Can Robert Williams Play More?

    Robert Williams is averaging only 15 minutes per game this season, though the Celtics say he's been limited by his hip.


    Robert Williams fell back to 14 minutes in Celtics vs Mavericks after shining in extended run, 23, vs the Pelicans into overtime with multiple blocks on Zion Williamson. After Brad Stevens announced the Celtics are managing Williams’ hip, Jimmy Toscano and John Zannis called the minutes restriction a cover for Stevens’ distaste for Williams. Williams played only 7 minutes in the first three quarters, before appearing with a block and dunk in the fourth and sitting the final seven minutes while Tristan Thompson and Daniel Theis closed in what became a Luka Doncic game winner for Dallas at the buzzer.
