The Celtics will be without Robert Williams and Josh Richardson for Wednesday’s matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Jaylen Brown will be available for the Eastern Conference showdown.

It will be the second straight missed game due to illness for Richardson, while Williams will be out due to knee soreness, after returning to action on Monday night. Williams missed three games prior to Monday due to injury.

Brown played well in his return from a hamstring injury on Monday’s win over the slumping Rockets, scoring 19 points in 23 minutes.

Before the game, Brown was considered questionable, however he was upgraded to available prior to the start of the game in Boston. The Nets will be without Joe Harris, Bruce Brown and Nic Claxton.
