Brooklyn Nets’ point guard Deron Williams’ rough season continues.
Williams has missed the Nets’ last two games with an ankle injury and according to Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York, he will miss at least two more games.
Williams has missed the last two games since spraining his left ankle, and his absence Friday against Miami and Saturday versus Toronto will mark the 14th and 15th games he misses. The 29-year-old has sprained his ankle three times this year, although it’s unknown when he suffered his latest setback. The first sprain cost him two games, while the second one forced him out for nine.
The point guard received a cortisone shot in both ankle joints and a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection in the lateral ligaments of both of his ankles to relieve inflammation on Monday. Last season, Williams also received three sets of cortisone shots and a PRP injection in both ankles.
Williams is averaging 13.6 points, 6.9 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game and the Nets have struggled to a 14-21 record.
They’ll host the Miami Heat Friday night at 8:00 pm EST and they’ll be in Toronto to play the Raptors Saturday at 7:00 pm EST.
