Williams Practices, Wrist Still Sore; Calls Playoffs "Definitely Doable"

Deron Williams had his first full contact practice with the Nets Sunday, a week after leaving to be present at the birth of his son, Desmond, and three weeks after the trade brought him East.  He says there's not much change in the condition of his wrist, that he'll need more rest after the season ends for it to heal completely.

"Multiple doctors told me that I need 3-4 weeks rest. I don’t know what else I can tell you about my wrist. You can stop asking me," Williams told beat reporters. Williams said he was unable to watch the Nets' wins over the Warriors and Clippers because the hospital in Dallas didn't have the NBA TV Package. He did follow it on line. 

As for the playoffs, Williams wouldn't shy away from the possibility. “Definitely. It’s definitely doable,” Williams said. “I know we have a lot of tough opponents, but anything is possible."

Meanwhile, Anthony Morrow had to leave the team following the death of his grandmother who helped raise him.  He is expected to return in time for Monday's game vs. the Celtics.
