The Boston Celtics are set to take on the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night at TD Garden. Fans knew Jaylen Brown and Josh Richardson were questionable for the game, but did Williams say too much after shootaround?
Williams, according to Boston Sports Journal’s John Karalis, told reporters the Celtics need to have the “next-man-up mentality” against a tough Nets team. The problem with that statement is that the injury report for Wednesday had yet to be released.
“Yeah, people are out,” Williams said after realizing what he said.
Now we wait for the official injury report to be released to see whom the Celtics will be without.
Celtics-Nets is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
