The Boston Celtics were happy with Robert Williams III’s first start this season; when will it be the norm?

The Boston Celtics started big man Robert Williams III in the club’s recent win over the Chicago Bulls for the first time in the 2022-23 NBA season. The team (and their fans) were very happy with the result. Timelord helped the Celtics get a good start against a squad they have had their fair share of trouble against this season.

Still, some flat play in the win against Chicago suggests Williams has some way to go as far as conditioning and interim head coach Joe Mazzulla played coy with when — or if — the former Texas A&M player will become a regular starter again.

The folks over at the NESN YouTube channel put together a clip diving into Timelord’s starting possibilities.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what they had to say.
