Additionally, Malcolm Brogdon (personal reasons), Marcus Smart (right ankle sprain), and Danilo Gallinari (left knee ACL repair) will all sit out for Boston. Robert Williams, 25, is in his fifth year in the NBA, all as a member of the Celtics. He’s averaging 7.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.5 steals, and 1.2 blocks across 15 appearances this season (six starts). Despite missing the lion’s share of the early part of the 2022-23 campaign due to injury, Williams doesn’t look like he’s lost a step. In fact, he’s currently shooting a career-best 75.4% from the field. Despite the fact that Williams won’t play on Monday, the Celtics should be able to extend their win streak in Orlando against a hard-playing but inexperienced Magic squad. After all, the Celtics are road warriors, as they own the league’s best road record by a wide margin at 17-7. So, with regard to the question Is Robert Williams playing tonight vs. the Magic, the answer is no. The post Robert Williams ruled out vs. Magic appeared first on ClutchPoints.
