Nets Injury News: Deron Williams Has Ankle Tendinits

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams reportedly has ankle tendinitis and will miss two practice days, including the one today. Kristie Ackert of the NY Daily News writes that the team admitted that it could be lingering problem, but they do not believe it to be serious.
“We don’t think it’s anything serious, just a case of tendinitis, so he’ll be out (Saturday) for practice,” Avery Johnson said following Friday’s practice, “but we anticipate having him back Sunday or Monday.”
If he returns Monday, he will have only two days to practice before playing in the huge Brooklyn Nets home-opener against the New York Knicks. Hurricane Sandy may cause some problems for that game but nothing has been said about it as of now.

Williams was signed this off-season to a five-year extension to be the cornerstone for this new Brooklyn franchise. Last year, while dragging himself throughout most of the year as the team's only option, Williams averaged 21.0 points on 40.7% shooting while dishing out 8.7 assists. This year, with the return of Brook Lopez and the arrival of Joe Johnson, his stats are expected to go back to reflect his first half season in new Jersey's stats, at 15 points and 12.8 assists a game.
