The Celtics are a different team with Robert Williams in the lineup.
Sadly, he is quite injury prone.
Luckily, he is coming back.
According to Celtics Head Coach Joe Mazzulla, Robert Williams is returning “in the next five-to-seven days.”
The Boston Celtics are just 3-3 since Robert Williams suffered a hamstring injury against the Brooklyn Nets on March 3. But they may only be without him for two or three more games.
Head coach Joe Mazzulla shared a positive update Wednesday on the Celtics big man during his appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Zolak & Bertrand” radio show.
“He’s getting a lot better,” Mazzulla said of Williams. “He worked out (Tuesday) and hopefully will return in the next five-to-seven days.”
That timetable rules Williams out for Boston’s road back-to-back with the Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz on Friday and Saturday. But next Tuesday’s game in Sacramento against the Kings (on March 21) would be six days out from Mazzulla’s comments, so it’s possible Time Lord could return then if he continues to progress in his rehab.
