Robert Williams continues day to day with sore left knee and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s Game 7 between the Celtics and Bucks.

Head coach Ime Udoka said whether Williams plays on Sunday is a matter of pain tolerance. Big man Williams, who suffered a bone bruise in Game 3 during a collision with Giannis Antetokounmpo, has missed the last three games.

Udoka said the injury limits Williams’ movement when leaning a certain way, but Udoka doesn’t think it’s a long-term problem.

Williams missed Game 1 and Game 2 against the Brooklyn Nets, played five games in a row and has been out ever since. He has averaged 6.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in this year’s playoffs in just 20.2 minutes per game.

Sam Hauser (right shoulder instability episode) is out, and every other Celtics is available for the Celtics’ biggest game of the season to date.

The Celtics trailed in the series, 3-2, but earned a 108-95 win on Friday to stay alive and force Game 7.
