Deron Williams to miss first game of the season with wrist bruise

Mike Stobe

D-Will and Hump inactive for Bucks game.

Deron Williams, who spent much of Christmas with his right wrist wrapped, will not play vs. the Bucks Wednesday night.

Nets PR announced shortly after 6:30 pm that Williams and Kris Humphries, who has a reported abdominal strain, will be inactive for the game. Humphries didn't travel to Milwaukee. He also missed the Celtics game on Christmas.

Williams has a bruised right wrist, according to the Nets. He has had wrist issues since arriving in New Jersey in February 2011, undergoing surgery to remove bone chips and scar tissue that April. Williams has not blamed his wrist issues for his woeful shooting but others have suggested there may be a connection.

C.J. Watson will start for the Nets, with Tyshawn Taylor seeing action behind him. Gerald Wallace will also play some minutes at the point, said Avery Johnson.
