Celtics' Robert Williams: Won't play Friday
Williams (rest) will miss Friday's game versus the Jazz, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.
Williams was deemed doubtful on the team's initial injury report and will indeed get a rest in the second game of a back-to-back set. Williams has yet to play in both ends of a back-to-back this year after returning from a left knee injury that required surgery and a PRP injection. That will likely remain the case the rest of the way, but there shouldn't be any concern for the playoffs. Blake Griffin will slot into the starting five Friday with both Williams and Al Horford (back) sidelined. Williams will have plenty of time to rest before Boston returns to action Tuesday against the Sixers.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Unlikely to play Friday
Williams (rest/knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Jazz, Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports.
Williams will presumably sit out the second night of the back-to-back after playing well in Thursday's decimation of the Bucks. It could be a skeleton crew on hand for Boston, as Jaylen Brown (back), Al Horford (back) and Jayson Tatum (hip) are also on the injury report as questionable. If both big men sit out, there should be plenty of minutes for Blake Griffin, Mike Muscala and Luke Kornet.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: To face Bucks
Williams (knee/rest) has been cleared to play in Thursday's clash against the Bucks, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Due to frequent injuries, Williams hasn't made the impact this year that he did in 2021-22, but he's still an elite shot-blocker and lob threat. Across his past four appearances, he's averaged 5.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 steals in 17.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Iffy for Thursday's contest
Williams is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Bucks due to right knee injury management, Taylor Snow of the Celtics' official site reports.
Williams will likely sit out at least one game during the Celtics' upcoming back-to-back set, but his official availability remains to be determined. If he's sidelined, Blake Griffin, Luke Kornet and Mike Muscala would be candidates for increased roles, though Boston would presumably run with Al Horford at center for long stretches as well....

Celtics' Robert Williams: Muted production in loss
Williams finished Tuesday's 130-111 loss to the Wizards with four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 15 minutes.
Williams has come off the bench in all four of his appearances since returning from an eight-game absence, and he wasn't able to generate much production Tuesday while failing to record a field-goal attempt for the first time this season. Since returning, he's averaged 5.3 points and 6.8 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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 ... See Less
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....
