Williams was recalled from the G League on Monday. Williams is back with the Celtics to provide frontcourt depth for Monday's game against the Pelicans with Guerschon Yabusele (ankle) and Aron Baynes (ankle) unavailable and Al Horford (knee) unlikely to play. He's appeared in nine games for the Celtics this season, posting averages of 1.4 points and 1.2 rebounds across 3.7 minutes.
Williams was assigned to the Maine Red Claws of the G League on Thursday. Williams has seen limited action recently while the Celtics dealt with some injuries, but with Boston's frontcourt now full healthy, Williams will have the opportunity to see extended minutes with the Red Claws.
Williams had four points (2-2 FG), three rebounds, and one block in nine minutes during Friday's 114-96 win over the Hawks. Williams made his fifth appearance, finishing with career highs in scoring, rebounding, and minutes while swatting his fourth block through just 24 minutes of action. The absence of Al Horford (knee) and blowout nature of the game were the main reasons Williams was called upon in this one. Nevertheless, the rookie continues to show signs that he could develop into a quality rotation player down the road.
Williams was recalled from the G League on Friday. Williams has gotten 15 minutes of NBA action this season, totaling five points, four rebounds, three blocks and an assist. He's expected to continue bouncing back and forth between the Celtics and the Red Claws.
Williams supplied 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 FT), 8 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 25 minutes in Thursday's 108-104 home loss to Raptors 905. Williams delivered an efficient stat line for the Red Claws. This was the rookie's second G League game. Williams was one of three Celtics assigned to Maine for a boost in playing time. Williams joins a Maine squad in need of size and rebounding. Before Williams joined the squad, the Red Claw roster lacked a player over 6'8". Maine will need the rookie's strong interior play for tonight's matchup versus the Mad Ants.
