Boston Celtics starting center Robert Williams III has not played a game since April 13th against the Portland Trail Blazers, missing the team’s last six games, only two of which have been losses.

But a casual glance at the Celtics’ record over that stretch doesn’t give you the same read as the eye test when watching Boston play in recent games. Something hasn’t felt quite right in his absence, and his return date has already been moved back once. Do the Celtics have a big man issue to be worrying about? And just how critical is Timelord to Boston’s postseason potential?

Did they make a big mistake moving on from big man Daniel Theis at the trade deadline?

The hosts of the CLNS Media podcast “Celtics Beat” Adam Kaufmann and Evan Valenti are joined by NBC Boston Sports’ Abby Chin to talk exactly these issues in their most recent episode.

Watch the video embedded above to get their takes on Boo Butt’s banged up knee and how important it is for him to get back on the floor for Boston.
