An MRI taken on Deron Williams' right wrist on Wednesday revealed bone fragments and scar tissue. The Nets announced Friday morning that Williams will immediately undergo surgery on the wrist and, obviously, miss the remaining four games of the season.
Williams played in 12 games with the Nets after the trade from Utah, averaging 15.0 points and 12.8 assists. The Nets were 4-8 in those games.
Kris Humphries is also done for the season, not sufficiently recovered from the sprained ankle and bruised heal that he suffered in last Wednesday's loss to the Knicks. Humphries finishes the year with averages of 10.0 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.
The good news is that Anthony Morrow will return from a two-game absence to play against the Knicks, who will be missing Amar'e Stoudemire.
