  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Agrees to contract extension

    Williams inked a four-year, $54 million contract extension with the Celtics on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Williams' deal with Boston will allow the 23-year-old to continue to develop alongside the Celtics' young core of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The center is coming off his best season yet as the dominant rim protector averaged 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.8 blocks in only 18.9 minutes. The Celtics will likely end up with a three-man rotation at center, where Williams will compete with Enes Kanter and Al Horford for minutes.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Unlikely to play Tuesday

    Williams (ankle) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Nets.

    The 23-year-old sprained his left ankle during Game 3 and sat out Game 4 on Sunday, and he's not expected to retake the court for Tuesday's potential elimination game. Kemba Walker (knee) is also doubtful after sitting out Game 4. Tristan Thompson should handle the bulk of the work at center for the Celtics with Williams sidelined.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Won't play in Game 4

    Williams (ankle) will not play in Sunday's Game 4 against the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    As anticipated, the Celtics will be without both Williams and Kemba Walker (knee) after both players were deemed "doubtful" earlier in the day. Williams was in a walking boot after tweaking his ankle in Game 3, so there's a decent chance he could remain out for Tuesday's Game 5 back in Brooklyn.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Could be extension candidate

    The Celtics may look to offer Williams an extension during the offseason as he heads into the final year of his rookie deal, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Boston may have fallen short Saturday in Game 1 of its first-round playoff matchup with Brooklyn, but Williams was at the center of an impressive overall defensive effort by the Celtics, who limited the high-powered Nets offense to 104 points. Even though he was playing at less than 100 percent after aggravating a toe injury four days earlier in the Celtics' play-in win over the Wizards, Williams was a menace near the rim in Game 1. Williams recorded a career-high and franchise-record nine rejections in the loss, adding 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 FT) and nine boards over 23 minutes. That sort of eye-popping line would seem to make Williams a cornerstone piece for Boston, but the team could still have some hesitancy about keeping him in the fold long term due to his injury history. Though he's been a game-changing defensive presence when he's been able to take the floor, Williams has missed 113 of a possible 236 career regular-season games due to injury, with hip issues in particular proving troublesome for the 23-year-old.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Available Saturday

    Williams (foot) is available for Game 1 Saturday against the Nets, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    The 23-year-old was considered probable for Saturday and will take the court after going through warmups. Williams has started in four of his last five appearances, but Tristan Thompson will start Game 1 as the pair figures to split time at center.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Expected to play in Game 1

    Williams (foot) is expected to play in Saturday's Game 1 against the Nets, Shams Charania of Stadium reports.

    Despite not practicing Thursday or Friday, the center will likely give it a go for the start of the playoffs. It's unclear if he'll start, but there's a good chance he'll end up splitting time with Tristan Thompson regardless of who gets the nod. In 18.9 minutes per game this season, Williams has averaged 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.8 assists.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Uncertain for series opener

    Celtics general manager Danny Ainge admitted Thursday that he's uncertain if Williams (foot) will be available for the start of Boston's first-round playoff series with the Nets, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports. "He's day to day," Ainge said of the center. "We'll see how his toe responds. Just take it day by day." The center did not practice Thursday or Friday.

    After missing the Celtics' final four games of the regular season while battling a case of turf toe, Williams seemingly aggravated the left foot injury during his 18 minutes on the court in Tuesday's 118-100 win over the Wizards in the Eastern Conference play-in tournament. With the victory, Boston secured its spot in the postseason and granted Williams some extra time to heal up, but that still may not be enough for the 23-year-old to gain clearance for Saturday's Game 1 in Brooklyn.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Out for rest of game

    Williams went to the locker room in the second quarter, but he returned in the second half. The pain was apparently too much, and he'll miss the remainder of Tuesday's action.
