Update: Williams is available to return in Game 3 against the Bucks. This is a huge boost for the Celtics defensively, as they hope to overcome a double-digit deficit against Milwaukee. The center already made a nice recovery from a meniscus injury, so fortunately he will not have to miss extended time with this face injury. We’ll see how much run he gets in his return.

Williams came back from a meniscus injury in the series against the Nets, which provided a big boost for the Celtics in the sweep. He is considered a huge piece to their defense in this series against the Bucks and will be a significant absence if he’s unable to continue in this game.
