Robert Williams (ankle) ruled out vs. Nets in Game 5 on Tuesday

Boston Celtics C Robert Williams (ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's Game 5 matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, per Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens.

Fantasy Impact

Williams will miss his second consecutive game against the Nets on Tuesday due to a sprained left ankle that he suffered during the Celtics' Game 3 win. Tristan Thompson will be cast into the starting lineup once again in Game 5 and will need to play a more efficient game on both ends of the floor for the Celtics to be competitive, as they will also be without Kemba Walker on Tuesday. Jayson Tatum could be a great play in DFS contests during Tuesday's three-game slate, as he already put up 50 points once in the series.

Robert Williams (ankle) remains doubtful for Game 5

Robert Williams last played in Boston's Game 3 win, but is now likely to miss his second game in a row against Brooklyn.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was a valuable contributor for the Celtics for the start of the series, but the injuries have just continued to pile up for the Texas A&M product. Expect C Tristan Thompson to see the majority of minutes with F Grant Williams filling in as a small ball center.

Robert Williams III has near triple-double in unusual fashion

Robert Williams III had just 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 FT) on Saturday, but nearly had a triple-double with nine rebounds and nine blocks. He'd also tack on an assist and a steal.

Fantasy Impact

Williams had been battling a turf toe injury, but it wasn't evident on Saturday as he swatted what felt like every shot the Nets took. The nine blocks will be hard to replicate, but Williams should continue seeing valuable minutes as the Celtics primary big man, making him a solid DFS play.

Fantasy Impact

This is somewhat of a surprise after Williams missed practice on Thursday and Friday after re-aggravating his toe injury in last Tuesday's play-in game against Washington.
