Robert Williams might return to Celtics practice sooner rather than later, according to Brad Stevens and Danny Ainge. 

Stevens spoke about the plan for Williams’ return during a shootaround on Thursday.

"If we can get him back into this fold and get him in that kind of rotating spot with those other guys, that helps our team a lot,” he said.

Ainge also talked about Williams on Thursday.
