Robert Williams to undergo knee surgery that will keep him out early part of 2022-23 season?

- by

After grinding his way through the NBA postseason last year despite dealing with a surgically repaired left knee, Celtics center Robert Williams was able to take some time off and, he hoped, allow the knee to fully heal. But as training camp is set to get underway next week, Williams has gotten some bad news—according to a source, he will have arthroscopic surgery on the knee, which will keep him out for all of camp and likely into the early weeks of the season.

So, the Celtics battle for backup big roster spots just got a lot more important in the wake of this Rob Williams news. – 3:07 PM

Seems to me (not a doctor) that the bigger concern for the Celtics isn’t Robert Williams missing a couple of weeks of the regular season, but rather that he needed a procedure on the same knee just a few months after getting a piece of his meniscus cut out. – 3:02 PM

Robert Williams injury underscores what @Howard Beck and I discussed on the pod last week: Boston could use another big. Dwight Howard makes a lot of sense. bit.ly/2w1G5e22:36 PM
