Late in Game 4 of the 2022 NBA Finals, Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III appeared to re-aggravate his surgically repaired knee, but according to Celtics head coach Ime Udoka, the Texas A&M product did not experience any serious issues with his recuperating appendage.

“He did not do a specific thing, so he doesn’t know when it happened” explained Udoka after practice on Sunday. “He just sprinted up and down one time after one possession and it was bothering him a little bit, and that’s why he asked to come out.” The Celtics coach acknowledged it hampered Williams’ play in Game 4, but had since begun to improve.

Per Udoka, Timelord is “doing better (with) the day off,” with the hope that the longer break between games has the same rejuvenating effect on his play.

Still, Boston will play it safe with Williams and test his knee before the game to ensure he’s not feeling constricted.
