  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Good to go for Game 6

    Celtics coach Ime Udoka confirmed Thursday that Williams (knee) will remain in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 6 against the Warriors, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.

    Williams has played through knee soreness for most of the playoffs, so it's not much of a surprise that he'll make a 10th consecutive start as the Celtics look to even up the series at 3-3 on Thursday. He's averaged 7.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.4 blocks, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 25.0 minutes per game during the Finals, and he should see his usual workload in Game 6 with the Celtics trying to extend the series.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Tweaked knee during Game 4

    Celtics head coach Ime Udoka said Sunday that Williams tweaked his knee during Game 4, but Boston is "optimistic" he'll be available for Monday's Game 5, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    Williams continues to deal with knee pain since returning from nearly a month-long absence following meniscus surgery at the end of March. Despite the lingering issue, the talented big man has appeared in 15 postseason games, including eight straight. During that stretch, Williams has averaged 7.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks across 22.8 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Listed questionable for Game 4

    Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's NBA Finals Game 4 against the Warriors, Celtics team reporter Amanda Pflugrad reports.

    As has been the case throughout the series, Williams will once again be listed as questionable, but the expectation is that he'll continue to play through soreness in his left knee. The big man was a major factor in Boston's Game 3 victory, which he finished with eight points, 10 rebounds, three steals and four blocks in 26 minutes.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Makes big impact in Game 3 victory

    Williams provided eight points (4-5 FG), 10 rebounds, four blocks and three steals across 26 minutes during Wednesday's 116-100 victory over Golden State in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

    Williams was efficient from the field but wasn't asked to be a big offensive contributor. Instead, he impacted the game with his athleticism down low, swatting four shots for the second time in three Finals games and pulling down a game-high 10 rebounds. Williams is averaging just 6.0 points through three Finals contests as he likely isn't fully recovered from his knee issues, but he has been a big part of Boston's two wins thus far.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Playing, starting Game 3

    Head coach Ime Udoka confirmed Wednesday that Williams (knee) is available and will start Wednesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Williams will remain in Boston's starting lineup for Game 3 despite the knee soreness that's kept him on the injury report for the latter portion of the playoffs. He's averaged just 7.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 20.8 minutes per contest over the last six games, but he should see enough run in Game 3 to warrant consideration in DFS lineups.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Questionable for Game 3

    Williams (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors.

    Williams continues to be listed on the injury report with knee soreness, but he's been available for six consecutive contests. However, the center has struggled during that stretch, averaging just 7.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 20.8 minutes per game. The talented center will likely be available once again, but it's unclear how productive he can be while dealing with the lingering pain.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Shell of peak self

    Williams posted two points (1-1 FG), two rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 14 minutes during Sunday's 107-88 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

    Williams was on a 20-25 minute restriction, but he ultimately was pulled after far less. His shot-blocking prowess was again on display, but Williams is not quite at full speed -- therefore representing a liability against the gunning Warriors. His health throughout the rest of the series remains worth monitoring.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Good to go for Game 2

    Williams (knee) will be available for Sunday's Game 2 against the Warriors. He's expected to play between 20 and 25 minutes, per Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points.

    As expected, Williams will be available despite the fact that he's still dealing with discomfort in his knee stemming from a torn meniscus late in the regular season. The prevailing expectation is that Williams will continue to play through the issue, but the Celtics will likely keep listing him as questionable on a game-by-game basis. In Game 1, Williams posted eight points, six rebounds, four blocks and a steal in 24 minutes.
