It was announced earlier this week that Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams suffered an ankle injury. At the time, the team downplayed the ailment, saying Williams was expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Williams maintains that his ankle will be good to go Oct. 1 when Nets' camp begins, but he will undergo another MRI next week before he's able to be cleared to have his walking boot removed, according to Mike Mazzeo of ESPN New York.
“(My ankle’s) good. It’s good. As long as I’m ready for the start of the regular season (Oct. 30 in Cleveland), that’s all that matters, but I’ll be ready for the start of camp,” Williams said Thursday at his Dodgeball charity event in Manhattan.
