Nets’ Deron Williams attributes poor play to ankle pain

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams got off to a rough start of the season. He’s not picked up his game a bit, and he told Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News that his disappointing start to the season was due to the ankle injuries he was dealing with.

Williams downplayed the pressure of playing with a newly-signed max contract as to a factor that caused his slow start to the season. Instead, he told Bondy it was all about the pain in his ankles.

“From walking from here to that locker room felt like s—. It felt like s—,” he said. “What do you not understand? I could not walk. I could not walk up my stairs without it killing me. It would take me 10 minutes to get up my stairs, especially in the morning. I feel totally different right now. I feel like I have a whole new energy.”

Williams expressed poor body language throughout early-season play, and he had a number of issues with the media during that time. Now that he’s healthy, we’ll see if that changes, at least to some extent.
