Top Robert Williams III News

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Downgraded to out

    Williams (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Williams was questionable for Saturday's tilt with a sprained left ankle but missed morning shootaround and ultimately will not suit up. Al Horford, Luke Kornet and Grant Williams are strong candidates to see expanded roles. Williams' next chance to play will come Wednesday against Brooklyn.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Inactive for shootaround

    Williams (ankle) did not participate in Saturday's morning shootaround, Bobby Manning of the Boston Sports Journal reports.

    Williams was handed a questionable designation for Saturday's matchup with the Lakers but may be leaning toward sitting after missing shootaround. If the sprained left ankle forces Williams to forego Saturday's contest, Al Horford, Luke Kornet and Grant Williams would be in line for larger workloads.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Questionable Saturday

    Williams is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers due to a left ankle sprain.

    Williams presumably picked up the injury in Boston's previous game. His final status will depend on how he is feeling closer to tip-off. If he is ultimately unable to go, Al Horford and Grant Williams could see some more run in the frontcourt.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Solid game in return

    Williams amassed 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 98-95 loss to Miami.

    Williams drew the start in his return after missing one game due to a knee injury. With Al Horford (back) sitting out, the 25-year-old saw 30-plus minutes of action for the first time all season. It marked only the third time he's scored in double digits during the month of January. Rebounds and blocks are what fantasy managers come to expect from Williams, and he delivered solid numbers in both categories as well.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Will start against MIA

    Williams (knee) is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    Williams is back after missing Monday's game against Orlando due to a knee injury, and he gets the nod at center with Al Horford (back) out. This will be Williams' sixth start of the season, and he is averaging 7.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in those contests.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Off injury report Tuesday

    Williams (knee) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game versus the Heat.

    Williams sat out Monday's first game of the Celtics' back-to-back set to rest the left knee, but the big man is set to retake his spot in the starting unit Tuesday. With most of the team's regular starting five slated to sit, Williams may be counted on for additional offensive output against the Heat.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Out Monday

    Williams (knee) will miss Monday's game against the Magic due to injury management, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    The Celtics will opt to play it safe with Williams after he hyperextended his surgically repaired left knee in the last game. Considering Monday's tilt is the first of a back-to-back set and Williams is ruled out for management purposes rather than an injury, fantasy managers can take a deep breath knowing that Williams probably will not miss an extended period of time. Grant Williams is the favorite to step into the starting five sans-Williams, while Luke Kornet figures to see more run.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Exits Saturday with knee injury

    Williams won't return to Saturday's game against the Raptors after hyperextending his left knee, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports. He'll finish the day with two points (1-2 FG), four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 15 minutes.

    Teammate Jaylen Brown appeared to fall into Williams' leg earlier in the contest, but Williams remained in the game and looked to be close to full strength. However, with Marcus Smart (ankle) also exiting the game and the Celtics down seven at halftime, the team didn't want to risk further injury to the left knee that Williams had surgery on in September. If Williams is forced to miss time during the Celtics' upcoming four-game week, Al Horford would see more run at the five while Grant Williams and Luke Kornet would be in line for more minutes in the frontcourt.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Considered questionable

    Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game in Orlando, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Though the Celtics attributed Williams' early departure in Saturday's 106-104 win over the Raptors to a hyperextended left knee, the center is appearing on the injury report for Monday with a listing of "left knee injury management." Given that Monday marks the front end of a back-to-back set, Williams is still probably more likely than not to sit out, but his questionable designation for the contest at least inspires hope that he'll avoid a long-term absence with his surgically repaired knee. If Williams is sidelined Monday, Grant Williams would likely be the top candidate to make a start in the frontcourt alongside Al Horford.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Records third double-double

    Williams produced 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Thursday's 121-118 overtime win over the Warriors.

    Williams was highly productive in Thursday's big win over the Warriors, knocking down five of six shot attempts for 11 points in the first half to go along with five rebounds. He added just one more bucket after the break but collected another six boards, three of which came on the offensive end, to notch his third double-double of the season. Williams has now collected double-digit rebounds in two of his last three, while his 14 points in the contest were a season high.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Logs 27 minutes in victory

    Williams supplied eight points (4-5 FG), nine rebounds, three assists and one block over 27 minutes during Monday's 130-118 win over Charlotte.

    Williams has now played at least 27 minutes in three straight games, an indication that he is slowly getting back to full health. While his production remains somewhat underwhelming, he is still the 73rd-ranked player in standard formats over the past two weeks. Assuming he remains healthy, managers should view this as his floor moving forward, a terrific launching pad for what could be a strong finish to the season.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Draws another start

    Williams is starting Thursday's game against the Nets, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Williams missed his team's last matchup Wednesday against the Pelicans due to a knee injury, but he's been cleared to run the floor Thursday and will draw the start with Al Horford (rest) out of the mix. Williams put up six points and added seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 23 minutes during his last start Monday.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Left off injury report

    Williams (knee) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game versus the Nets, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Williams will play Thursday after sitting the first leg of the team's back-to-back. The 25-year-old big man will likely enter the starting lineup with Al Horford (rest) out. Williams is averaging 6.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 1.7 assists in 22.0 minutes across his last three appearances.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Won't play against New Orleans

    Williams (knee) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Williams has been downgraded from questionable to out due to left knee injury management. Luke Kornet, Grant Williams and Blake Griffin are candidates to see extended minutes in his absence. Williams should be available for Thursday's matchup with the Nets, as the Celtics are likely resting him for the first leg of the team's back-to-back.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: May rest Wednesday

    Williams is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans due to left knee injury management, John Karalis of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

    Williams is coming off his first start of the season, which was in Marcus Smart's (knee) absence during Monday's win over the Bulls, where he posted six points, seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 23 minutes. However, the Celtics will likely continue to play it safe with Williams and rest him when needed. If he sits out Wednesday, more minutes could be in store for Luke Kornet and Grant Williams.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Quiet in first start

    Williams provided six points (3-4 FG), seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 23 minutes during Monday's 107-99 victory over Chicago.

    While Robert got his first start of the season, it was Grant Williams who wound up making the bigger impact, scoring 20 points with eight boards in 37 minutes off the bench. Boston went with a bigger starting lineup Monday while Marcus Smart (knee) was unavailable, but that's not likely to be the case against every opponent if Smart remains sidelined. Williams -- Robert, that is -- has seen a consistent workload since making his season debut in mid-December regardless of his role, playing between 18 and 23 minutes in nine of 10 games and averaging 7.7 points, 7.6 boards, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 assists over that stretch.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Making first start of season

    Williams is starting Monday's contest against the Bulls, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    With Marcus Smart (knee) unavailable, Williams will officially make his first start of the 2022-23 season. Throughout Williams' first nine appearances this year, the defensive-minded big is averaging 7.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.3 blocks across 19.4 minutes per contest.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Encouraging performance Saturday

    Williams logged 10 points (5-6 FG), 11 rebounds, three assists, four blocks, two steals and zero turnovers in 22 minutes during Saturday's 121-116 win over the Spurs.

    Williams remains on a minute restriction but was able to put together his best game of the season to date. While it was his second double-double thus far, he set season-high marks in both steals and blocks. It appears that the coaching staff is going to be cautious with Williams moving forward, impacting his overall ceiling. With that said, he remains a must-roster player, especially if what we are seeing is considered his floor. Time Lord has missed only one shot over his last five games.

  • Celtics' Robert Williams: Not on injury report

    Williams (knee) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Thunder.

    Williams sat out Tuesday against Oklahoma City due to left knee injury management but will return to action following a one-game absence. Over his last four appearances, he's averaged 9.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in 18.8 minutes per game.
