The Boston Celtics lost center Rob Williams to a left knee sprain in the second half of the C’s’ blowout win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Sunday night. Head Coach Ime Udoka gave an update on Williams and his availability for tomorrow’s matchup against the Toronto Raptors.
“Don’t know exactly what happened,” Udoka said after the win. “He said it wasn’t even a specific play that he remembers, but came out of the game, had some pain, obviously went back to get checked out and was in quite a bit of pain, and he’ll get scanned in the morning and we’ll know then.”
Williams had a strong 13 points on 10 boards before exiting the game. With the team likely without Horford and Williams for Monday’s matchup, they’ll have to heavily rely on both Grant Williams and Daniel Theis at the 4 and 5 to defend Pascal Siakam and Toronto.
“It’s too early,” Udoka said when asked of the severity of Williams’ injury. “He got looked at by the doctors, but until the scan comes back in the morning, we’ll know more.
“Quite a bit of pain on the lateral side and nothing more than that,” Udoka added.
