Big Felt Is Awaiting Tests As A Celtics Star

Robert Williams has been the most consistent player for the Boston Celtics this season, both offensively and defensively.

However, due to a’sharp pain’ in the final minutes of the second quarter, the frequently injured star was forced to miss the Celtics’ second-half performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.

“Rob was sore in the second quarter; I’m not sure if he did something to cause it, but it was pretty tight at halftime.”

We kept him out because he was in excruciating pain.

Following the Celtics’ victory, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka told the media, “We’ll see how he’ll be when he gets tested and looked at.”

Williams provided the Celtics with a dependable and physical presence on the glass before leaving the game with an injury, grabbing six rebounds in 13 minutes of action.

Williams’ athleticism was crucial for the Celtics on both ends of the floor against a Cavaliers team that plays with size, as the team sought to counter Tacko Fall and Evan Mobley’s imposing presences.

Williams, who has struggled with injuries throughout his career, has only missed one game this season, the Celtics’ second game against the Washington Wizards on October 30th, which Boston lost.

In the absence of Williams, Enes Kanter fills in.

Enes Kanter returned to Boston during the offseason, but he has seen very little action in the team’s first 14 games, appearing in only three of them.

Despite the fact that Williams was unable to play in the second half of Monday’s game, Udoka decided to play the veteran rebounding machine for the first time this season.

“We went bigger tonight instead of going smaller with a guy like Jabari because they had a big lineup out there with Fall and Mobley.”

“It was a coverage we were in any way,” Udoka said. “We benefited with Enes because he came in ready to play and made an impact.”

Kanter scored five points and grabbed two rebounds in eight minutes against Cleveland in the second half, but it was his work off the ball that drew the most attention.

Kanter’s screening ability created space for others while also occupying the defense around the dunker spot, allowing others to attack the basket at a faster pace.

The Celtics go up 8 in the fourth quarter after a 15-8 run.
