Isaiah Thomas Reacts to Report About Robert Williams’s Injury

Robert Williams,

Celtics centre, has been experiencing constant pain during the NBA Finals due to a knee injury. According to Yahoo Sports Chris Haynes ,, Williams was assured by the Celtics’ medical team that he is not at risk of injuring his knee.

A former Boston star commented on the report regarding Williams’s injury.

“Heard it before lol,” Isaiah Thomas tweeted. The former Celtics point guard may be referring to the way the team dealt with his injury that ultimately drastically changed his career. Thomas played for the Celtics from 2014 to ’17 during an incredible run where he made the All-Star team in both ’16 and ’17. However, that all came to a crashing halt after the ’17 postseason.

During the 2017 Eastern Conference finals, Thomas was ruled out of the rest of the playoffs with a hip injury that was later diagnosed as a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear. He was traded to the Cavaliers. The staff at Cleveland discovered that Thomas had been having issues with his hip for some while.

During a 2021 interview on the All the Smoke podcast, Thomas revealed he initially injured himself in March ’17, but the team told him it was a bone bruise and he played through it. The former All-Star has been moving from one team to the next and never being able to recreate his previous success on court.

“The only thing that I think [the Celtics] handled wrong was not explaining to me what the extent of my injury could be if I do play,” he said in 2021.

Thomas, 33, signed with the Hornets in March and appeared in 17 games for the squad this past season where he averaged 8.3 points per game off the bench.
