Deron Williams will NOT play against the Knicks; Pierce, Terry and Kirilenko also OUT

Streeter Lecka

Tonight, the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks will get together for the first time this season, one in which they were both supposed to make a run at the Eastern Conference Title. Both teams, however, are stuck at the bottom of not only the Atlantic Division, but at the bottom of the NBA.

Translation: they both stink.

Once again, the Nets will suit up without their cornerstone point guard, Deron Williams, who will miss tonight's game with an ankle injury.

Yes, no real surprise here on Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko who are all OUT as well.

It is expected that Alan Anderson will start once again for Pierce and there's been no decision made as of yet, but Tyshawn Taylor has started for the Nets at point guard over the last two games, so he might draw his third start tonight against the Knicks.
