  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Not on injury report Friday

    Williams is not on the injury report ahead of Friday's game against Portland.

    This was also the case ahead of Wednesday's matchup against Charlotte, but Williams was ultimately scratched before game time, as his child was born earlier in the week. Double check his availability before Friday's game starts, but it looks like the Celtics should have their starting center back in action. Assuming that's the case, Grant Williams will likely return to the bench.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Not listed on injury report

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Expected to play Wednesday

    Celtics head coach Ime Udoka said Tuesday that Williams (personal) is expected to be available for Wednesday's contest against Charlotte, Souichi Terada of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Williams was absent during Monday's 104-92 win over the Pelicans due to the birth of his child, per Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston. While he's expected to return Wednesday, Udoka said they don't want to pressure him, so they'll leave the decision up to the big man. When he eventually does return, he's expected to slide right back into the starting lineup.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Sitting out MLK Day game

    Williams is listed as out for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to personal reasons.

    Boston will be down two key rotation pieces for the start of its four-game week in Williams and Marcus Smart, who remains in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Williams previously missed just one game due to a personal matter in late December, and his absence this time around looks to be related to the impending birth of his child, per Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston. It's thus unclear if Williams will be back for the Celtics' next game Wednesday against the Hornets in Boston, making the 24-year-old a risky fantasy option in weekly leagues, given that the majority of teams are playing four games this week. Look for Al Horford to slide over from power forward to center in Williams' stead Monday, with Grant Williams the most likely candidate to fill the opening in the starting five.

On the season, the fourth-year pro is averaging 9.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 1.7 assists in 29.2 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Gathers four steals, three blocks

    Williams produced 14 points (4-5 FG, 6-6 FT), 12 boards, one assist, four steals and three blocks over 41 minutes in Monday's 101-98 overtime home win over the Pacers.

    The Time Lord was a major reason Pacers star Domantas Sabonis shot a rough 3-of-12 from the field. Monday marked Williams' 11th double-double halfway into the season. Coach Ime Udoka clearly preferred Williams to Al Horford, as the veteran Horford played only 23 minutes. Williams' perfect shooting from the charity stripe was especially helpful considering he's shooting just 62.5 percent from the free-throw line. Williams and the C's next travel to Indiana for a rematch Wednesday.
