After missing game four in Milwaukee with left knee soreness, Celtics center Robert Williams is listed as questionable for game five in Boston on Wednesday night, per a team release.
#NEBHInjuryReport for Game 5 vs. Milwaukee:— Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 10, 2022
Sam Hauser (right shoulder instability episode) - OUT
Robert Williams (left knee soreness) - QUESTIONABLE
The soreness lingers from the meniscus injury that led to Williams having meniscus surgery and missing three weeks at the end of the regular season and the first two games of the first-round series against the Nets.
The Celtics bigs stepped up in Williams’ absence, with no bigger performance than Al Horford’s career-high 30-point game in a 116-108 win over the Bucks in game four.

Williams looks to return in a pivotal game five after averaging 8.6 points per game and 8 blocks in the series.
