It seems as if Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams just can’t catch a break.
The former Illinois product did have a relatively healthy 2012-13 season with the Nets, though 2011-2012 was marred with injuries as the All-Star point guard missed nearly 30 games.
Now, with a completely revamped squad, Williams was expected to anchor the somewhat sinking Nets ship, though a preseason injury kept him out of action until recently. Now the talented point guard is out again, this time with a nasty ankle injury, which lead to Williams expressing his frustration to the New York Daily News:
“It’s frustrating,” Williams said after the game. “That’s the only way to describe it. I’m sick of being injured, sick of being hurt. I just want to be healthy so I can help my team.”
Thankfully for Williams and the Nets, x-ray’s taken after Williams suffered the sprain were negative so it’s simply a matter of pain tolerance.
Williams has already been ruled out for Brooklyn’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, though hopes to return in the near future.
