There is naturally always concern when a key part of a team’s rotation misses time due to a serious injury, so any lingering concern about Boston Celtics center Robert Williams III’s knee after quickly returning to action following a meniscal tear is to be expected and normal.

But such concern is not seen as something shared by people behind the scenes who ought to know whether that concern is warranted, according to new reporting from MassLive’s Brian Robb. The MassLive reporter recently shared that “there is no long-term concern about (Timelord’s) knee injury” in a recent article, with the Texas A&M product expected to be at 100% by the time training camp rolls around.

It looks as if some preventative work is being done to strengthen Williams to protect him from future injuries as well, with Robb noting the Boston big man’s recent Instagram posts on his training hint at such a strategy.

For a team that often struggled in his absence in the postseason and looked better even when the Louisiana native was practically playing off of just one leg, that should be welcome news indeed.
