Boston (AFP) – Celtics’ third Robert Williams is expected to miss at least two months after undergoing Friday’s time-wasting left knee surgery during last season’s NBA Finals in Boston.

The team said the laparoscopic procedure to remove the loose bodies and treat the swelling was successful. He is expected to resume basketball activities within 8-12 weeks.

Williams underwent surgery in March to repair a torn cartridge in the same knee. He missed seven playoffs during rehab from the procedure, and after developing knee pain and later developing a bone bruise.

The five-year senior and strong defensive player averaged 10 points and 9.6 rebounds last season. But those numbers dropped to 7.6 points and 6.2 rebounds during the playoffs.

Striker Danilo Gallinari underwent surgery on Friday. Gallinari, who signed for his country as a free agent in July, tore an anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing for Italy during one of the FIBA ​​World Cup qualifiers against Georgia.
