Not a great start to the year with players already getting dinged up and missing time due to Covid. Ugh..


Chris Grenham: Ime Udoka says Payton Pritchard got his nose reset today and he’ll be good to go through non-contact drills at practice over the next few days.

John Karalis: Robert Williams is out tonight with right knee tendinopathy … I know it as patellar tendinitis, or jumper’s knee. 17 hours ago – via Twitter

I think there is a lot of overreaction to Rob's condition (jumper's knee).  Pretty common, not really serious.  Needs rest for a few days.  Plus a good stretch regimen is very effective in preventing recurrence. I'm not a medical guy, just someone who battled this back in HS during my playing days.

Issue is, he’s chronically dealing with one injury or another. Going on 3 years now. I don’t think his body can hold up if he is playing more minutes as starter.

He averaged 9, 13, and 19 minutes per game respectively over his first 3 years.  Missed a good chunk of games each year.  Other guys ‘might’ be injury prone, Rob is injury prone.  Till he shows otherwise the operating assumption should be that he’s not going to have long stretches of staying healthy especially if he’s playing 25 or so minutes.

So if he stays on that trajectory, he should be at 24mpg this season?  :laugh:

I really like Timelord, but I have no confidence in him being able to stay healthy. I don’t think he should be starting, just not reliable enough.

The good thing is we have a number of people to cover for Timelord this season, with Al, Juancho, Enes and even Bruno.

I think a good comparison for Williams III is Tyrus Thomas, both stylistically and physically.

I know that I am in the very small minority, but I would have moved on from Williams III this off-season...if the right offer was there.

As a stop gap, Robin Lopez was available for just 2 million, as was young prospect Jock Landale and our 16th pick could have netted us Usman Garuba.

Some of the money is already guaranteed. $100k?

I'm really disappointed with Boston for doing this. Jabari was instant offense off the bench, something the Cs haven't had much of these last several years. I know he was never a great defensive player, but I think he tried really hard to improve at that last season.

“There has been some buzz that the Celtics are looking at adding another big man, given the uncertainty of Al Horford's early-season availability. Robert Williams' recent knee soreness likely factors in here as well.” - via Keith Smith
