Celtics’ Robert Williams shares hilarious thought on returning from injury
Boston Celtics second-year big man Robert Williams has been out with a hip injury for over two months. After missing the last 35 games for the Celtics, Williams is set to return sometime at the beginning of March.
Being out for so long, Williams is itching to get back on the court.
Robert Williams admits he’s getting anxious to return.
"I want to windmill every time I dunk but I've still got to be cautious a little bit, you know what I'm saying?”
(No, we actually have no idea what it must feel like to want to windmill every dunk. Or any dunk.)

In the 19 games that he has played, the former Texas A&M star has shown flashes that show why the Celtics drafted him with the 27th overall pick in 2018.
Averaging 3.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game may not seem like much but Williams is shooting an efficient 67.3 percent from the floor and playing just 14.2 minutes per game.
In his absence, the Celtics have had to rely on Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter and while the two have filled their roles well, Boston is certainly missing their shot-blocking young big man.
Williams’ return will give the Celtics much needed depth at power forward and center while giving the team an infusion of rim protection and high-flying dunks.
