Found October 29, 2012 on NBA Injury News:
Deron Williams may need some clean-up work done on his left ankle in the offseason.  The Brooklyn Nets point guard admitted that he may undergo surgery once the season is complete.  However, the injury is not expected to cause him much trouble during the regular season. Williams has missed the last two practices with what the team is now calling ankle synovitis says Mike Mazzeo of ESPN New York.  Williams received a cortisone shot on Thursday and should be able to play in the team's regular season opener on Thursday.Williams is considered one of the best point guards in the league.  He averaged 21.0 points per games last season and 8.7 assists per game.  He has been one of the bright spots for the Nets as they continue to struggle to find an identity.  With the move to Brooklyn, the team and Williams hopes they can get on the right track and become a contender.  That won't happen, of course, if this injury does hamper Williams throughout the entire regular season. Williams has averaged 17.6 points per game in his career and looks as if he just keeps getting better.  He is a three-time All-Star and looks like he will finish with many more appearances than that.  Williams spent the majority of his career with the Utah Jazz.  He was drafted by them in 2005 before eventually being traded to the Nets during the 2010-11 season. If Williams does undergo offseason surgery, it should be a minor arthroscopic procedure.  He should actually be able to walk not long after the procedure.
