Robert Williams III News
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) is expected to be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks after undergoing an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Williams had meniscus surgery in March, which allowed him to return in time for the playoffs, although he saw a somewhat limited workload. While the latest procedure is expected to delay his return to action, Boston is hopeful it will have him available during the early portion of the regular season. Without their defensive stalwart in the mix, the Celtics are likely to utilize Al Horford at the five with an increased frequency, which could open the door for Grant Williams to play an elevated role once the season gets underway. Boston opens the regular season Oct. 18 vs. Philadelphia.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) is forecasted to be 100% entering training camp. The big man tore the meniscus in his left knee back in March, keeping him out for a substantial portion of the regular season. He did manage to return during the postseason, and despite receiving a minute's cap, he was still a solid contributor for the most part. Williams averaged a career-high 10.0 points in 2021-22 while adding 9.6 boards and 2.2 blocks. However, his inability to remain healthy throughout his time in the league has been a problem, so fantasy managers should plan on taking a suitable backup in drafts heading into October.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) is available for Game 6 of the NBA Finals versus the Golden State Warriors. As if there was any doubt, primarily with the C's one loss away from elimination, the 24-year-old is good to go after continuing to deal with left knee soreness throughout the postseason. He's reportedly had his knee drained several times recently, but after logging at least 30 minutes in each of his previous two contests, he'll likely see plenty of work on Thursday night.
Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III (knee) is questionable ahead of Game 6 of the NBA Finals versus Golden State. The 24-year-old continues to be burdened by a sore left knee. However, he played 30 minutes in Game 5, his second-highest total throughout the postseason, so he should be good to go on Thursday night. Williams has averaged 7.6 boards, 7.0 points, and 2.4 blocks during this series, and with the C's looking to avoid elimination, the former Texas A&M Aggie may continue to get plenty of work on Thursday night.
