Williams missed a month due to a meniscus tear in his left knee and has been working his way back. His return has not been without issue.
Williams has dealt with soreness and only played in two of the Celtics’ last seven games. The 24-year-old center is a big presence when he is able to play, especially on the defensive end. He averaged 2.2 blocks per game during the regular season and had 3 blocks in 19 minutes during Game 3.
Boston hosts Game 4 and trails in the series 2-1 to the Miami Heat.
