Deron Williams tweaks ankle again, leaves game

Wednesday night Deron Williams was back on the court for the Nets, recovered from the ankle injury that had sidelined him…

Well, at least he was for two quarters.

In the second quarter he tweaked his ankle again when he stepped on Kebma Walker’s foot. Williams shot his two free throws off the foul on the play, but then the Nets intentionally fouled so he could exit the game.

Williams went to the bench and did not start the third quarter (Shaun Livingston was in his place). Williams is out for the night.

The injury didn’t look that bad, but for a guy just coming off an ankle injury it’s not good. Once you sprain an ankle it is easier to re-injure and become a lingering thing, which is what the Nets want to avoid with D-Will.

They have enough problems and need to keep him healthy.

    I bet you Jason Kidd wishes he could put a uni back on right now.

      So do Nyets fans. Maybe he/Williams can trade jobs.

        They are starting to look like my boys last yr. Can’t get or stay healthy & absolutely NO chemistry. It recipe for disaster.

    When it rains, it pours. Hey, at least they beat the Heat that one time.

      The Nets probably weren’t planning to have their season highlight be the same as the Celtics.

    Bad ankles are a pain in the rear end. Took and still taking a lot of time for Curry’s ankle to heal and get back to a level where he’s not thinking about it.

    Been called this….the entire line-up is either injury prone or old. Yet all the “experts” soundly had them as high as 3rd in the East.
