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.

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 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.

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.
