Celtics Injuries: Update On Robert Williams’ Availability Against Wizards

'We're hopeful that he plays'


May 18, 2021

It appears Robert Williams is going to be a game-time decision for the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

The sophomore center was upgraded to probable on the team’s injury report Monday afternoon after dealing with turf toe through the last stretch of the regular season.

But with everything on the line a few hours before tip-off against the Washington Wizards, it seems there’s no concrete answer as to whether he’ll play.

Williams is available on the Celtics’ latest injury report, but in his pregame media availability, head coach Brad Stevens told reporters it is no guarantee he will start.

“Rob is going to go do his pregame shooting and everything else. He practiced yesterday, went through shootaround this morning,” Stevens said. “So we’re hopeful that he plays.”

Williams has missed 12 of Boston’s previous 17 games leading into the NBA play-in tournament.

The Celtics and Wizards get going at 9 p.m. ET.
