Updated (Monday, May 23, 5:55 p.m. ET): Robert Williams is expected to be active for Game 4. There's no word on if he'll be on a minutes restriction, but expect the big man to suit up tonight.

Boston Celtics center Robert Williams' availability has been spotty throughout the 2021-22 NBA Playoffs. Knee injuries have sidelined him in seven of Boston's 14 postseason games so far, including Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

With Williams being such an important part of the Celtics' frontcourt, it's only natural for fans to wonder about his status heading into Game 4 against the Miami Heat on Monday.

Robert Williams has been listed as questionable for Game 4 tonight and will be a true game-time decision, according to NBA insider Shams Charania.

Robert Williams Injury Update

Celtics head coach Ime Udoka told reporters on Saturday that Williams is "truly day-to-day" and that his knee injury will likely last the remainder of the playoffs. The Celtics will simply be careful and monitor the situation going forward, doing what they can to prevent it from becoming worse.
