Robert Williams III says his left knee tendinitis is feeling better, but there's no timeframe for when he will return to action for the Boston Celtics. The tendinitis was aggravated following a knee-on-knee collision in Boston's summer league opener against Philadelphia on Friday. While it's not considered something that will sideline him for a significant amount of time, it is something that the Celtics know they have to stay on top of to ensure that it doesn't become a major issue in the future.

The 6-foot-4 guard has reportedly been upset and bothered by the lack of attention being paid to him by the Boston Celtics, well aware they will have a chance to match any offer received by Smart. Sacramento's interest stems in part from having a roster that has struggled mightily when it comes to defending shooters on various points on the floor.
