PLAYERS: Deron Williams
TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets
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. Williams told reporters that he suffered his ankle injury, which consists of a sprained right ankle and bone bruise, while he was working out in Utah, the place he calls home over the offseason. He continued through workouts after sustaining the injury, but he could tell something wasn't right. He brought up the injury when he met with the Nets' training staff, and a corresponding MRI revealed inflammation.Williams downplayed the walking boot, calling it a preventative measure. It makes sense for Brooklyn to be cautious considering it's the start of the new season. Williams also dealt with ankle injuries last season, so the team will want to curtail the issue early to avoid having him play through discomfort once again.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
