Celtics injury report: Robert Williams available for Game 3 of NBA Finals against Warriors

Posted on June 09, 2022

BOSTON — Robert Williams III continues to be available for the Celtics in the NBA Finals. Williams, who’s dealt with left knee soreness, is officially active and will start Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors, per Boston coach Ime Udoka. Williams was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Williams has been banged up during the playoffs because of meniscus surgery and a bone bruise he suffered in the second round against the Bucks. Udoka has said Williams will continue to be day-to-day as he deals with the knee issues.

Williams continues to make an impact during the Finals, pending he’s able to play. The big man played in 14 minutes in Game 2, putting up two points, two rebounds and two blocks. However, the Warriors have done well against the double big lineup, so it’ll be curious to see how Udoka adjusts for Game 3.

TD Garden will host its first Finals game for the first time since 2012 for Game 3, set for 9 p.m. Wednesday.
