Deron Williams out with a sprained ankle

The most consistent thing about the 13-21 Brooklyn Nets this season has been injuries. They are without star center Brook Lopez for the rest of the season, but otherwise maintain hope that the rest of their roster will someday all play together at full health. But that dream will have to wait just a bit longer.

Following an MRI on Monday, January 6, Nets point guard Deron Williams was diagnosed with a sprained left ankle.

Williams was treated with a cortisone shot in the ankle joint, as well as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections into the lateral ligaments of the ankle.

In addition, Williams received a PRP injection into his right ankle and a cortisone injection into his right ankle joint to relieve inflammation.

Williams, who will miss Wednesday’s game versus Golden State, is currently in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated at the end of the week.
