After missing the Boston Celtics' previous three games with left knee soreness, center Robert Williams is available to play in Sunday's do-or-die Game 7 versus the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, Celtics coach Ime Udoka confirmed pregame.

However, Williams didn't come off the bench in the first quarter.

The 24-year-old, who suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee in late March, averaged 6.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in just over 20 minutes per game across five appearances this postseason. He started the first three contests of the Bucks series, registering a minus-7 in 71 minutes.

Grant Williams started in his injured teammate's place from Games 4 through 6, averaging 3.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in just under 28 minutes per game. However, he was a plus-18 in 83 minutes while often matching up with two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
