|Robert Williams: Monster night in win over Houston|
Williams posted 20 points (9-9 FG, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two blocks in Friday’s win over Houston.
The Scoop: Returning to the starting five after an illness forced him out of Thursday's game, Williams set a new career high in assists in just 26 minutes of action. He fell just a rebound short of a double-double, while adding his usual stellar production on the defensive end and hitting all nine of his field goal attempts. The Celtics are still without Tristan Thompson (COVID-19 protocols), but Williams has played well enough that it will be extremely difficult for Brad Stevens to justify benching him when Thompson returns.

|Robert Williams: Not on injury report|
Williams (illness) is not listed on the team’s injury report for Friday’s game against Houston, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.
The Scoop: Williams was a late scratch from Wednesday's loss to Dallas, but it looks like he will only have to miss the one game due to a non-COVID illness. The 23-year-old will likely return to the starting lineup, sending Moritz Wagner back to the bench.
