Celtics injury report: Robert Williams III, Marcus Smart gametime decisions in Game 5 vs. Miami Heat

The Boston Celtics may not have any clarity on who will be playing for them for certain in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference finals series with the Miami Heat on Wednesday night until just before tipoff, according to Celtics head coach Ime Udoka.

With both veteran point guard Marcus Smart (foot and ankle sprain) and big man Robert Williams III (knee) both listed as questionable for the critical Wednesday night contest, Udoka shared some information on how the duo was doing after shootaround that day. Smart and Williams were “feeling better” but the former still has “some swelling and pain, soreness,” noting that they’ll both be tested pre-game to see how they are feeling.

On the other side of the matchup, no major changes have been reported with the Heat, though injured Miami guard Tyler Herro reportedly hopes to play through a groin injury ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne relates usually requires two to four weeks to rehabilitate, according to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson.
