Celtics' Robert Williams Will Play Limited Minutes Against Nets in Game 3


April 22, 2022

Boston Celtics center Robert Williams will play limited minutes against the Brooklyn Nets in Game 3 on Saturday, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Williams tore his meniscus back on March 27 and hasn’t played since. His return gives the Celtics a much-needed interior presence that they’ve lacked since he exited the lineup. Boston can put a serious chokehold on this series with a win in Game 3, putting them up 3-0 on Brooklyn. They’re looking to go to the Eastern Conference semifinals for the fifth time in six seasons.

Williams has averaged ten points on 73.6 percent shooting, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks per game in 61 starts this season. If Williams does indeed start, expect Daniel Theis to head back to the bench.
