantasy option. Both have possible DFS value for this favorable matchup.
