Celtics big man Robert Williams hypes up return from injury on Twitter

Robert Williams sure seems poised to make his long-awaited return to the court.

The Boston Celtics big man has missed all but 19 games this season due to a left hip bone edema. He did travel with the team on its four-game west-coast road trip, however, and tweeted this encouraging message following Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Lakers:

Sounds like the TimeLord is counting down the seconds until he's cleared to make his comeback.

That return won't take place in Tuesday's game vs. the Portland Trail Blazers as Williams has already been ruled out for the entire road trip, though he may be available for Saturday's game vs. the Houston Rockets at TD Garden.

The C's undoubtedly will make sure Williams is 100-percent before he rejoins the lineup, but fans can at least take solace in the fact it "ain't too long now" until that happens.

Don't miss NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-Trail Blazers, which begins Tuesday at 9 p.m. with Celtics Pregame Live followed by tip-off at 10 p.m. You can also stream on the MyTeams App.

That's about as accurate as it gets.

As much as it seems Kanter is making the most of quarantine life, he's itching to get back onto the court. He recently expressed concern about the NBA season potentially getting cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, which especially would be crushing since the C's are in the mix for a title.

You can hear more from Kanter in the latest episode of "The Enes Kanter Show" below:

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

A virtual game of HORSE? The NBA certainly is trying to get creative amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a HORSE competition involving "several high-profile players," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The competitors would take shots from their home gyms and have to match those of other players.

Will one of those "high-profile players" be former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce? It's possible, and he wants in on the competition.

The 10-time All-Star actually could make a splash in the competition -- he shot 44.5 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from beyond the arc in his 19-year NBA career. 

If the 42-year-old ends up competing in the competition, the only thing going against him would be his age. However, if he's anything like Tom Brady then he'll be just fine. 

With the NBA season on pause due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a HORSE competition could be pretty fun to watch.
