Celtics injury update: Robert Williams III should be ready to play vs. Nets on 5/25

Article Summary:

Robert Williams III may be trying to keep off his feet as much as he can to avoid aggravating his case of turf toe – a painful joint sprain of the big toe – so he can play for the Boston Celtics in their next postseason contest on Tuesday, May 25.

But, per head coach Brad Stevens, Williams “Should be ready to go tomorrow” for Game 2 of the first-round series with the Brooklyn Nets. “We’re trying to keep him off his feet as much as possible on these days away from the game, but he was dressed and went through more of the walkthrough portion of practice.”

The possibility of Williams playing in Game 2 raises the ceiling on Boston’s potential for an upset win given his outstanding defense and franchise-record 9 blocks.

Game 2 tips off in Brooklyn at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
