Isaiah Thomas criticizes the Celtics’ injury approach with Robert Williams

Former Boston Celtics player Isaiah Thomas criticized the team for letting Robert Williams III play in the NBA Finals even though he was hurt.

Isaiah Thomas is still missed by Celtics supporters, but he is convinced that the team does not want anything to do with him.

Aside from the fact that he could have been brought up on a 10-day contract in January, the Celtics passed on Thomas after instructing him to play through a hip injury and then trading him to the Cleveland Cavaliers while he was still recovering.

So, when the Celtics reportedly asked Robert Williams III to play even though he had a knee problem, Thomas knew what they meant.

While fans may focus on the injury and situation contrast, Thomas did suffer a season-ending hip injury against the Cavaliers in the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals. on the other hand, has been told to sit out, while Williams has been pushed to play through his injuries.

At some point during Game 4, Williams reaggravated a longstanding knee injury that has kept him out of the game for the past two months.

Both Williams and Celtics coach Ime Udoka are unsure when the injury occurred, but Celtics supporters are hoping that Williams will be able to return to help a Celtics defense that handed up a crucial Game 5 loss.

“He didn’t do anything specific.” He has no idea when it happened. He rushed up and down on one of his possessions and felt something. Udoka explained, “That’s why he asked to come out.” “Nothing struck us while we watched the movie.” It resulted in (Steph) Curry’s blow-by. In that possession, he couldn’t move very well.

Thomas, like Williams, was a vital part of the Celtics’ success — at least, that’s what he thought until he was moved in exchange for Kyrie Irving.

Thomas was a great player in the fourth quarter. Boston fans will miss him a lot, and he showed what will be needed in the 2022 NBA Finals.
