It’s been a slow and aggrevating process for Robert Williams as he tries to recover from a left hip bone edema that has sidelined him for the Boston Celtics’ last eight games.
Williams provided a update on his health prior to the C’s taking on the Toronto Raptors on Saturday and said he no longer feels pain in his hip and is scheduled to undergo another MRI in about a week or two.
According to John Karalis of MassLive, Williams told reporters that the MRI will determine the plan of action he and the Celtics will take in regards to the injury. It was nearly two weeks ago on Dec. 16 that the C’s shut down Williams indefinitely for at least three weeks.

“I can’t do anything basketball related,” said Williams, as reported by Karalis. “I won’t be jumping, dunking or anything, so it’s messing with my head not being able to do anything.”
In 19 games this season, Williams was averaging 3.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.
