Williams contributed seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three blocks, and one steal in 26 minutes during Monday's 113-100 win over the Pelicans.
Williams turned in career highs in scoring and rebounding while swiping his first steal and matching his best block total in this his first taste of double-digit minutes. The absences of Al Horford (knee), Aron Baynes (ankle), and Guerschon Yabusele (ankle) opened the door of opportunity for Williams, who thrived against a quality opponent. If the aforementioned trio is held out of Wednesday's matchup with the Wizards, Williams could be in line to see considerable playing time once again.
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 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.
