Robert Williams III drops truth bomb on his knee injury

Boston Celtics big man Robert Williams III struggled with an irritating left knee during the 2022 NBA Playoffs and as such there are naturally fears his condition will worsen as he continues to play.

Thankfully, Williams allayed those worries when he finally broke his silence about his injury. As a reminder, Williams underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee last March before returning midway through the first round of the playoffs. While he’s far from 100 percent healthy, there’s no risk of his knee deteriorating or re-injuring it.

The Celtics medical team reassured him that his condition depended only on his pain tolerance.

“My knee was really drained in the last series [in the East Finals vs. Miami Heat]Williams told Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes. “I stopped venting it because I didn’t think there was any point. My knee kept filling up with fluid. So I kind of learned how to use that to be able to play.”

This is certainly great news for Robert Williams III. While it’s understandable why he would want to play and help the Celtics win a championship, his long-term health is also paramount. Still, it’s not good if he risks his future just to play.

Williams is a key cog for the Celtics and there’s no denying his presence gives Boston a huge boost. Obviously the team will be counting on him to occupy the painted area and anchor his defense alongside Marcus Smart when Game 6 of the NBA Finals comes around.
