Since his rookie year when he split time between the NBA and the G-League, Williams has seen a steady increase in playing time and production year-over-year when healthy.
“I had that firsthand against them last year in the playoffs, we saw the difference with him being on and off the court and in that Brooklyn series,” Udoka said. “So, we know how he impacts the game and the things he does for the team, it’s a matter of him staying healthy and just showing improvement and growth overall.”
Williams has dealt with injuries off and on, most notably knee and hip ailments in the last year.
Roberts could find himself with a solid chunk of playing time this year should he continue on his track.
