Boston Celtics pivot Robert Williams will miss four to six weeks due to injury.
The 24-year-old interior player, who was a finalist with the Celtics but was unhappy with the team, will have surgery on his left knee.
When will it be time for the NBA to start making a comeback? According to ESPN’s reporting, Robert Williams will not be participating in the event since he will undergo an arthroscopy on his left knee this week. An intervention comes after a meniscus operation that was performed back in March. The absence of the Celtics’ front court is expected to last between four and six weeks. If that is the case, he won’t be able to participate in the opening game of the regular season. The first contest of the season for Boston? Beginning on day one, October 18 (during the night of October 18 to 19 at 1:30 in the morning), with Joel Embiid’s introduction of the 76ers to the crowd.
Robert Williams III, who was selected by the Celtics with the 27th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, has spent his whole short career wearing the Celtics’ jerseys. He concluded the previous season with 10 points, good for an average of 9.6 points, and was an active participant in the Massachusetts team’s run to the championship game against the Golden State Warriors.
