Re: Robert Williams, I’m always skeptical of any meniscus surgery timeline shorter than 8 weeks. And if he does come back faster, we’ve seen guys like Metta World Peace, Mo Harkless, and Brandon Roy who pushed back for the playoffs have major issues going forward. – 12:45 PM

The thing about this switching Celtics defense is there aren’t many mismatches to draw, which is usually the outlet to switches
The ultimate test to Miami’s new lineups and spacing tonight, even w/out Rob Williams

ESPN story on Boston Celtics center Robert Williams undergoing left knee surgery — with the possibility of a return in a month: es.pn/3NAZTYA8:32 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Four weeks would have Rob Williams back towards the end of the first round. But it’s likely he’ll need some ramp-up time.
Start of the second round seems feasible, but some point in the second round certainly seems doable.
Best news possible for Boston, all things considered. – 8:30 AM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
A 4-6 week timetable, per @Adrian Wojnarowski, is best case scenario for Robert Williams. Tremendous news for Boston, which can cling to hope that its shot blocking Center can return during the playoffs. – 8:28 AM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
So Robert Williams would be returning right around a potential Heat-Celtics series… – 8:26 AM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
ESPN Sources: After undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee this morning, Boston Celtics C Robert Williams is expected to return within 4-to-6 weeks – a timetable that could land him back in the lineup as soon as the second-round of Eastern Conference playoffs. – 8:24 AM

More on this storyline

After undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee Wednesday morning, Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III is expected to return within four to six weeks — a timetable that could land him back in the lineup as soon as the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, sources told ESPN. Williams suffered the tear Sunday night, but the extent of the injury allowed for a procedure that won’t require him to be sidelined for several months, sources said. -via ESPN / March 30, 2022
