Team sources have told beat writers that Deron Williams will return to the team next Tuesday vs. the Celtics. The Nets play this weekend in Milwaukee then return to Brooklyn.

Williams has missed the last eight straight games due to a sprained left ankle -- 10 overall with the injury.  The Nets are 2-8 without Williams in the lineup. Williams missed four games all of last season. He's averaging just 9.3 points and six assists per game. His Player Efficiency Rating of 13 is below the league average.
