Boston Celtics rookie Robert Williams said the knee contusion that he suffered at Las Vegas Summer League is “feeling way, way better,” according to ESPN’s Chris Forsberg.
Williams, who spoke with Forsberg at a rookie photoshoot in New York, also said he has been rehabbing the injury in Boston. He expects to be “full go” when training camp begins at the end of September.
Williams banged knees with a Philadelphia 76ers player during the first quarter of his first summer league game. The Celtics quickly diagnosed him with a left knee contusion. He did not return to summer league action after suffering the injury, though he attended team practices and went through individual workouts during that time.
Vegas summer league spanned from July 6 through 17.
Boston selected Williams with the No. 27 pick in this past June’s NBA Draft. He averaged 10.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 2.6 blocks as a sophomore at Texas A&M this past season.
