Robert Williams undergoes knee surgery, out 8-12 weeks…4:42 PM

With Rob Williams now out 8-12 weeks for what appears to be a major surgery instead of a “cleanup,” it certainly appears that the idea he couldn’t make it any worse by playing on it during the playoffs was……not correct. – 2:53 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
New: Robert Williams’ recovery timeline will be quite a bit longer than originally reported after undergoing knee surgery this week…2:41 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Robert Williams III was my DPOY pick for this season. I think with him out, I’d lean Rudy Gobert for No. 4, but I don’t feel especially confident in any single player. – 2:08 PM

#Celtics say after surgery today, Robert Williams will resume basketball activities in two to three months. Don’t think he’ll play in this calendar year. – 2:05 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Rob Williams and Danilo Gallinari underwent knee surgery today. Williams has been ruled out 8-12 weeks because they had to remove loose bodies and address swelling, twice the initially expected timeframe. Gallinari was not given a timeframe but is likely out for the season. – 2:05 PM

8-12 weeks means Rob Williams returns somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas. – 2:05 PM

Jay King: Despite Robert Williams’s knee procedure, I was told the Celtics are not planning to sign one of the big-name veteran centers still available. Expect them to replace the recently waived Bruno Caboclo with another young big man to compete for a spot in training camp. -via Twitter @ByJayKing / September 21, 2022
