Rob Williams has entered a "return to play protocol," meaning his activity is being increased following Tuesday's meeting with a hip specialist. Stevens: "So were still three weeks away from however long away. Hopefully we get good news then."

Per Brad Stevens, the Celtics are still at least three weeks away from getting Rob Williams back. He will increase activities in the near future.

hopefully this is something he can get over via therapy

worst case surgery

because missing long stretches after playing 20 games, is not a NBA basketball career

Robert Williams has Clint Capela part 2 written all over him and this team needs him

Just comeback 110 percent healthy
Clint Capela part 2?? Thanks for the laugh 😂

Why are you laughing? His skillset is very similar to Capela. But coming from you I am not surprised.

Don't you remember Capela being a dominant second year player? Oh wait... he was barely a starter on a .500 team, despite being healthy

Get well, Robert..

It is safe to say he has a HUGE impact on the game when he's healthy.

If he comes back beginning of March, as Danny said most recently, he would get to play 23 games before the playoffs.  That is enough time to get back into game shape and be ready for the playoffs. 

If he comes back right after all star break, he would get to play an additional 5 games for a total of 28 games, which would be even better.

Call me crazy (that's ok ;D) but when I see RW jump I always imagine the 6 Million Dollar Man sound  effects..

He wont come back right after the All-Star break. Look for March 3rd at home against the Nets.  The Celtics have a couple days off in between games before then, so will likely have a practice that he can go through to confirm his availability.

Possibly he could be available 2/29 at home vs. Houston, but thats not really the team you bring back your 3rd string center for.

I am so pumped about his near return on or about March 1.  Worthy of a bump up.

Really have high hopes for this guy, especially next season.

Yeah. It's really a shame he lost so much of this year. I don't know if he'll really become great, but if he was the same caliber of player as Theis I would take that gladly. (I'm saying same *caliber*, not same player - he's obviously more athletic, especially vertically, but I doubt he ever develops the same court sense/consistent focus.)

Doing some research, I was really surprised by how advanced stats like Timelord. He leads the Celtics in both DBPM and regular BPM, and he's second to Kanter in WS/48. Of course, these numbers don't mean much isolated, but it is quite interesting.

Hes shown some ability to change games.  Made the Spurs look like they were old and washed up earlier this season. 

If that version of R Williams ever shows up for an extended stretch, look out.

So what happens when he comes back, after the obligatory few shifts when he first returns?

This year, the Theis/Enes Kanter rotation has worked nicely, and I'm not sure it will help those guys to give up 6-8 minutes each for the rest of the year.

He probably averages 10 mins a game. The occasional "rest/load management/cautious about an injury" off day for Kanter and Theis will give him some burn.

And I bet he takes like half of Grant's minutes.
