The Celtics could get an unexpected boost in the current playoff series against the Nets according to a recent report.
Robert Williams, who hasn’t played since suffering a torn meniscus in his left knee on March 27, could be on his way to a comeback as early as Game 3 or 4 in Brooklyn, according to a report from the NBA insider Shams Charania.
The “final decision will be made on how Williams feels day-to-day,” Charania noted.
The reintroduction of Williams would only add to the Celtics’ already talented defense.
As recently as Wednesday, before Game 2, Celtics coach Ime Udoka was still holding on to the earlier expectation that Williams wouldn’t return unless Boston advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs. After Williams’ surgery, the expected time frame for her return was 4 to 6 weeks.
“We still plan to play without him, but we’re happy with his progress,” Udoka said at the time.
Boston leads the Nets in the series, 2-0. Game 3 ends in Brooklyn on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday at 7:00 p.m.
