Get ready for more Robert Williams, better known as Time Lord, as Al Horford and Guerschon Yabusele remain out with knee and ankle injuries.
The Celtics announced Saturday afternoon the two big men won't play in the second leg of Boston's back-to-back against the Pistons.
#NEBHInjuryReport for tonight vs Detroit:— Boston Celtics (@celtics) December 15, 2018
Al Horford (patellofemoral pain syndrome) - OUT
Guerschon Yabusele (right ankle sprain) - OUT
Neither is expected back soon, as the Celtics intend to take things slow with both of them.
Fortunately, the team continues to get exceptional contributions from Williams and Daniel Theis in extended minutes. Williams recorded five blocks Friday against the Hawks, while Theis poured in 18 points.
The Celtics are riding an eight-game winning streak while giving precious developmental minutes to their exciting rookie. Not much to complain about the C's right now.
