Deron Williams leaves in first quarter vs. Suns with ankle injury (VIDEO)

Nov 15, 2013, 9:59 PM EDT

PHOENIX – Deron Williams suffered another ankle injury during the first quarter in Phoenix on Friday, leaving the game with 7:20 to play in the first quarter.

Williams will not return to the game, the team announced.

In Brooklyn’s loss to Sacramento on Wednesday, Williams tweaked his ankle in the second quarter, but stayed in the game and finished with 13 points and seven assists while playing 35 minutes.

This injury appeared to be much worse, as Williams remained down in obvious pain before hopping off the floor and straight into the locker room. Brooklyn is just 2-5 to start the season, and the team trailed by as many as 12 points in the first quarter in Phoenix.

    Ouch, to bad Brooklyn. It’s still early and they could turn it around. I was never sold on the whole KG/Pierce thing. I thought their preseason hype was unjustified.

    This guy is quickly becoming Mr. Glass.

    So that’s how they won the game?

    Going to the game tonight, hoping D will is playing as I don’t want the Clippers to thrash them at less than full strength.
