Deron Williams practices, says he'll play vs. Knicks.

USA TODAY Sports

Deron Williams, who's missed five straight games and the entire trip to London, says he will play vs. the Knicks Monday after participating fully in practice. Jason Kidd, however, says Williams will be a "game-time decision." D-Will, troubled by ankle sprains all season, underwent PRP treatments and cortisone shots to help relieve his ankle issues.

Shaun Livingston made it clear the opponent, venue and playoff picture matters Monday.

There's no indication yet on whether Williams will be under any minutes restrictions if he does play. Nets are 4-1 in his absence with Livingston and Alan Anderson filling in for him. Williams played in the first two games of 2014, both wins, scoring 21 and 29.

Neither Marquis Teague nor Tyshawn Taylor will be available Monday. The Nets trades with the Bulls and Pelicans won't be official until Tuesday, after the Martin Luther King holiday. Teague has suited up Saturday --and probably will again Monday-- because Chicago needed 12 active bodies.
