Robert Williams III News
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III suited up for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals vs. Miami on Tuesday and looked as if he had never been sidelined. The 24-year-old recorded 18 points, nine rebounds, and two blocked shots across 28 minutes, the latter of which set a postseason high. The absence of Al Horford (health and safety protocols) paves the way for Williams to play an integral role in the games to come, even as he is matched up with Miami's Bam Adebayo. That the Celtics were comfortable rolling Williams out for nearly 30 minutes (right at his regular-season average) is an indication of his knee ailment trending in the right direction as the team seeks an NBA Finals berth.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's Eastern Conference Finals opener versus Miami. The big man missed three games during the previous series against Milwaukee due to left knee soreness. However, he got the green light to suit up for the pivotal Game 7 battle with the Bucks but never stepped foot on the court. Nonetheless, Williams could see a significantly reduced workload in Game 1, even if he remains off the injury report. As a result, Grant Williams, who had a game-high 27 points on Sunday, may continue to benefit.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) didn't play on Sunday during the postseason showdown against Milwaukee. Williams was upgraded to available ahead of Game 7 after missing his previous three games due to left knee soreness. However, that didn't matter, as the big man never stepped foot on the court. While head coach Ime Udoka remains adamant Williams' left knee is structurally sound, his absence for a pivotal playoff matchup isn't good. As a result, his status for the Eastern Conference Finals against Miami should be closely monitored by DFS managers heading into Tuesday night. If he remains out, Grant Williams, who had a game-high 27 points and shot an efficient 7-for-18 from deep, should continue to get plenty of minutes.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III is available for Sunday's postseason matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. The defensive specialist has averaged 8.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks throughout this series but has missed the last three games due to left knee soreness. Still, while it's good news for the Celtics to have Williams back for a pivotal Game 7, he hasn't played a lot during the playoffs, so it's unknown exactly how much work he'll receive. However, he may see the floor enough to take Grant Williams out of DFS consideration while also lowing Al Horford's fantasy ceiling.
