Celtics' Robert Williams: Plays 21 minutes in return
Williams (hamstring) totaled six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 132-109 win over Sacramento.
Williams returned from an eight-game absence due to a hamstring injury, but he was limited to just 21 minutes off the bench. The athletic big man hasn't been able to stay available long enough to carve out a consistent role, so he's difficult to trust in fantasy. However, whenever he's in the rotation, he's a great option for rebounds, blocks and field-goal percentage.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Won't start in return
Williams will come off the bench and play 20-30 minutes in Tuesday's game versus Sacramento, NBC Sports Boston reports.
Williams started in his last five appearances before missing eight straight games with a hamstring injury. Al Horford will likely be the only true big man in Boston's starting five Tuesday. Williams is averaging 7.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 assists in 18.9 minutes across his previous 10 games coming off the bench this season.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: LIfted from injury report
Williams (hamstring) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's contest against the Kings, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
After missing Boston's past eight contests, Williams appears ready to go for Tuesday's game. The 25-year-old center has appeared in 28 showings this season, averaging 8.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 blocks over 24.3 minutes per game. The likes of Blake Griffin, Mike Muscala and Luke Kornet will see their playing time drop off with Williams back in action.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: May return Tuesday
Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla said prior to Saturday's 118-117 loss to the Jazz that Williams (hamstring) could be available to play Tuesday in Sacramento, NBC Sports Boston reports.
After completing the second leg of a road back-to-back set in Utah, the Celtics will have off Sunday before presumably holding a practice Monday. Look for the Celtics' medical and coaching staffs to reassess Williams' condition that day before providing an update on his status heading into the final game of the road trip Tuesday. If cleared to play in Sacramento, Williams could come off the bench and would presumably be on a minutes limit after missing the Celtics' last eight games with a left hamstring strain....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Could return by end of road trip
Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla said Wednesday that Williams (hamstring) could be ready to play within the next 5-to-7 days, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.
Williams has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, the sixth consecutive matchup he'll miss due to his left hamstring strain. Mazzulla's comments signal that Williams will likely miss Friday's game against theTrail Blazers and Saturday's game against the Jazz, but a return to action early next week could be in the forecast for the 25-year-old....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Still sidelined against Minnesota
Williams (hamstring) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Timberwolves.
Williams will miss his sixth straight game Wednesday due to a left hamstring strain. Mike Muscala and Blake Griffin should continue to see extended minutes in his absence. Williams' next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Portland.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Remains out Monday
Williams (hamstring) is listed out for Monday's matchup against Houston.
It's been about a week since Boston head coach Joe Mazzulla said Williams could miss 7-10 days, but we've heard very little on his progress since. With Williams missing his fifth straight game, the Celtics will likely keep rolling with smaller lineups and utilize Al Horford at center.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Could miss 7-to-10 days
Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla said Sunday that Williams could miss the next 7-to-10 days due to his strained left hamstring, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.
Williams is already listed as out ahead of Sunday's game against the Knicks, and based on Mazzulla's comments, the center looks as though he could be on track to miss the Celtics' entire upcoming three-game week. Mazzulla added that Williams' minutes will be split up among Grant Williams, Luke Kornet and Mike Muscala, with Grant Williams probably representing the most appealing fantasy option of the trio. Through 21 appearances as a starter this season, Grant Williams has averaged 10.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.8 triples per contest on 49.4 percent shooting from the field....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Not playing Sunday
Williams (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Knicks, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Williams suffered a left hamstring strain against the Nets after an awkward fall trying to block a shot and was unable to return to action. His absence should increase the role of Al Horford, while guys like Grant Williams, Mike Muscala and Luke Kornet could see extra minutes.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Tweaks hamstring, won't return
Williams has left hamstring tightness and will not return Friday against the Nets, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Hamstring injuries are not something you want to mess with, so understandably, the Celtics will play it safe. Williams finished the night with six points, six rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes. If he misses additional time, Al Horford could see a slight bump in minutes and guys like Grant Williams, Mike Muscala and Luke Kornet could pick up the slack.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Strong all-around outing
Williams contributed 11 points (4-4 FG, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 117-113 win over the Cavaliers.
Williams was perfect from the field, active on the glass and helpful on the defensive end, as he had one of his most complete performances of the campaign. His fantasy upside is limited since he plays a secondary role on the offensive end, but he is still valuable in most formats due to his role as a starter and his contributions in other categories. Williams is averaging 9.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks per game since the start of February.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Back in starting lineup
Williams will start Thursday's game versus the Pacers.
Williams will return to the starting lineup for Boston's first game of the second-half schedule. The big man has started only 13 of his 23 appearances this year, averaging 8.8 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.6 steals-plus-blocks in 27.2 minutes during those contests. It's safe to assume he'll garner a similar role Thursday after getting extended time off during the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Not on injury report
Williams (ankle) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Williams was unavailable for Boston's final game before the All-Star break but will be back in action immediately following the layoff. He came off the bench during his last appearance and played just 13 minutes, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him reclaim a starting role and see more playing time during Thursday's matchup....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Won't play Wednesday
Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Williams was available off the bench during the first half of Boston's back-to-back set Tuesday versus the Bucks and will be completely held out of the second half Wednesday. Mike Muscala (ankle) will also be unavailable, so Grant Williams and Al Horford are expected to start in the frontcourt, while Luke Kornet operates as the primary backup center.... See More ...

Celtics' Robert Williams: Iffy for Wednesday's contest
Williams is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Pistons due to a left ankle sprain.
Williams was available for the first half of Boston's back-to-back set against Milwaukee on Tuesday, but he operated off the bench to monitor his workload and may be sidelined Wednesday for the same reason. Mike Muscala (ankle) has already been ruled out, so if Williams joins him in street clothes, Al Horford, Grant Williams and Luke Kornet would all be candidates for major minutes versus Detroit....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Limited work off bench
Williams racked up six points (3-5 FG) and five rebounds in 13 minutes during Tuesday's 131-125 overtime loss to the Bucks.
Williams was Boston's only regular starter available Tuesday, but he worked in a limited capacity off the bench to monitor his workload. Given the reduced playing time, it was always going to be difficult for the big man to submit a quality fantasy performance, so his production wasn't all that disappointing. It's possible the Celtics opt to rest Williams completely for Wednesday's matchup against Detroit, but fantasy managers shouldn't have any hesitancy leaving him in the lineup if he returns to his usual spot in the starting five....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Good to go
Williams (ankle) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Bucks, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.
This is good news for a Boston team that will be without Al Horford (knee) Tuesday. Williams' workloads are trending up, and he'll have his hands full against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks on Tuesday night.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Questionable Tuesday
Williams (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.
Williams missed a game last week due to his ankle injury but has been back in action for the Celtics' last two matchups and has averaged 7.0 points and 16.0 rebounds in 29.5 minutes per game during that time. It's unclear whether he'll be available for the first half of the back-to-back set ahead of the All-Star break, but Mike Muscala, Al Horford and Luke Kornet would likely see increased run if Williams is sidelined....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Double-double in Sunday's win
Williams recorded 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 16 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 119-109 win over the Grizzlies.
The fifth-year center continues to dominate on the glass, pulling down at least 15 rebounds in three straight games despite missing Boston's Feb, 9 contest with a minor ankle injury. Sunday's double-double was his fifth in 22 games this season, but it's the offensive side of his skill set that's been lagging -- he's grabbed double-digit boards in six of his last 11 games....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Says he'll play Friday
Williams (ankle) said he'll play Friday against the Hornets, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Williams was probable for Friday's matchup, so it isn't surprising that he'll be able to suit up following a one-game absence. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 11.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 29.0 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
