LAS VEGAS – Robert Williams III says his tendonitis in the left knee feels better, but there's no time frame for returning to the Boston Celtics.

The tendinitis was exacerbated after a knee-to-knee collision in Boston's summer opening match against Philadelphia on Friday.

Williams left the game after just six minutes of action, scoring four points on 2-for-4 shooting along with two rebounds.

"Tendinitis is a terrible thing, but I want to come back as soon as possible," Williams said, adding that he takes it "day after day."

His absence from the last two summer league games only adds to a disappointing start for Williams, who was selected with the 27th overall selection of Celtics in last month's NBA draft.

Williams said he had a history of tendinitis in Texas A & M last season.

Although not considered something that will put him into the background for a long time, the Celtics know that they need to stay up to date to ensure that it does not become a major issue in the future.

It was not so frustrating for Williams that he could not play.

"It's very frustrating, everyone is out here, everyone is watching," Williams said. "You just have to do this during the hours of work, I have to support my teammates and help the team as much as possible."

The family of a teenager from New Orleans, who was tragically shot, honored him at his funeral by wearing a Kyrie Irving jersey and placing a video game controller in his hands.

Renard Matthews, who died at the age of 17, was a Celtics fan and enjoyed playing the NBA 2K video game. So much so that his family wanted to remind him of him this Sunday.

Matthews had taken his dog for a walk when he was shot and robbed of his cell phone, his aunt told The Times-Picayune. The police have not yet arrested a suspect.
