Deron Williams injury update: He will NOT play on Wednesday, cortisone, platelet rich plasma and more...

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Brooklyn Nets announced that Deron Williams will not play on Wednesday against the Golden State Warriors and will be re-evaluated at the end of the week.

Here are the details:

Following an MRI on Monday, January 6, Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams was diagnosed with a sprained left ankle. Williams was treated with a cortisone shot in the ankle joint, as well as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections into the lateral ligaments of the ankle. In addition, Williams received a PRP injection into his right ankle and a cortisone injection into his right ankle joint to relieve inflammation. Williams, who will miss Wednesday’s game versus Golden State, is currently in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated at the end of the week.

This certainly doesn't sound good for a return to action anytime in the near future. If there is some good news in all of this, the Nets play just four more times between now and January 20 -- with the team playing in London next week.

Brooklyn has won three straight games, and take on the Warriors, Heat and then the Raptors before heading to London.

We'll have more details later in the week when we have more information.
