    We're back to asking the important camp questions as the Celtics season quickly approaches. Question #5 is about Al Horford, and what he might have left in the tank.

    Robert Williams knee surgery: What it means for him and the Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams will need another surgery on his left knee ... the same one where he tore his meniscus at the end of last season. It sounds bad, but John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal says it's probably not as bad as it sounds. What this means for him and the team, who might benefit most from him missing a month, and why Rob needs to think a little more like an old man when he plays.

    Boston Celtics camp questions #4: Will Brad Stevens feel compelled to make an early move?

    We continue the 10-part series of Celtics camp questions with our fourth question: Will Brad Stevens feel compelled to make an early move? Under what circumstances would Stevens feel that a trade in December is better for the team? Is there pressure on him to make a move early if something goes wrong rather than to wait? John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm of Boston.com discuss that and more, including whether Danilo Gallinari could be traded.
