Robert Williams Faces Another Knee Surgery, Raises Concerns for Trail Blazers

Physical Problems Continue to Haunt Robert Williams

Robert Williams, the center who joined the NBA in 2018 with the Boston Celtics, is once again facing physical challenges. As a member of the Portland Trail Blazers, he will undergo surgery for an injury to his right knee sustained in the recent game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

A Familiar Struggle

This is not unfamiliar territory for the 26-year-old player. Throughout his time with the Celtics, Williams has experienced multiple seasons where he played fewer than 35 regular-season games. In contrast, he managed to play 52 and 61 games in two other seasons. Unfortunately, injuries have become a recurring theme in his career.

Uncertain Road to Recovery

The specific details of the required surgery for Williams’ latest injury are still unknown. Medical professionals, along with Williams’ agent Kevin Bradbury of Lift Sports Management, are currently working on determining the necessary procedure. Once this information is available, a recovery timeline can be established. However, it is anticipated that Williams will be sidelined for an extended period of several months.

Impact on Portland

Williams arrived in Portland as part of a trade that involved Jrue Holiday going to the Celtics. While the Trail Blazers did not envision him as a long-term asset, they recognized his significant commercial value and expected to receive something valuable in return. Unfortunately, this injury has disrupted those plans.

A Hindered Career

Despite Williams’ reputation as an efficient rim protector, his persistent injuries have hindered his progress. In March 2022, he suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee. Later that same year, he underwent another surgery on the same joint. It is clear that his knees are a constant source of concern and discomfort.

and his shot went wide. But, with ten minutes left before the break, Racing’s goal came. Nacho Sánchez took advantage of a defensive error by Legans and finished off a goal inside the area, making the score 1-0.

In the second half, Racing continued to control the game, without struggling and seeking to increase its advantage. Hber had a clear chance in the 62nd minute, but his shot went high. Legans tried to react, but the Racinguista defense remained secure and did not allow the Madrid team to generate clear scoring chances.


In the final minutes, Legans went on the attack in search of an equalizer, but Racing knew how to hold on and secure the victory. With this victory, the Ferrol team qualifies for the third round of the Copa del Rey, where a rival awaits.

Racing’s next objective is to maintain its good performance in the League and continue fighting to be promoted to the Second Division. Additionally, the team dreams of facing a First Division team in the next round of the Copa del Rey.

Coach Cristbal Parralo highlighted the attitude and work of the team in the match against Legans and congratulated the players for the victory. He also highlighted the importance of the Copa del Rey for the club and expressed his desire to continue advancing in the competition.

Racing de Ferrol continues its good season and shows itself as a serious candidate in both the League and the Copa del Rey. The people from Ferrol are leaving good feelings and hope to continue achieving success in the remainder of the season.
