Elsa

Deron Williams underwent surgery on both of his ankles Tuesday morning and the Nets announced later in the day that the surgeries were "successful" in a full press release.

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams underwent successful surgery today on both ankles, General Manager Billy King announced today. The surgery was performed by Nets’ foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Martin O’Malley.

Williams is expected to be on crutches for four-to-six weeks before beginning "light court activities" in August, according to Dr. O'Malley. The plan is for Williams to be able to participate in full basketball activities in September and be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around in October.

Last week, the Nets said surgeons would remove a bone chip removed from his right ankle, while the left needed an arthroscopic cleanout with removal of spurs from both the front and back of the ankle. The left ankle has long troubled Williams. There's been some suggestion the last two summers that Williams needed surgery.
