Williams recorded 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 FT), 16 rebounds, four assists and a blocked shot across 21 minutes during Thursday's 113 -87 win over the Grizzlies in the Las Vegas Summer League.
As the Celtics roared to 4-0 in this blowout win, Williams kept rolling as well. The 21-year old showed some toughness by playing through a hip bruise, which should impress the Celtics brass as they attempt to construct a frontcourt lineup without Al Horford and Aron Baynes. Enes Kanter will be the likely starter this year, but Williams is making a case for a spot on the bench come October.
Williams won't play in Tuesday's summer league game due to a right hip bruise.
Williams had nine points and nine rebounds in Saturday's contest, so it appears to be a recent injury. It's unclear when the 21-year-old is expected to return to the court.

Williams put together a solid showing and stat line, pitching in across every category while doing work on the defensive end. While the Celtics essentially swapped Al Horford and Aron Baynes for Enes Kanter this offseason, Williams will nevertheless need to prove himself to coach Brad Stevens.

Williams (back) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Pacers, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Williams has been sidelined for five of the last six games with a back contusion, but it looks like he will be cleared to play Friday. Williams, however, even when healthy, has not been a consistent member of Boston's rotation.
Williams (back) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Cleveland, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Williams has missed four of his team's previous five matchups due to a back contusion, and he's not expected to return for Tuesday's clash. His next opportunity to take the court will come Friday against the Pacers, assuming he is indeed ruled out.
Williams (back) will not play Sunday against the Spurs.
Williams joins a long list of Celtics injuries on the second night of a back-to-back, and he'll be held out after starting Saturday's game in place of a resting Al Horford. With Horford out again Sunday, the Celtics will likely turn to Daniel Theis and Aron Baynes (ankle) for big minutes at center.
Williams, due to a lower back contusion, will not return to Saturday's game against the Hornets.
Williams suffered the injury on a hard fall. He'll likely land on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Spurs.

With Al Horford (knee) and Aron Baynes (ankle) both out Saturday, WIlliams will get a spot start. In 26 appearances this year, the rookie center's averaging 2.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 8.3 minutes.
Williams (illness) is not on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Hornets.
An illness has prevented Williams from playing lately, but he's feeling better. With Al Horford (knee) out Saturday, Williams could see a bigger role than usual.

An illness will keep Williams out, but he hasn't been a part of the regular rotation for the last two months, so his absence won't carry fantasy ramifications.
Williams is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Nuggets with an illness.
It's unclear how sick Williams is at this time, however more information should come out following the team's morning activities Monday. If he is forced to miss Monday, it shouldn't have much of an affect on the rotation as Williams has seen just 12 minutes of action in March.
Williams gathered two points, one rebound and two steals across seven minutes in Thursday's 126-120 home win over the Kings.
With Daniel Theis out (illness) and Al Horford seeing time at power forward, Williams received his highest minutes total since February 26th. The big rookie has played in only 28 games this season. When his number is called, it's usually to deliver rugged interior defense and rim protection versus larger opponent lineups. Look for his modest minutes to be very match-up based moving forward.
Williams had eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 118-95 loss to the Raptors.
Williams was a healthy scratch in each of the last two games despite the continued absence of Aron Baynes (foot). However, the rookie center matched his career high scoring total while making the most of his extended action in the blowout defeat. Baynes could potentially return to the lineup as early as next week, but until then Williams might be needed against stronger backup big men such as Portland's Enes Kanter (Wednesday) and Washington's Thomas Bryant (Friday).
Williams (back/illness) is not on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Bucks.
Williams had missed the last two games before the All-Star break due to back soreness and an illness, but the time off seems to have gotten the rookie back to full strength.

Williams will not play in Wednesday's game against the Pistons due to an illness.
Williams appeared on the injury report for Tuesday with a sore back, and now he's being held out of Wednesday's contest due to an illness. Williams, however, has not been a featured member of the team's rotation as of late so his absence will have a minimal impact on the team against Detroit.
Williams, due to a sore back, will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup against the 76ers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Due to injuries and the emergence of Daniel Theis as a backup center option, Williams has seen his role reduced over the past month. If ends up available Tuesday, it might only be in a depth capacity.
Williams (back) is available to play Thursday against the Lakers, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.
Williams has been cleared to return Thursday after sitting out Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers due to back soreness. The big man hasn't played much over the past two months, so he doesn't figure to factor heavily into the rotation Thursday.
