cut tile thats already been layed and grouted

hello to all

newb here...quick question...

we paid a contractor abt $4500 to completely renovated our master bath...long story short, he did an excellent job but went over budget and could not buy the tub and could not finish the job without the tub. He did, however, rebuild the enclosure for the tub.

fastforward to today:
my cousin works at a bath remodeling place and they throw away tubs and other things that have "problems" ie...the tub he gave me was brand new, still on the pallet, but had a chip in the white coating. keep in mind this is a cast iron tub. so anyway the dimensions SEEMED to line up but after lifting this massive 300lbs tub in place, it actually didnt fit.

can i cut the tiled enclosure with some sort of saw to widen the enclosure so the tub can fit? thanks in advance. oh also there is concrete board and 2 by 4's underneath the tile. thanks again.

See photos below

diamond blade & 4" grinder'll make quik work of sawing the tile,,, for the wood a sawzall might be easier than a circle saw,,, you MAY need to reinforce the 2 x 4's IF you cut them too narrow which may defeat their purpose - support
