As expected, the Nets have announced that Shawne Williams is out for the rest of the season. The 6'9" small forward underwent surgery on his foot Wednesday morning and two bone fragments were removed. The surgery was performed by Dr. Martin O'Malley and Dr. Riley Williams III, team orthopedist (and a busy, busy man).
The injury was more serious than initially believed and Williams needed to have three screws placed in his foot.
The Nets' three season-ending injuries --Williams, Damion James and Keith Bogans-- lead the NBA. So do the 113 games lost to injury, illness and personal reasons. Williams, unlike James and Bogans, has another year on his contract and the Nets said he should be able to return for training camp. He finished the season with averages of 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds.
