C's center Robert Williams (ankle) doubtful for Game 4 vs. Nets originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Celtics could be without one of their best defensive players in Game 4 of the team's first-round NBA playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets.

Third-year center Robert Williams is battling an ankle sprain suffered in Friday night's Game 3 win -- an injury that forced him to wear a walking boot. He's officially listed as doubtful to play Sunday night at TD Garden.

Williams was excellent for Boston in Game 1 when he nearly posted a triple double with 11 points, nine rebounds and a C's single game playoff record nine blocks.

He played 23 minutes in that series-opening loss, and then played 17 minutes in a Game 2 defeat before getting only six minutes in Game 3 before leaving because of the ankle sprain.

If Williams is unable to play in Game 4, the Celtics will need another strong performance from starting center Tristan Thompson. The veteran big man scored 19 points with 13 rebounds in the Game 3 victory.
