Deron Williams out two days with ankle issue, gets injection. Not serious, says Avery Johnson

Alex Trautwig

Deron Williams, diagnosed with left ankle synovitis (inflamed tissue), received injection today and will miss two days of practice and could get a third day of rest with the Nets possibly off Sunday. He wasn't the only player missing from practice Friday. Josh Childress (left ankle), Andray Blatche (flu) & Keith Bogans (right knee/tailbone) didn't practice today. Bogans missed Wednesday's game against the Knicks with the same issue. Blatche tweeted later that he is feeling "much better."

Avery Johnson told beat reporters that the injury is not serious and expects him back at practice next week. He added that it may be something the team will have to monitor throughout the season. Synovitis is usually treated with anti-inflammatory drugs. At practice Friday, C.J. Watson filled in for Williams, with Tyshawn Taylor running the second unit.
