The Boston Celtics are continuing their winning ways from the previous campaign. With a 10-3 record so far this season, Jayson Tatum and the company have definitely established themselves as one of the top teams in the NBA. Additionally, it’s important to remember that Robert Williams, their starting center, isn’t participating in any of this.
After undergoing surgery on his left knee during the summer, Williams is still on the sidelines. The 25-year-return-old’s date is now getting closer after first being given an 8–12 week timeline.
Recently, interim head coach Joe Mazella gave a timely report on the condition of the coveted big man for the Celtics. Williams’ return to action has been eagerly awaited, but Boston hasn’t yet given a particular goal date. However, it sounds like he’s making great progress in that direction (h/t Cameron Tabatabaie of Celtics Wire):
As far as where he is, no schedule has changed, according to Mozilla. He’s doing well and is mentally quite upbeat. He’s doing a fantastic job with his rehabilitation; it’s wonderful to see him out there and making progress.
Although it doesn’t appear that Williams will be making a comeback anytime soon, there is still cause for celebration among Celtics supporters. He appears to belong back in the lineup closer to Christmas at this time. Although that is still quite a ways off, Boston has been performing admirably even without their main center. The Celtics will only get better moving forward.
