Robert Williams III

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams started Tuesday's season finale victory against the Wizards and totaled two points, 11 boards, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 29 minutes of action.

    Williams getting drafted to the Celtics was a match made in heaven. The talent is there, but he needed to get his mentality and focus locked down before being able to assert himself in the league. Throughout the season he showed his defensive and rim-running capabilities when he got the chance as he averaged 1.2 blocks in just over eight minutes per game. He was outside the top-300 in 8-cat and will finish around 275th in 9-cat, but he's more about the future. He should be ready to rock in a year or two when Al Horford's contract is up.

    Robert Williams III (lower back contusion) will enter the starting lineup for Tuesday's game with the Wizards.

    Williams is a cheap dart throw tonight with a starting spot and presumably plenty of minutes coming his way. Play him at your own discretion.

    The Celtics are listing Robert Williams III (lower back contusion) as probable for Friday's game against the Pacers.

    Williams looks set to return a little earlier than expected. With Al Horford also probable, Williams is far off the fantasy radar.

    Robert Williams (low back contusion) is doubtful for Tuesday.

    Brad Stevens said that Williams could miss about a week after getting hurt on Saturday, so we wouldn't expect to see him over the next few days. He's unlikely to be in the rotation when he returns, assuming Al Horford is back to full strength by then.

    Robert Williams (back contusion) could miss about a week of time, according to coach Brad Stevens.

    Williams finally got a chance to start on Saturday with Al Horford out, but after nine minutes he fell on a putback dunk attempt and didn't return. He's just a dynasty hold right now.

    Robert Williams went back into the locker room after falling on a putback dunk attempt in Saturday's game against the Hornets.

    It could be a number of things — back, hip, or even a concussion evaluation after Williams took a nasty spill. He was making his first career start tonight and hopefully he'll be okay moving forward.

    Robert Williams will draw the start on Saturday with Al Horford and Aron Baynes out.

    The rookie is a nice stream if you need blocks tonight. Daniel Theis offers a safer floor thanks to his all-around game but this unexpected lineup makes both players viable options in just about all formats tonight.

    Robert Williams (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Robert Williams played 20 minutes and scored eight points with four rebounds in a blowout loss to the Raptors on Tuesday.

    The Raptors led by 21 at the half, and the game didn't get much closer than that. So, Williams picked up some extra run in garbage time.

    Robert Williams is available to play in Thursday's game with the Bucks.

    Williams missed the final game before the break because of an illness. He's unlikely to see much playing time either way, but at least he's healthy.

    Robert Williams (illness) will not play on Wednesday.

    Williams reportedly had his back tighten up yesterday morning and he ended up sitting out a win over the Sixers, though it's unclear if that was injury-related or just a matter of the matchup. Tonight we have a more concrete reason for his absence, not that it will affect many fantasy teams.

    Robert Williams did not play in Tuesday's win over the Sixers.

    Williams was reported to have felt some back tightness before the game, and the Celtics never updated his status again. He's out of the rotation right now with Al Horford and Daniel Theis playing well so this doesn't have much impact on the fantasy landscape.
