While Khris Middleton remains out (knee) for the Bucks, Robert Williams has been upgraded to questionable (also knee) after sitting out on Game 4 due to knee soreness.

Williams is still suffering from the same left knee he had surgery on at the end of the regular season.

While Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is hoping the 24-year-old plays against Milwaukee in Game 5, he has been increasing his play time and workload.

Before Williams returned to play the Nets in Game 3 of Boston’s first-round series, he came off the bench for the final two games averaging just 15 minutes.

The 24-year-old had a career-year during the regular season, averaging 10 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over 61 games.

What the Celtics would do without Robert Williams

If Williams isn’t able to make it to Game 5, another Williams will probably replace him making his second consecutive start- Grant Williams.

While the Celtics have a plan B at least, the 23-year-old sub struggled through Game 4 scoring only nine points off 3-for-9 shooting over the 25 minutes.

Daniel Theis, the Celtics’ other center also had a rough Game 4, missing all five of his shots in his only 11 minutes of play.

Boston will have to take it up a notch if they want to face the Bucks’ offensive power.
