Deron Williams and Kris Humphries Out vs. Celtics; Brooks To Start

Deron Williams told reporters at Wednesday morning's shootaround that he wouldn't be playing against the Celtics Wednesday night, because of his sore ribs. Williams injured the ribs in the second quarter against the Pacers on Monday in a collision with Tyler Hansbrough.

Kris Humphries, who suffered a sprained shoulder in Sunday's loss in Cleveland, will miss his second straight game. MarShon Brooks will get his first career start in place of Williams.
