Jaylen Brown, Robert Williams injury status vs. Sixers
Brown was unable to play on Monday against the Detroit Pistons due to a non-COVID illness. The good news is that the All-Star swingman has recovered in time for Wednesday’s bout, and he has now been tagged as available against the Sixers.
Robert Williams, on the other hand, is a late addition to the injury report. After being considered questionable to play with a left ankle sprain, the 25-year-old was eventually ruled out before tipoff, per Celtics beat reporter Jay King of The Athletic.
Al Horford is also out on Wednesday with a right knee injury, and he will join Marcus Smart and Danilo Gallinari on the sidelines.
As for the Sixers, they too have listed Joel Embiid as questionable to play with a sore left foot, so it’s possible that there will be a shortage of stars in Tuesday’s tilt.
Now as for the question of whether or not Jaylen Brown and Robert Williams are playing vs. Sixers, it’s a yes for JB, but a no for Time Lord.
