Deron Williams’ wrist still not all the way back

Deron Williams was in Utah last weekend playing dodgeball.

He was playing for charity. Not exactly the high stakes of playing dodgeball to save your gym from being bought by Globo-Gym, but still a very worthy cause. Williams was playing with Kyle Korver, C.J. Miles and Wesley Mathews.

And he spoke with the Salt Lake Tribune and gave an update on the injured wrist he played through at the end of last season and had surgery on once the Nets were done in the playoff race (well, long after that, really).

Yeah, yeah. I wouldn’t say 100 percent. I’ve still got to do some strengthening and breaking up scar tissue. I think that’s a process with any surgery.

His wrist will get stronger and some scar tissue will get worked out when he goes to start playing in Turkey soon. While we may wonder why a guy on the verge of a huge free agent contract would risk injury playing overseas, it will be good for his wrist and he will be sharp once the Nets do open camp after the lockout ends.
