Robert Williams, Marcus Smart available for Celtics-Heat Game 5

The Boston Celtics will face the Miami Heat at full strength in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Following pregame warm-ups, Robert Williams (left knee pain) and Marcus Smart (right ankle sprain) were listed as available on the Celtics’ injury report for Wednesday night’s matchup. Both players had been classified as questionable.

Williams was instrumental in Boston’s 102-82 Game 4 win over Miami. The 24-year-old had 12 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes. Smart missed Game 4, but Defensive Player of the Year was key to Boston’s success throughout the playoff run. Her presence should go a long way in helping the C’s take a 3-2 series lead back to Boston.

The Heat are without sixth Man of the Year (bar) Tyler Herro for the second year in a row.

Tip-Off is scheduled for 8:30pm ET at FTX Arena. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. with Celtics Pregame Live on NBC Sports Boston.
