Deron Williams is in a lot of pain every time his right wrist makes contact with the floor or another player, and that happens every game. After another fall and another poor shooting night on Friday in a loss that makes it near impossible for the Nets to make the playoffs, the idea of shutting Williams down for the season seemed to become a possibility.
Williams admits that he can't play his game and that the injury is "affecting me so much mentally." Avery Johnson adds that he's "very, very concerned" and that the Nets will have a "deep discussion" on how to proceed.
Meanwhile, Russian sports media reports that D-Will will participate in Russian basketball workshops this spring, under an agreement between Mikhail Prokhorov and the Russian Basketball Federation. The workshops are scheduled for May.
