PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) - Portland Trail Blazers center Robert Williams III is set to have season-ending surgery, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Williams was acquired from the Boston Celtics in a trade involving Jrue Holiday in September.

The surgery won’t be a first for Williams who previously had offseason surgery on his left knee causing him to miss the start of the 2022-2023 season for the Celtics. Williams also previously tore the meniscus in his left knee in March 2022.

No timeline has been given for Williams’ return or when surgery will happen.
