Boston Celtics center Robert Williams is unavailable for Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks due to left knee soreness, the team announced Monday.

The fourth-year big man missed nearly a month from late March to midway through the Celtics' first-round series win over the Brooklyn Nets due to a partially torn meniscus in his left knee. He underwent surgery on March 30 and returned to action on April 23, beating the team's expected recovery timeline of four-to-six weeks.

Williams had averaged 8.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.7 blocks, and a steal in just under 24 minutes per outing through the first three games of the series. He's a minus-7 in 71 minutes versus the Bucks overall.

The Celtics enter the Game 4 road tilt trailing 2-1 in the series.
